Teochew Porridge At Sin Hup Heng, Ipoh

PORRIDGE DAY...

My first meal of the day was around 11 plus in the morning.  We decided to go for porridge along Theatre Street, the shop is called Sin Hup Heng, Chaozhou porridge (Teochew).  I like the food here cos the dishes are served hot from the kitchen.  As usual, do not go during peak hours like 12-2pm, the place will be packed especially now during RMCO, the tables will be quite limited.  

For some places, it is quite difficult to find tables for 4 especially when it is just a shop lot.  Since there were 4 of us yesterday, the lady boss approached one lady to sit at another table for 3 and she was so nice to give up her table for us 4.  We ordered few dishes and I ended up taking nearly two bowls of sweet potato porridge. 
6 dishes in total....
Clams cooked with soybeans... 
Watercress vegetables in sambal sauce... 
Our favourite fish to go with porridge...
Salted Ikan Kembong...
Crispy fried pork... a bit on the salty side too....
Goes very well with porridge...
Omelette with big onions.... 
Braised beancurd... 
Controlled myself.... one and a half bowls I consumed.... 
And having fun with the "photographer"...
You take me, I take you.... 
Total cost... RM70 for the 4 of us... 
Porridge is not cheap nowadays... that is for sure.

  1. Clams are more expensive and you have fish too. Do they serve half bowl of congee?

  2. The fish looks hard because they have been deep fried.

  3. I like this kind of porridge, Teochew porridge where one can order a few dishes to go with the porridge. Not sure if I can get it here - the last time I had that was in 2009 at a shop opposite Low Yat in KL:

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
