Second day in 2011, and we went to Petaling Street for some old school goodies – the Hon Kee Famous Porridge. A hawker stall that has been in operation since 1959, when most of our parents are still licking lollies.

We ordered a bowl of sang yu (raw fish, haruan) porridge, pork intestine porridge, a serving of yao cha kuai, and two iced herbal tea. There are only a few tables right outside the stall, but they do have plenty of seats just across the road right outside Hong Leong Bank.
pork intestine porridge & raw fish porridge
The pork intestine porridge had plenty of crunchy intestine and sliced tongue/etc, and served with some shredded ginger and chopped spring onion, yums! This is as good as they get, but I’d wish that they have coagulated pork blood though.
The raw fish porridge is served with the fish raw and on a separate plate. Adding them into the piping hot porridge cooks the fish almost instantly though, fresh and flavorful, it was actually very good – except for the tiny problem of getting too sweaty when it is hot like this afternoon.
The yao char kuai turned out to be good too. Always nice to have a bit of different texture.

There are always some misconception that food at this area is priced artificially high to slaughter them tourists, we paid RM 14+ for two bowls of porridge, two iced drinks, and a serving of yao char kuai, pretty good value for money if you ask me.
