During the weekend, we had our dinner at a seafood stall in Gurney Drive. This place is well known for its seafood porridge but they do serve noodles and rice as well. There is a consistent crowd particularly during weekends.

With a wide varieties of fresh seafood ingredients to choose from…

Large orders of porridge and noodle are served pipping hot in claypots whereas a single serving is usually served in a bowl. You can add and mix any seafood in one claypot. We had a big pot of fish porridge and a bowl of fish with thick beehoon garnished with spring onions. The fresh fish contribute to the sweetness of the soup and is so delicious.

Fried mee tiau was very spongy.

Delicious fish head cooked with yam which we had on our earlier visit.

This seafood stall is in Public Cafe (next to the famed Song River Cafe), directly facing the sea and is only open for dinner.

Why not try out the Perak Lane Porridge located near the traffic light (second shop from traffic light)? It’s wonderful!!! A wide range of choice from fish, crab, meat ball, liver to kidney to go either with porridge, bee hoon, mee sua or noodle. A MUST TRY place!

Sammy – I do visit this shop in Perak Lane and after the meal, I usually go for the peanut tong sui by the side of the stall.
