Over the years, the business relocated several times before settling in its premise at Teck Chye Terrace.
The second generation of the family has taken over the business.
Teochew porridge is a well-loved staple in the Teochew enclave of Hougang.
Its staple dishes include stir-fried vegetables, braised meats, and steamed fish, besides the well-loved classic fares such as salted egg and preserved vegetables.
