When it comes to casual family dinners at ABC Market, one stall that always comes to mind is Gu Zao Ren Seafood Taiwan Porridge. They serve consistently good and reasonably priced dishes, which is the reason why we have been frequenting them for years!

Gu Zao Ren Seafood Taiwan Porridge

As its name suggests, customers are offered a choice of porridge in addition to rice. The porridge is served with tapioca!

Anyway, here’s a sampling of some of our favourite dishes.

There’s the flavourful sze-chuan chicken with dry chilli, a dish more commonly known by its Chinese name, “gong bao ji ding”.

Fried kang kong belachan. I’m hardly a vegetable lover so for me to actually like a vegetable dish, it has to be really good!

Sweet & Sour Sliced Fish

Sweet & Sour Sliced Fish

Sweet and sour sliced fish. Now, this is one dish that truly gives you value for money. For just 7 dollars (used to be 6), you are given a generous serving of fish! The lousy photo I took depicting mostly vegetables simply doesn’t do it justice.
