Fried porridge is like the porridge version of fried rice where you literally fry porridge with an assortment of ingredients and seasonings. I first tried it back in 2017 when a chef from Ipoh served it at his coffeeshop stall. He has then hopped around and opened so many different zi-char stalls until I don’t even know where exactly he is now. But the good news is, you can now get fried porridge at Old World!

You have probably heard of Old World Bakuteh in Yishun which is well, not famous for their bak kut teh, but more for their fried porridge. They have just opened another outlet in T-Space!

One of the signatures is definitely Mixed Pig Organ Fried Porridge ($5). Owner Jemmy Yeo first cooks the porridge with his secret seasoning and only fry the porridge upon order. He adds a generous amount of intestines, liver, and sliced pork into the porridge and literally “fry” the rice until it is filled with wok-hei. I like that the intestines are well-cleaned and the meat is tender. If you are not a fan of innards, you can opt for Sliced Pork Fried Porridge ($5) instead.

The fried porridge is thick and starchy, so it gets heavy for me after just half a bowl. Hence, I prefer their Mixed Pig Organ Brised Mee Sua ($5). The silky smooth vermicelli never falls apart or stick together. It is garnished with plenty of coriander, minced garlic and fried shallots. Don’t forget to add some black vinegar to go with the mee sua. Every mouthful is full of flavour! It reminded me of the intestine mee sua I had in Taiwan.

The outlet at T-space does not serve bak kut teh, but you can enjoy their Mixed Pig’s Organ Soup ($4) or Pig Stomach Soup ($4). It is a very clean-tasting bowl of soup. Besides pairing the soup with rice, you can also pair it with fried mee sua.

The sides are excellent, though. I like the Braised Pig Trotter ($5) with meltingly tender meat and rich gelatinous skin. And the Fried Intestines ($6) which are crispy on the outside, and chewy on the inside.
