Today we are going to visit Hon Kee Famous Porridge stall that is located at Jalan Hang Lekir. This stall was founded in 1959 and now it is into its third generation of family members carrying on the business. It is located directly in front of Hong Leong Bank Berhad and you can't miss the big signboard. This place looks tiny and cramped but don't worry. Just place your order here and the boss/waiter will lead you to another more spacious area for your dining experience. What is available here:
1. Raw fish (snakehead) porridge or "yee sang" porridge (鱼生粥)
2. Pork offals/innards porridge ((猪杂粥)
3. Minced chicken/pork meat porridge
4. Century egg porridge (皮蛋粥)
I guess you can ask them to mix all of them together in the same bowl of porridge if you wish to try all the ingredients at the same time.
This looks extremely delicious. I just love the smell of the sweet, tasty aroma of sesame oil, ginger, spring onions and coriander. Add some soya sauce and pepper and the porridge will taste great.
Here's a dish of raw snakehead fish slices that looks like Japanese sashimi. It is garnished with shredded ginger, spring onions, coriander from which a dash of sesame oil and soya sauce has been added. Snakehead fish is known as ikan haruan in malay and "sang yee" (生鱼) in chinese.
Just pour the all the ingredients on the plate immediately into the piping hot porridge and the fish will be cooked instantly, its flesh tender and just nice.
