The last time I blogged about pork intestine porridge was over 4 years ago on a hawker stall in Penang. It has always been one of my favorite old school hawker foods, but also one that is increasingly hard to find.

My first time at this small stretch of old school hawker center at Jalan Sayur in Pudu was a couple months ago, and while I had other food at the time, I noticed this porridge stall that offers pork intestine porridge, among other types.

So when pocket Anne asked me out for a little dinner + catch up session in KL, I suggested to head to the very same place just so that I can have my pork intestine porridge.

This particular porridge stall is situated quite close to Jalan Pudu itself, they offer fish ball, salted egg, chicken, fish filet, seafood, and of course, the all important pork intestine porridge (猪什粥).

pork intestine porridge, and chee cheong fun

This bowl of goodness comes with deep fried pork innards, plenty of shredded ginger, some spring onion, and a good shake of white pepper with porridge cooked to perfection.

Compared to the one at New Lane in Penang, this one is less crunchy and has a slightly fresher taste mainly due to the ginger. Both of them are excellent nonetheless, and I am sure someone like Kim who loves intestine from Teow Chew porridge would love it too.

Anne also ordered the pretty famous chee cheong fun from another stall, one with the normal sauce, and the other with curry. Plain chee cheong fun with sesame on top and some proper sauce can be very addictive too, not to mention pretty economical. Our dinner came to only about RM 10 for two person, who said dinner at KL must be pricey?

  14. Andy Hayes | Sharing Travel Experiences

    Sounds gross, but I’d try it – yum yum. Do you put any sauce on it, like hot sauce or soy sauce?

  15. JD,
    Yesss you are absolutely right! Yaa got the taufu bakar too!

    Andy Hayes,
    No need sauce, it’s very good already. 😉

  19. superwilson,

    Huai Bin,
    Hahaha yeah, innards = yums!

    do it do it!

  20. PocketAnne

    Yeah they had a lot of food but just the 2 of us so we didn’t order much. The queue for the fried chicken was unbearable to look as people queue up non stop.

    Sadly after this dinner, KY went for 2nd round of dinner/supper cuz he was hungry by 10PM. And he had porridge, again hahaha

  21. thumbs up for the pork intestine porridge in New Lane Penang!!! I was hooked immediately when I ate it last year I went to Penang…
    About the Jalan Sayur, I have yet to try.. hopefully it is as good as you describe. I have only tried the famous fried chicken there but it was a long time ago!

  22. PocketAnne,
    Hahahha yah la digested very fast ok!

    They’re slightly different but I like both versions 😉

  23. I think this is the same place we visited one January evening.The food was no doubt very good but the whole place was a dump.Literally with a garbage dump just next to it and huge rats running all over the place.

  24. dyson17,
    yeah, classic old school hawker center, if there’re no rats, the food is no good. lol

  25. The fried chicken is a must try also …

  26. Earl Ku,
    Will do that next time!

  27. Thanks so much for recommending this porridge! Been searching high and low for it for years. Can’t find it back in Bukit Mertajam anymore each time I go back. 🙁

    Fortunately, my craving for it has been satiated last night. Love the innards, love the porridge, love the old school place!

  28. gracieq,
    You’re welcome! BM don’t have but Penang island still got lo 😀
