Well, the name pork intestine porridge is a little misleading, but that’s just how it’s called in Hokkien. The ingredient includes not only boiled pork intestine, but also roasted pork (char siew), and deep fried crispy pork intestine. Sounds yummy isn’t it? Definately not for the faint hearted, then again it’s not really fear factor material.

For the best of this rare dish, you have to go to New Lane in Penang. The porridge is well cooked till individual grains are not visible, together with the main ingredients described above, some spring onion and a dash of white pepper is added. The boiled intestine is not overly soft nor too chewy, and the roasted pork was pretty good. However, the real gem is the deep fried crispy intestine, it is crunchy and carries a taste I can only described as a cross between bacon, dried pork, and deep fried pork fat. Basically all the good stuff.
