Joo Seng Teochew Porridge

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Forget that dim sum joint along Jalan Besar. For a comforting Chinese feast in the wee hours, nothing beats a steaming bowl of porridge and a fleet of humble yet hearty dishes. That a meal for two will only clock in at about $20 makes a trip to this supper haunt even better.
Joo Seng’s star dish, besides the porridge, of course, is the braised duck leg. It’s fall-off-the-bone tender and swimming in a savoury-sweet soya sauce base. The minced pork with black bean, another Teochew porridge staple, is flawless here, too. But whatever you do, it’s obligatory to request for an additional bowl of dark zhup – you’ll be liberally ladling that into your bowl, trust us.
