Hon Kee Famous Porridge 汉记靓粥 @ Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Located at Jalan Hang Lekir, within Chinatown or 茨厂街. An old establishment that has been around since 1949. Various signages are hung near the stall front, and that serve as menu as well as advertisement of who's who that had tried its porridge.There's a picture of Mr Chua Lam (蔡澜), a renowned food critic. This porridge brand has even made it to Lot 10 Hutong in Guangzhou!

So, my sis did the ordering while we relax and sat at the table outside of Hong Leong bank, behind the Mata Kuching stall. This was our second breakfast stop for our Petaling Street walkabout, with the first one being Lai Foong Beef Noodles at Jalan Tun H.S Lee.

The stall helper will bring the porridge to your table. The practice here is cash on delivery.

fresh raw fish slices (@RM10)

There were only two sizes of raw fish that day, large or extra large. But I'd gladly put down RM10 for this plate of beauty.

Since clean comfortable washroom is of top concern (well, at least to me!), I opted to enjoy the fish by dipping it into the hot porridge. Fresh and mildly sweet.

Porridge was smooth and has very clean flavour. Tasted like it was simply salted. Hence, a dash or two of soy sauce is essential. The crispy intestine was enjoyable as well as the other thinly slices parts such as tongue and meat. Maybe because porridge flavour itself was non-heavy nor was it full-bodied, then that allowed the flavour of the raw fish slices to shine through.
