Porridge with raw fish

One of my favourite meals is a bowl of rice porridge. I love how the steam mists my glasses as I inhale the scent of sesame oil that is drizzled onto the porridge. I love the smooth texture, and enjoy the sensation of the almost liquid substance gliding down my throat. The strips of raw sliced ginger and chopped chinese parsley all heighten the overall sensation of consuming this deceivingly simple dish.

fried intestines

Fried intestines (RM3) are a lovely addition too. The crunchy pieces, a little sweet, get slightly softened when thrown into a hot bowl of porridge and add a new dimension of textures.

Fried Yau Char Kwai

Throw in some fried yau char kwai (chinese crullers)(RM1 for a big plate) into the bowl of porridge. These amazingly simple and aromatic dough puffs are such a pleasure to eat.

Raw fish - river carp (wan yue)

I love fish, and this place serves raw wan yue (river carp)(RM4.50) which is stirred into the bowl of porridge. The heat cooks the fish almost instantaneously.

Porridge with Pork meatballs

Also available is Pretty Pui’s favourite – Porridge with meatballs (RM4).
