Porridge is often classified as a comfort food (for me) especially enjoying it during cold rainy day.
There are various versions of porridge which we are all familiar with in our growing up years. Commonly known are Teochew Muay, fish porridge, pork porridge, seafood porridge, lobster porridge and many more others that you can think of.
Prawn porridge is something new and unique especially coming from a prawn noodle stall.
There is a new kid on the block which I came across, HeyMe (I love this catchy stall name) that whips out surprisingly delicious power prawn porridge that catches my attention.
This porridge really caught me by surprise with its exceptionally umami flavoured prawn broth. It comes topped with deshelled prawn that are acceptable for the price of $3.50 (small bowl), pork slices, fishcake and crispy pork lards. The prawn broth used for the porridge is somewhat different from the prawn soup broth used in their prawn noodle.
Though HeyMe is supposedly to be known for selling prawn noodle, somehow their prawn noodle is at best consider as average in my opinion. Nothing much to shout about. There are other more deserving Power Prawn Noodle that is way more palatable.
Interestingly, they sell prawn meat roll at this stall too as a side to go along. It reminds me of the old-school type of ngoh hiang and each ingredient is highly visible. I would definitely recommend this side dish when you are here.
Head over to HeyMe should your cravings for the next soupy meal comes along especially on a cold rainy day. 😉
**Sad to learn that HeyMe is now permanently closed. 😂😂 Hope they are not one of the victim of Covid that forces them to exit from the F&B industry.
