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.

    Oyster porridge, aka Orh Moi is indeed unique and one of a kind. It has a sweeter base flavour, since it is cooked with a variety of ingredients like mushrooms and dried oysters, with texture harsher and grainer. Customers here usually customize their own bowl of porridge with extra toppings; either with strips of braised pork, deep-fried shallots, spring onions and/or eel flakes. Of course, there are many side dishes provided to order that can go along with the porridge, such as 'you tiao', herbal eggs, beancurd or pork innards.

    A bowl of porridge broth is served together with the porridge, great to dip some 'you tiao' in.

    Things to expect

    Unique oyster porridge with cooked eel flakes. Weird, but definitely an adventurous treat.
