They chose to go to this porridge steamboat place in Pudu called Farmland. Now Farmland is located along Jalan Pudu and they have 2 branches on the same stretch of road. We were supposed to have dinner at the original branch but a reservation mess up by the restaurant forced us to go to the new branch.
Let me just say that the food sucks. I had such high expectations for it... darn. Maybe it's the fact that we were in the new branch. When we first went to the original branch it was overcrowded and there were a bunch of people waiting outside just to get in. The new branch was the total opposite. It was barely half full.
Those present were:
The stars of the day are guy #3 and guy #4. From left: YL, YH, Tung (founder of dragon city), TT, and TT's gf (and no TT I didn't forget her name... I just don't know how to spell it). TT's just left the company and I'm going to take over his work... wheee.
From left: Wong, Sey, Marcus's gf, Mr. Marcus.
From left: MH, Melvin, Joey (very difficult to snap her picture) and YL again.
Fried Nam Yu Pork Ribs... not bad but nowhere near outstanding. This is common 'tai-chow' cooking.
The much talked about porridge broth. Well it's just normal porridge. Imagine putting some fishballs and what not in you porridge and you can enjoy eating what we had for porridge steamboat as well :)
They earn some points for their chilli sauce. It's not the ordinary thick sambal-like type of chilli they provide at other steamboat places.
YH demonstrates how to cook your very own egg during steamboat.
Crack and egg into your ladle (preferably the one with holes) and dip it into the boiling soup just enough to cook it but not enough for the egg to spill out and contaminate the soup. Don't let go of the ladle until the egg is cooked (personally I would just throw the whole ladle in and wait a few minutes).
