Ah Seah Teochew Porridge In Hougang Closing Soon, Owners Thank Customers For Support

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).

Sad to see them go

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.

Here’s hoping they’ll open their doors again in the future, whenever that may be.
