Eat-Zy Teow Chew Porridge & Rice @ Sunway Mas

14 09 2010

When I was working in Petaling Jaya a few years back, I remember eating Teow Chew Porridge during lunch at a coffee shop at Sea Park. Unlike the ordinary porridge served with pickles and salted egg, Teow Chew’s version has a whole lot more side dishes. This of course, makes the meal more appetizing. Imagine my surprise when I spotted a Teow Chew Porridge shop at Sunway Mas last week. My colleague wanted to try another shop at the vicinity of the area but since it was closed that day, we decided to try the porridge instead.

Here are the side dishes we took…

Veggies (RM 1.50 per plate)

Taufu (RM 1.50)

Fish (RM 3.00)

Egg (RM 1.50)

Chicken (RM 2.00)

Overall, I find the food to be quite tasty. It has been a while since I went to the one in Petaling Jaya (hence I can’t really compare) but the food at Eat-Zy Teow Chew was appetizing. Even my colleague agreed with me.

But the bowl of plain porridge (RM 1.50) wasn’t filling for me. I had to order another bowl of rice (which costs the same) to fill my stomach. Other than that, parking was horrendous as it took me quite a while before I could find a place to park. I guess the tasty meal sort of makes up for the inconveniences I experienced.

Fish porridge @ OUG

1 02 2010

I always enjoy eating ‘tin gai’ porridge at OUG. Located at the corner of Jalan Hujan Rahmat Dua, the stall is opened at night with a picture of a cartoon frog on its florescent signboard.

What makes this place so special? The porridge is thick and the ingredients (a choice of fish, tin gai, prawns and etc) are fresh. Each order is individually cooked using claypot thus giving it better flavour.

I don’t really have the name of the shop but it is located next to Pino’s.

Here are the pictures of their fish porridge.

As you can see the meat is thick and fresh. The porridge costs RM 7 per bowl. The serving is really generous and will definitely fill up an empty stomach in no time!

Hon Kee Porridge @ Petaling Street

8 01 2010

While Petaling Street or ‘Chi Cheong Kai’ is famous for imitation goods of all sorts, there are still a handful of stalls there which retains its traditional Chinatown heritage .

Fruit stalls are commonly seen with the traders shouting aloud the best price for their oranges or apples.

Even the longan stalls which have been trading there for ages are still seen at this place.

And of course, who could not recognise the famous ‘Air Mata Kuching’ or Longan drink stall at the junction where endless line of customers are eagerly wanting to quench their thirsts on a typical sunny day.

Petaling Street is also the place to go for cheap fresh flowers such as roses…

Since I was a young boy, I remember the scent of grilled chestnuts whenever I walked past the road.

But if there is one thing that everyone shouldn’t miss are the old restaurants that have been operating for generations. One fine example is Hon Kee porridge which has been selling their famous raw fish porridge since 1959. What makes this place really special is their fish porridge. Don’t be surprise to see a plate of raw fish on the table when you order their ‘sang yu chuk’.

The best part of the meal is when these slices of fish are poured into a bowl of steaming hot porridge.

You can imagine how tasty to porridge is filled with the goodness of fresh cooked fish!

We also ordered a bowl of ‘You Tiao’ to eat along with the porridge.

The easiest way to find Hon Kee Porridge by locating Hong Leong Bank. Hon Kee Porridge is just right opposite the bank. In fact, there are tables set up in front of the walkway of Hong Leong bank as well.
