You know, when it comes to Penang food, most of what people recognize will be from the island – char kuih teow, laksa, prawn mee, curry mee, and such. However, the bigger, less glamorous landmass  Penang government “rent” from Kedah does in fact offers a few gems of its own when it comes to hawker food – one of which is the topic for today – yam rice with pork offal soup.

While my favorite version in Penang is from Chip Heng kopitiam at Chai Leng Park, Butterworth, I was recently introduced to a stall offering something pretty much equally as good right here at Klang Valley, at Ara Damansara’s Tien Tien Lai kopitiam.

This particular yam rice stall is in fact introduced to me by my mom’s friend (who is also from Penang). A bowl of soup goes for RM 8 and comes with plenty of ingredients you’d expect in this dish – including pork ball, pork slices, tongue, intestine, coagulated blood, tofu, salted vege, and parsley. You’ll then get to choose to have it with yam rice (RM 2), or white rice (RM 1), and if you ask me, there’s no question the former is the version to go for.

The yam rice itself is properly flavored with good aroma from yam, and the soup is packed with porky goodness properly balanced with the saltiness & slight acidity offered by salted vegetable. Grab a piece and dip in the homemade chili sauce with dark soya sauce, then mix it up with a spoon full of yam rice, put it in your mouth, and follow up with a spoon full of soup… yums!

If you want some proper yam rice with pork soup without having to travel up to Penang, this is one to check out.

Discuss : KY eats – Yam Rice with Pork Offal Soup, Ara Damansara

  1. This makes me hungry already. We do have one good one in Melaka. 🙂

  2. One thing I MUST try when I get to see any, yam rice – none here. The soup looks awesome – I love it cooked that way!

    • suituapui: Ah that’s unfortunately, luckily it’s not a difficult dish to make other than the rice..

  3. I know the one of the stalls in food court in Publika served this, but not sure if it still there, as I tried that many years back.

  4. You can keep the offal but I don’t mind having the yam rice.

  5. Pork offal with salted vegetable is my husband’s favourite soup. We used to get our fix from Restoran Queen’s in Jalan Peel. We usually get this served with plain rice though yam rice sounds way better.
