Weekend Food List: Lobster Porridge

There have been many rainy days of late, and when it's storming, the best thing for me to tuck into is something hot, soupy and comforting.

The signature lobster porridge at Wan He Lou on Maude Road, off Jalan Besar, was just what I needed last week.

The Teochew-style porridge is made luxe and extravagant by the addition of sweet lobster and lobster roe (from $39.90 for 100g).

The golden porridge broth is flavourful, but not rich or cloying.

Its fried seafood potstickers ($12 for six) are also a tasty treat.

But ask for the sesame sauce on the side or else the dumplings will come slathered with it. Other popular dishes here include green dragon vegetable with dried shrimp (from $10.90), crispy lotus root with salted egg (from $11.90) and pan-fried kurobuta pork (from $14.90).
