It’s easy to believe that our favourite restaurants would last for a lifetime, especially if they’ve been around for decades.
Sadly, goodbyes could come unexpectedly, which seems to be the case for Ah Seah Teochew Porridge, which will apparently be closing down on 19 Jun 2022. The owner, Ms Joyce Lee, shared the news on Facebook yesterday (26 May).
The restaurant at Teck Chye Terrace in Hougang has served customers for nearly 58 years.
On Thursday (26 May), the owners of Ah Seah Teochew Porridge announced the upcoming closure of the famous restaurant.
They thanked loyal and supportive patrons that have enjoyed their traditional dishes and confirmed their last day of operations to be 19 Jun 2022.
While they look forward to the day that they will be serving customers again, it is unknown whether they will be considering continuing the business in the foreseeable future.
Ah Seah Teochew Porridge is a family-run business known for their traditional Teochew porridge. They also serve braised duck, large intestines, steamed pomfret, and a large variety of more than 50 dishes.
According to Roots.sg, the founder set up their first stall in Lim Tua Tow market in 1964.
Over the years, their location has changed, with their current outlet occupying a spot at Teck Chye Terrace for several decades.
If you’re a fan of Teochew porridge and happen to be in the area, do drop by to try their food one last time, before the restaurant closes.

Nothing lasts forever — and sadly this applies to restaurants we’ve frequented for decades.
It’s sad to see Ah Seah Teochew Porridge close after almost six decades in business. Still, we wish the family all the best for their future endeavors.
