So one day while going to PJ State for some banking needs, I ended up in this kopitiam right next to UOB bank. As I was pondering what to have for breakfast, the claypot thingy on the other table captured my attention. A closer peek, and I just had to order it. Seafood porridge.

well kerol seemed happy, no?

I ordered seafood porridge, while my housemate kerol had the crab porridge. We had to wait for about 25 minutes before the food came as the business was pretty good. They do give you something to chew upon (yau char kuai) while waiting.

omfg tasty sial

The seafood porridge came with fish, prawn and plenty of lala (type of clam) while the crab porridge came with a whole crab. Parsley and thin sliced ginger were standard. The porridge was very soft and cooked beyond recognition of individual rice grain. The taste was very good, with just the right amount of sesame aroma while indulges you on rich seafood sweetness. You gotta try this.

The seafood porridge is RM 14 while the crab, RM 14.50. They do serve cheaper alternatives, and I believe there’s crab porridge that doesn’t come with all the shell.

  11. Is this better than the famous Penang Perak Lane’s one?

  12. Just to remind you… when you wanna give a direction for your friends to this kopitiam… Please do not tell as “just opposite the MPPJ building” !!!


  13. Yeah, saygore is right!!! The lou ngap is excellent… Served during dinner time… BE THERE BEFORE 9PM or it’s sold out….their salted veg is nice too….

  14. Try the prawn mee in this restaurant. Breakfast till lunch. Absolutely delicious. Seller has been at it for at least 30 years.

  15. the porridge is expensive.

    had a bad case of food poisoning oncve when i ate the duck.

    that shop is a no-go for me, at least, dirty and filthy. Sorry if i threw cold water here.

    better choice would be the other one which serves rojak/wan tan mee etc etc, the one near KFC.

  16. […] Horny claimed that his chicken rice was just alright. As for kerol, she loved her flower crab porridge. Do note tho that the crab porridge is prepared differently from the one at PJ state that I posted. The former is slightly soupy while the the PJ state seafood porridge is more to the mushy side. I prefer the latter though. […]

  17. […] After posting about the seafood porridge at PJ state, there were a few people, including Saygore and Pam who left comments saying that I should check out the Lou Ngap Fan (卤鸭饭), or “loh” duck rice. So we did just that on a Saturday evening. […]

  23. As Suanie Sees It » weekend recap

    […] On Saturday, me and FA went to PJ State to have crab porridge. Naik harga already But still as delicious as ever. Then we went to Bangsar and had the most fun boutique experience of our lives (so far) at People/Egg (next to Blook). The owner/ designer was there and pecked us into trying different kinds of clothes. It was like having a personal stylist, and we did find some stuff that looks good on us. That was why I was late to meet up with G, who was in town for the weekend. Sorry, sorry! […]
