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:

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 …
