    You wouldn’t ask for a more welcoming name, short and sweet, just like the way mum calls us to have our meal. This humble restaurant takes immense pride in their Teochew porridge and mind-boggling spread of dishes that are cooked to a homey style. The simple and comforting dish offers a smooth mouthful and their fermented soy beans and lashes of soy sauce just make it even better. The main draw here is their signature dishes – braised pork and pork innards, which has a subtle balance of saltiness and savouriness, and their steamed fish that just flakes off the bone with the mildest touch. Without any seasonings or sauces used, the fish just shines with its natural flavour and sweetness, complementing the plain porridge straightaway.

    Sweet Home Kopitiam

    A comfy restaurant at the heart of Taman Pelangi that dishes out a melange of Western and local fare that are wallet-friendly. The charming atmosphere is habitually filled with patrons who mostly go head over heels for their nasi lemak. If you need something less feisty and slides down your throat like melted butter, you can never afford to miss their Teochew porridge. Deftly done to the right texture, not too lumpy and not too watery, and paired with various condiments that elevate the balmy dish, you may opt for seconds or thirds. 

    Tips

    Breakfast and lunch hours are filled to the brim, therefore be sure of getting in early
