Porridge at 三元粥品专家

Found this porridge shop (三元粥品专家)inadvertently whilst seeking for the renowned bakeries of almond cookies, namely the Koi Kei Bakery (钜记饼家)and the Choi Heong Yuen Bakery (咀香园饼家).
The interior is very much like the quaint Hong Kong-styled Cha Chan Teng (茶餐厅),limited space with small tables layout, none of the table was big enough for us, eventually the 8 of us had to sit at 3 separate tables!
The business hours are
7am to 11am
7pm to 12.30pm
This was the Auntie who buzzed around for order taking at the same time making preparation. That's why it took ages to serve!The hand-made meat balls (both pork and beef) are the best selling items here. Auntie asked if we want to add in raw egg, heard this enhances the taste and the texture of the porridge. Haunted by the fear of Salmonella infections, none of us had courage to try.Since water crab congee was not available, Moon and myself chose porridge with pork balls+fish. The pork balls were excellent and fishy smell was adeptly done away, GOOD!! Brother in law had beef balls+pork liver. The pork liver was amazingly well done, never overly cooked. As for the beef balls, not the best but went well with this super smooth porridge.Cheong Chai, another cousin of Moon does not have any liking for porridge. Being so considerate, Auntie even suggested us to get him some chee cheong fun take away from the stall outside.

This was the plain chee cheong fun (rice noodle roll) we bought for Cheong Chai, with sauce and mustard.

The porridge, or rather the hospitality of Auntie that wins my high praise. Moon and myself will definitely come again on our next visit to Macau.
