Royal J’s Seafood – Famous Fried Porridge Malaysian Style

One day while at work, the friend suddenly mentioned to me about this place that serves fried porridge and it got me intrigued, and he told me I have to try. So I decided to make my way down one of the days for dinner. The place is situated in a kopitiam located about 10 minutes walk from Farrer Park mrt. If you exit through City Square, it would just be a short walk away.

Some of the dishes we wanted to try were sold out for the day, but at least we still got to try their fried porridge

Personally this fried porridge was interesting. I actually had no idea what was I expecting in terms of taste. I don’t necessarily think there is a wok hei taste even though it is fried in a wok, but more of mixing the flavours together to create a savoury porridge. So perhaps, think of your usual porridge cooked with Japanese pearl grains, cuttlefish, diced yam in a thick consistency topped with fried shallots, spring onion and fried pork lard. I would say it is a comforting dish though I think it can afford to have a little more seasoning to it

Tasty Fried Pork $12

So good, I give it 2 thumbs up. The pork was fried well with a crispy texture and coated with a sweet sauce. It felt like eating coffee ribs but yet the taste was somewhat different and unique

Salted Egg Squid $15

Nicely cooked squid, coated well with a delicious salted egg sauce that was flavourful and appetising

We regretted ordering the large porridge cos it was apparently too much for 3 of us. We forgot how filling yam can be. Still, I would still go back for their zhi char dishes which proved to be delicious in every way. And the dishes came quickly much to our surprise. And besides fried porridge in Singapore is not something you come across often. It is still unique in their own way
