Although this stall has a different name from Seng Bee, but actually they're under the same boss. Seng Bee specialise in selling Chicken Rice, whereas Xin Mei specialise in selling pork congee.

Cantonese-style porridge

I usually like my congee very flavourful (some would say MSG-laden) but this one was delicious even though it wasn't so. It was grainy, cooked over fiery heat and subtle on the tastebuds. My grandma said it's very "Cantonese-style porridge". Ingredients-wise, I think they're quite generous for the price.

I especially like the fish & century egg one, which costs me about $3.50 if my memory serves me well. It comes with youtiao / deep fried dough sticks as well, for you to tear out and eat with your porridge or dip. I personally just eat it on its own because it's delicious as it is.

I'd definitely come back if I want to eat something warm.

Challenging ordeal

Definitely not a bowl for the un-initiated.

The store offers a wide variety of congee, but I'll recommend the fish congee, as it is the most delicious (You can't doubt the quality of the fish the owner uses) and it is really worth $3.50 a bowl, given the large amount of fish and you tiao in one serving. But be mentally prepared, within the swirling mix of congee lies dozens of small pieces of ginger, while no doubt high in nutritional value, leaves a fiery feeling down your throat and can seriously damage a gourmet experience for the faint-hearted.

Overall, the variety of congee sold is not really to my taste, but it is seriously worth a try. You never know, you'll love it
