Long Xia Zhou Shi Jia, Orchard Central

Lobster Porridge

This was a totally random visit. Sitting on the grounds of the former Duo Le (181 Orchard Rd #08-09, 6634-7318), these guys specialized in lobster porridge, which looked pretty good from a distance with its yellowish tint and scallion garnish. Besides, they were running a promo of two bowls for the price of one at S$29.90 (US$22.80), so we figured that we'd give it a try.

Fortunately, it worked for me, with a savory yet thin lobster-based soup and a decent chunk of meat in the small lobster half. It was actually more of a Teochew mue rice soup rather than the sludgy Cantonese congee that I was expecting...and I wish they provided more rice at that. But that didn't matter since the broth was the best part of this anyway, even if it wasn't as strong Keisuke's ebi ramen.

This sure does look tastier than congee, but not very filling. Where there any noodles to help fill you up?
