It was a Saturday at noon, and still the queue at Piao Ji Fish Porridge (標記魚粥) at Amoy Street Food Center averaged 35 minutes. Good lawwd. One could literally clear emails and pay for bills while waiting in line. It was more bearable today because most of the stalls were closed and foot traffic was minimal; there were no office crowds too.
The friends and I came here after gym class in dri-fit gear, so we didn't mind sweating it out. I'll never understand how people can deal with eating at this food center in the crazy heat on week days. There was a constant breeze coming through this afternoon, so it wasn't so bad. Still! Sipping hot soup + our humidity = being completely drenched by the time we were done with the meal. Luckily we were headed straight home to get a cold shower.
The stall doesn't offer any options for fried fish slices. Just freshly broiled in soup. For carbs, they don't seem to do noodles or beehoon either. One could only pick steamed white rice. Didn't need the carbs. I wasn't too hungry, so just the portion of protein and soup were fine for me. Since we queued so long for it, I got a big portion. Hahahaha. S$12 for the large bowl. The slices of mackerel were superb. Came with fish roe too. Quite treat dipping them into the chilli and soy sauce. Wheeeeee!
