Duck Porridge From A Local Hawker
This was a bit of a shock when this arrived at my table this morning. The little picture above the hawker's stall showed a "duck porridge" that looked pretty straightforward with strips of duck meat sitting on white rice porridge. But when it came, the bowl was completely drenched in a brown sauce, while the rice was found by scooping underneath. The duck was also minced into little bits rather than in the strips in the picture.
Actually, in the end, it wasn't that bad nor as sweet as it looked (even though I had to add some strangely sour chili sauce in it for a little more kick). And I probably could have gotten it the way I was expecting if I had made it a little more clear to the lady. But I was just surprised at all that gravy doused on top, that's all.
