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... 
Nice?

  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..

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
