Best Porridge in PJ

Written by Updated ago

A common misconception is that porridge is only meant for the sick. Mind you, that’s only true if you’re speaking of plain porridge which is bland to the taste but easily digestible. Over the years, many have come to realise that congee, or porridge as it is commonly called here, is an amazing soul food. Just like a bowl of chicken soup, it warms you inside out. In Malaysia, there are many different types of porridge to be found; from seafood porridge to pork porridge, the choices are endless. Here on FoodAdvisor.my we have compiled a list of some of the best porridge in town.

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!

    Cili 8Non halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Upon first glance of the special fried porridge at Cili 8, it can be seen that special attention was given to the overall presentation of the dish. The crown of fried keropok that's covered in shark fins is surrounded with a moat of porridge, that has ginger pieces, Chinese crullers and sping onions floating on top. This greatly sets up the mood to dine into this bowl of congee. The flavours in this bowl are very well balanced, with the fried keropok giving just enough saltiness to the slightly bland porridge whil the ginger helps to give it an additional kick. This combinatoin also works well from a textural standpoint, as the crispy fried keropok is mixed together with the softer consistency of the porridge.

    Tips

    Be careful when taking the first bite to avoid a mess

    Things to expect

    The fried keropok will wilt when submerged in the porridge.

    Best with

    You can add more soy sauce or chilli to your bowl for more flavours

    Price

    RM8.90
