Fried Porridge In Ipoh Garden South

ANOTHER PORRIDGE STORY YA!!

This time, the porridge is not a familiar sight in Ipoh, in fact, many of my friends have not heard or tasted this before.  The shop is called Chairman Teochew Cuisine, it was recently opened in Ipoh Garden South...I remember the first time my friend and I went in, it was around 11am in the morning.  There was not a single customer in sight and we did a quick U-turn out from the shop.  So bad of us, right?  aaahhhhh.....

I forgot about this shop until my foodie neighbour suggested going for fried porridge... huh.. what is that, where?  Don't ask, just follow me..... he said....

My neighbour has been a regular customer to this shop since don't-know-when, in fact, he was initially invited by the owner of the shop himself to initiate the dishes so that he could advertise through the social media.  Yeah, he has so many followers that he is now a renowned and familiar face in the social media.  That is why he often get privileges.... its a win-win situation.... LOL...

We ordered these....
Simple and yet satisfying....
Oh plus this dish which came in last....
Steamed minced pork with salted eggs....
Ok, the porridge much awaited for.... 
Fried porridge is the actual name...
(Chau chook)
I saw bits of diced roasted pork, cuttlefish.... 
Yes, it was tasty... 
Small portion RM15... enough for the 3 of us...
Salted kembong fish.... the boss did his own marinating of the fish.... 
Not so salty as sold in the markets... 
Two pieces RM16
Emperor vegetables (Tai Wong Choy) to go with the meal.... RM10
The price of the meal came to RM44 plus drinks....

A few days later, we went back to the same shop to try other dishes.....
Yes, we ordered fried porridge again.... 
Claypot Kangkung.... 
Steamed yam with pork belly....
Small portion of black vinegar pork trotter.... 
Three dishes with the fried porridge cost around RM65.....
And the Chairmen Teochew Cuisine....
Akan dibuka? (Opening soon)
Sudah dibuka la.... (It's alreadt opened)

  1. So was the porridge actually fried? Maybe only the things in it were fried, like the pork.

  3. I like all the dishes in your post except I prefer plain congee than fried ones because fried ones a bit too oily.

  5. Never heard of fried porridge. Make me think of fried ice cream. Lol.

    The minced meat looked delicious. I love that, with salted fish in it.

  6. Fried porridge is very unique! I hope to try it at Starling Mall.
    I always love to eat deep fried crispy fish. Salted kembong fish is new to me. I will search for this recipe online.

DESSERTS OVER... THE MAIN MEAL CAME... It should be the other way round but knowing us, desserts would go to waste after this main meal.  So...
