I'm not a big fan of these savoury rice puddings, but this is a place that has my childhood memories. Before I started eating pork, I would pick out the pork and have the rest of the pudding. So what is the reason why I love this place so much?
Well, we'd have to go back a long way to my childhood, before we all left Taiwan. My mum used to work in the vicinity, and either we would come here together, or she would take some home as lunch or afternoon snack. What is now the MRT, used to be a market. The place used to be a stall in the market place.
That's why, whenever we come to Longshan Temple, which is nearby, I'd always try and squeeze a spot in my tummy for this.
They only serve two things here: the rice puddings and milkfish thick soup. That's why the entire process of ordering, serving, and eating moves along quite fast.
You'll find garlic, chilli, vinegar, and pepper on the table, along with forks for the pudding.
And this is what my childhood tastes like!
You'll find a big chunk of meat in it. There is also an egg yolk.
Now, I don't normally order this thick soup, but thanks to my other half, I get to take a picture of the soup as well.
And some to take home to the parents, since we were heading home later that afternoon.
It's a small place, but since they only serve two kinds of dishes, it won't be a long wait, that is, if you have to wait at all.
It's an old shop with great food, and I'm recommending it to you all!
