Qi Qiong Gai Hon Kee @ Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur

The famous Hon Kee porridge will be my last post of my Petaling Street food hunt trilogy which lead to me missing my bus, which is not my fault at all! Argh!! Transnasional you are gonna lose me as your customer forever!

Back to Hon Kee porridge, I was walking around Petaling Street and see what will be my breakfast, and suddenly I notice, eh…. Hon Kee! I only tried them at Lot 10 Hutong before, and I must say they are quite good. I never know I actually walk past them many times since it’s located diagonally opposite to the Air Mata Kucing stall that I patronize everytime I am there. Sigh……

Hong Kee Porridge @ Kuala Lumpur-4

Since their stall is very small, there isn’t a place for us to sit there. Luckily, they did set up quite a number of tables directly in front of Hong Leong Bank, and luckily it’s Sunday and the bank is closed. The porridge here is as smooth and nice as their branch in Lot 10, a good breakfast to start the day!

Sai Lam Coffee Shop @ Penang

When mentioned about beef noodle, it’s either soup based, or dry based. Dry based is usually like Wantan Noodle, just that it’s with beef on top.

So here I am, at Sai Lam Coffee shop for it’s Ngau Lam Mee. It’s with mountain full of beef as I opt for “kar liu”, but it seems a bit overkill since all is just meat, but not it’s innards 😦

The meat itself is quite soft and tender, but still not the best around in town. Again, if only they have more “ngau lam” instead of just meat, then it will taste better. The noodle itself is not bad though, but might be a bit too salty for some people. 6.8/10

Magazine Road Teochew Porridge @ Penang

What is the best way to fill up your stomach? Seating? Standing? No, both are WRONG! The best way should be squatting! Squatting and eat is just like how you are doing big business every morning if your house don’t have a seated toilet bowl! Why is this the best way? Because everything you fill in, will direct come out from the hole down there, and you will store 0% fat, and you will be healthy, just kidding.

Well, I was always attracted to this place due to it super unique seating style, squatting on a small piece of bangku (stool) while eating. I always wonder why the hell will people want to eat like this when they can seat properly.Besides, although I never seat there when I am eating there, I find that you need skills to squat and eat. The stool ain’t big and if you stacked it up, you might just fall down if you can’t balance yourself properly.

My mum do told me that this place is frequently visited by trishaw (tricycle) fellows as the Teochew style porridge served here is good and most importantly, Cheap!

Cintra Street Porridge @ Penang

After lurking at What2seeonline, I decided to head to Cintra Street 1 fine night. Just when we reach there, the whole road was dark with only 1 stall with lights on, which was my target stall.

You can opt to sit inside the coffee shop behind or opposite the stall, but we opt to sit at the single only table available beside the stall as I notice both coffee shop is going to close soon (it was around 10.30pm that time).

The small stall only had chicken and fish porridge, along with steamed chicken for the extra kick. The steamed chicken here is good stuff. The skin is smooth, meat is tender, and taste dammed nice! Besides, adding the gravy to the porridge will really enhance it to the max, awesommmme! 8.3/10

cinta street fish porridge @ Penang-4

The chicken fish porridge (yee sang kai chuk) here is good. The porridge is smooth and thick, and with good amount of sesame oil on top, it taste awesome!!  8.8/10

Lot 10 Hutong @ Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur

Lot 10 Hutong, definitely 1 of the hype for food lovers these days at Bukit Bintang area. It’s a food court that features 25 street food stalls that are selling famous local Chinese cuisine which have survived for at least 50 years, all hand-picked by Tan Sri Francis Yeoh, the managing director of YTL Corp Bhd group.

This is really a great idea, as one will not need to travel all around Kuala Lumpur to taste those nice food, as they only need to head to Lot 10 and they will be spoil with the choice of great food available. However I am actually quite skeptical of the quality of the food before I visit. However, after reading much review, it seems that the food serve there is quite good, so here am I.
