Best Porridge in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Today’s porridge dish seems to have evolved from its infamous predecessor. Back then when we think of porridge, we think of it as staple food for the sick (more like we’re being pressured by our mums to take them). However, today the ingredients and the method of serving have changed and we see people in perfect health indulging in this meal at stalls. There are various taste and forms of porridge, ranging from the standard shredded chicken to something fancy like scallops and crabs. Regardless of which, we can safely say that a bowl of porridge will always be a form of comfort food and sometimes, somewhat a luxury.

    Cintra Street Chicken & Fish PorridgePork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    This popular stall is recognised for many years, operated by the same lady who has been preparing and cooking the porridge since like forever. She serves the famous Chicken Porridge (Kai Chok), Fish Porridge (Yue Chok) along with the popular steam chicken (Bak Jiam Kai). Topped with ginger strips, spring onions and several pieces of deep fried crullers, it's an enjoyable hot treat especially during a cold day.

    It's located in front of Sin Sun Vood Coffeeshop.
