Everyone has their favorite comfort food, the go-to dish that you would want to have after a long trip, or when you are feeling less than 100%. For me, it has to be porridge, and among the different variations of this dish, nothing beats a good bowl of pork intestine porridge.

My go-to pork intestine porridge is the stall at New Lane, and in KL, the Jalan Sayur stall at night (tho it is a slightly different version)

Fortune favors those with a sense of adventure, and just a couple days ago while looking for something to fill my stomach between brunch and late dinner, I found myself at Kedai Kopi Khoong at Seapark. I sat my ass down and lo & behold: A pork intestine porridge stall! (well they also sell century egg porridge, raw fish porridge etc)

For RM 4.50, I got myself a slice of heaven for some 15 minutes, the intestine was crispy, the porridge flavorful, and those yummy bits you see in the photos above that aren’t intestines? Those are pork tongue, if you haven’t tried pork tongue, you need to!

The operators are an old couple, and very kind one at that. I actually dropped my wallet after gobbling up the porridge, but they kept it and return to me after I figured out my pockets was empty upon heading to the car.

So yea, go have some porridge, and by the way, the Kampar fish ball noodle there isn’t shabby either.

To be honest, growing up in Penang, I never really knew what Kampar fish ball noodle is all about. It was one of those hawker dishes that never really made much inroads to the island, much like pan mee and laksa Sarawak, and thus, rarely came up in my radar.

Then, a few weeks ago, someone asked me on twitter for a recommendation on Kampar fish ball noodle. Not knowing which is a good place to have this dish, I in turn asked around, and another fellow twitter user led me to Kedai Kopi Khoong at Seapark.

A good example of social media in everyday use 😀

I’ve actually been to this kopitiam quite a number of times, mostly to have the old men’s Chinese desserts in the afternoon (they are operated by VSOP club – which stands for Very Strong Old People). Little did I know that the kopitiam actually has Kampar Fish Ball Noodle in its signboard.

I ordered a bowl of the dry version Kampar fish ball noodle (RM 5)

I counted 5 types of fish balls & fish cake

Like most hawker noodle dishes, you can choose from kuih teow, mee hun, yellow noodle, etc.

My version came with noodle with a bit of dark sauce and accompanying five different ingredients – deep fried stuffed fuchok, deep fried fish ball, bouncy soup fish ball, a less bouncy version, and fried stuffed tofu. As per standard Kampar noodle, the condiment is a little plate of spicy chili sauce that has the consistency that’s quite similar to bottled chili sauce, but a lot hotter.

Did I like it? Yeah, with my limited experience in Kampar noodle, I did find that it was a pretty tasty affair. I like the variety that comes with the dish, furthermore, the soup was quite flavorful too.

If you haven’t had much Kampar noodle, perhaps it is time to try. For those who are more of an expert, what’s your favorite Kampar noodle stall?
