In April, major food events like World Gourmet Summit and Food Hotel Asia has fed us well. But may I say, too well. The usual impressive, rich and potent food, when served too often, triggers one’s craving for the simple. Something simple yet satiable. So this month we give spotlight to the Teochews, the experts at using the freshness and quality of the ingredients for taste and flavours. Here are our favourite five stalls that tout the infamous Teochew muay.

Ah SeahTeochew Porridge

Fav Five Teochew PorridgeThese empty tables and chairs will be filled up within minutes when it opens for business

They have a long history, which according to them, goes way back to 1955. There are about 50 items, ranging from the traditional fare to hearty homecooked dishes. Examples include stewed pig trotters, minced pork and stewed tofu, sambal clams and assam fish. Many also come for their softly stewed cabbage, own-made fish cake and the braised duck. The porridge here is milkier and the grains are softer than the ones served elsewhere.

Fav Five Teochew PorridgeThe Teochew Muay from this stall is one of the main attractions of this hawker centre in Ang Mo KioThough they don’t offer a very wide array but what they do offer, they do it very well.

The stewed duck is intense in flavour while the fish cake is soft yet bouncy. The robust flavour of the minced pork explains its popularity. Even the simple stir-fried cabbage comes with superb wok hei. But be warned that it is sold out very quickly.The steamed fish is cheap and fresh, and it goes very well with the fermented soybean sauce.

10.30am – 2pm, 6.4pm – 10pm, closes on Mondays

Teo Seng Porridge Stall

Fav Five Teochew PorridgeTeo Heng Porridge Stall is hidden at the corner of Hong Lim Food Centre The fish is always fresh; the stewed eggs are served like Japanese hanjukitamago – firm on the outside but creamy in the centre; and the pig innards are clean,infused with the essence of the soy sauce stew. Porridge is done al dente with a distinctive rice fragrance. When in doubt, ask them to place a selection of the best (e.g. stewed eggs, salted mustard leaves, fish cakes, tau pok and sliced duck) on a platter and down it with their porridge.

8am – 2pm, closes on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays

Teck Teochew Porridge

Fav Five Teochew PorridgeTeck Teochew Porridge offers a wide range of dishesThere is an immense range of dishes. Some examples are stewed duck, pork belly, tofu and steamed seafood. Many swear by their giant crayfish, cold crab and steamed tau kee sheets, cooked with minced meat sauce. The chai poomelette comes thick and fluffy. We also like their humble stir-fried leeks andsteamed sotong with roe, with an accompanying plum sauce dip. Porridge is done traditional Teochew style – grainy, milky and al dente. What’s alluring here is that they are constantly cooking fresh pots of something to replenish whatever is diminishing.

Teochew Rice and Porridge

Fav Five Teochew PorridgeAt 5pm the early dinner crowd come to this stall for leftovers from lunch while the old lady prepares the next …They sell very traditional Teochew dishes like steamed baby squid with plum sauce dip, shark’s meat in spicy blackbean sauce, steamed rabbit fish and minced pork with black bean sauce. The stewed pork skin here is done particularly well – gelatinous with a slight springiness. They also offer the unusual stir-fried mustard leaves which has a gently bitter accent with a soft crunchy texture.

    Amid the urban decay of Camden, New Jersey -- one of the poorest and most dangerous of US cities -- a former drug dealer who did prison time is pushing to give his community a new lease on life. "I was not supposed to be on this side of statistics -- to be alive, free, to take care of my kids," Anthony Dillard, now an entrepreneur and artist, told AFP. Together with his partner AJ Riggs, he created a fashion label last year -- "Made in Camden" -- in the aim of "restoring the morale and pride …
