Hock Kee Teochew Porridge, Medan Ipoh, Ipoh

*TEOCHEW NANG CHIAK MUIH*  (Teochew clan eat porridge)

I LOVE porridge, I grow up eating porridge, whether it is plain or cooked with chicken, pork or fish... or even frog porridge... in fact my whole family loves porridge, the reason must be from my mom who frequently cooked porridge for us when we were young.  Another main reason is that my late father is from the Teochew clan and from there, maybe my mom cook porridge very often...

My kids love porridge too.. especially cooked with peanuts and roasted pork bones.  They can eat a big portion without realizing how much they have taken... LOL...  It is no more a "poor man's meal" eating porridge nowadays, in fact eating porridge outside can be more expensive than eating a plate of "chap farn" (mixed rice) 

One evening we came to Hock Kee Teochew Porridge restaurant at Medan Ipoh... first time going there and we just ordered three dishes to go with our three bowls of white porridge. 
Teochew styled porridge... plain white soft rice.... 

Claypot Beancurd with raw egg.... 
Oh, eggs with bitter gourd... 
And minced meat with salted fish... 
Long time no take!
Three dishes with three bowls of porridge cost around RM40.
Portions are quite big so it is more than enough for us... 


  1. Lol...i terbalik. Don't like porridge coz each time sick then have to eat porridge. That time not as advance as now . Only white porridge with kicap.

    1. hahahaa.. you are right.. sick that time sure eat porridge one..

  2. Is this the place next to Mokuren?

    1. No, it is opposite CJ HotPot... near the Phoenix Restaurant in Ipoh Garden East.. Medan Ipoh..

  3. Very nice and very reasonable price, I like the minced meat with salted fish the most, yums!

  4. Looks so good and comforting! It must be great if you are sick, too. Go ahead and laugh at me, but I am unsure just what porridge IS. Here, we have oatmeal, and we eat quite a lot. But this does not look like oats. What grain is it? So you cook it for five minutes like oatmeal?

    1. I won't laugh.. hahaa... Porridge is from rice, only thing is that we have to put more water and cook it longer to make it soft..

  5. I love porridge. Looks so delicious with the 3 dishes.

  6. I love Teochew porridge where they have everything like chap fan, you just pick what you want...but my problem is I would want so many things and it could get quite expensive.

  7. I agree, nowadays, eating outside, order porridge, then order those dishes, not cheap...

  8. I never like white porridge growing up but not the case as I am older. Lol.

    1. I grow up eating that... so I like it very much! hahaha

  9. I felt so warm to hear the words TEOCHEW NANG CHIAK MUIH!!! Our buttocks must be very Ang-Ang too. LOLOL

    You bet, I love porridge too and my Cantonese wife is shaking heads.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
