We Malaysians usually have heavy breakfast compare to most other countries, Nasi Lemak, Curry Mee, Char Koay Teow oh gosh….so sinful. Hence here I present something, healthy for breakfast! Porridge!!!

The full glory of warm oyster porridge, with toppings such as braised pork, spring onions, deep fried shallots and the uncommon use of eel flakes.

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!
