Teow Chew porridge is always one of the de facto comfort food to me, whenever I have a case of bad stomach or running under the weather, this would be my food of choice. Not overpowering, light yet can be flavorful, and best of all, pretty economical.

The teow chew porridge at Sun Fat Kee kopitiam is one of the more traditional establishments, with quite a variety of choices and steaming hot watery porridge every afternoon.

Teow Chew porridge, the ultimate comfort food

For a single person, I usually take a cincaru fish (leather jacket, like at Mum’s place) kembong, luncheon meat (spam), and a piece of tofu. At this stall, everything is done right, the kembong is fried/seared with plenty of chili padi and just enough amount of salt. The texture of the fish and it’s saltiness goes very well with the porridge.

Of course, luncheon is always one of my favorite dishes to go with porridge. They deep fried it with a thin layer of egg batter to add to the meat’s flavor as well. Then there’s the tofu to provide another type of texture from the other two dishes. Nice.

The meal costs less than RM5, healthy (to a certain extend) and guarantee to not upset the stomach. If you’re looking for comfort food, this is the one.

The same kopitiam has one of the better nasi lemak at night, and opposite it there’s the Soo Kee Ipoh kueh teow soup during the day time.

    my father used to say this was poor people’s meal. and now turns out to be so expensive.

    that explains why teo chew people are some of the richest on this planet.

  14. Reminds me that my father used to bring me to Jln Raja Laut for teo chew porridge supper .

  15. aeroplane1234,
    Yeah, just like mamaks!

    Simon Seow,
