PP reminded me of my blogging duty once again. Owing to the guilt for being so lazy, I’ll post his favorite breakfast porridge at damansara utama. This shop don’t only serve very nice porridge, they serve good coffee too. Another tidbit being served that you can eat together with your coffee is their fried yu tiao and ham chin peng. The ham chin peng has sweet smooth red bean filling.
Hon Kee had established their name for three generations starting from their late grandfather Wong Yu Wah, who managed a congee stall approximately 60 years ago in Petaling Street. It’s their vision to allow each patrons to experience the authenticity of their family’s recipes. The unadulterated original taste was what we were looking forward to everytime we visit a restaurant with so much deep-rooted profile.
This shop is very famous for their raw fish porridge. It is also one of hub’s favorite porridge. It is served with thin slices of fresh fish meat slightly coated with sesame oil, and topped with small strips of ginger. Mix the slices of fish meat in to the porridge and you’ll see it cooked immediately. They have a few more varieties of porridge such as the pix intestines, minced meat with salted egg, century egg, hong kong style porridge and many more.
As for me, I am not a big fan of gooey porridge. I favor more on the teo chew type where you can still see all the rice grains. So my favorite from this shop is their nasi lemak. They serve their nasi lemak with pork curry. You might not be able to get pork curry at anywhere except for the SS2′s pasar pagi. Nasi lemak tastes only moderate. Rice is not fragrant enough and there isn’t any sambal ikan bilis to eat with. You can definitely get better nasi lemak elsewhere.
