Sin Heng Kee Porridge @ Chong Pang Yishun ● Taste Nice, Good Portion, Price Right, Nice Environment

Sin Heng Kee Porridge in Yishun first caught my eye because it sported a longer queue than the Toto shop next door 😱 So, I earmarked it for a visit next time. Finally, made it after nearly two years 🤭

Anyway, Sin Heng Kee here is still as popular and the porridge is really good 👍

Restaurant name: Sin Heng Kee Porridge

Address: 101 Yishun Ave 5, #01-19/21, Singapore 760101 (Chong Pang Village)

Nearest MRT: 15 minutes walk from Yishun station

Hours: 7:00am - 9:00pm (Tues & Thurs off)

(Sin Heng Kee has another outlet at block 685 Hougang Street 61.)

When you get here, quickly get in line in the queue which can build up fast 😅 Get a quicker buddy to secure a table 🤭

Ordering is fast food style - just say the number of the type of porridge (displayed in the picture menu overhead), pay and you will be given a receipt and queue number.

The picture menu makes ordering very easy. Prices are reasonable for what we are getting.


Go back to your table, wait and collect your food from the counter when your number is flashed or called.

Furnishings are very simple in Sin Heng Kee but very clean and the air conditioning is up to the task even in today's super hot weather.

We had three bowls - signature, fish and pork with century egg.

First looks, the fried shallot can be more fragrant and a spoonful of shallot oil would make everything nicer 😊

I had the signature, which is a grand mix of everything - fish, pork, offal, pork ball, century egg, dried squid, etc in the porridge.

The comforting, hearty porridge is done in the Hainanese style - it is thick and heavy with some rice grains partially dissolved.

(Hainanese porridge is midway between the Teochew style which is watery and most rice grains are whole, and the Cantonese silky congee style where the rice grains are invisible as they are completely dissolved.)

The thing I like about Sin Heng Kee porridge is it is well infused with flavours. Furthermore, the ingredients (pork, fish, etc) are well seasoned and they add their flavours into the porridge. So, the porridge, thick and heavy is well loaded with layers of infused flavours.

I also like it that the porridge stayed tongue scathing hot till the end of the meal even though the air con was blasting.

So, you can't go wrong at Sin Heng Kee porridge.

But, if there's one thing I don't like, it is they use dory fish i.e. farmed catfish which is mushy soft in texture and I don't like its taste.

I like Sin Heng Kee's hearty porridge for its heavy texture and rich flavours at a reasonable price in a comfortable environment.

I will be back for more (eyeing the frog leg porridge).
