Fresh Crispy Fish Porridge At Kar Heng, Ipoh

PORRIDGE DAY.... my foodie friend put up this shop selling porridge in his FB account a couple of times last year and I only went to check out this shop after the Movement Control Order was lifted.  Ever since June, I have been to this shop three times.  I am from the clan "Teochew" ... popularly known for eating porridge daily.  We were "taught" from our toddler years to take porridge and I do not mind taking every now and then.  

Nowadays porridge are more expensive than the "mixed rice" unlike those days, porridge was normally for the poorer and lower income people.  Coming back to my post, this corner shop is called Kar Heng, located along Jalan Chamberlain.  A couple manned this stall and they are very friendly.... 

Each of us ordered a bowl each... 3 types of eggs combination... RM4.50
Fried Fish RM7
This steamed type too was RM7...
Andy wanted a plate of chee cheong fun to share among 3 of us.... RM4.20
Our lunch... full to the brim.... 
We have to packet home a plate of fish for another day...
Greedy Threesome!

  2. The Teochews love their porridge! Up till now, I still prefer rice. I would enjoy the fish - fried or steamed. And the CCF too!

  4. We do not really have this kind of porridge here. The closest thing would be oatmeal.

  5. Fried or steam, I like both fishes. Used to enjoy fish porridge as a kids but been ages since I had one. Almost every night my dad would tapau fish porridge from Lau Ya Keng, an old food centre in Carpenter Street for supper back then.

  7. I am not a Teochew but I love porridge too probably because I grow up eating lots of porridge. This place serves good porridge. I don't mind going there every now and then for their porridge. Next time, should also order the ccf to try.
