I asked Micol for recommendation of supper to buy for take away in Seremban at night and the first thing that came to her mind was mix pork porridge (chee chap chuk)! It was a chilly day as it was raining in the afternoon and I thought, hey that would be a great suggestion, nice and hot comfort food for a cold day.

I was told that the mix pork porridge is so famous that it is usually finished within 2 1/2 hours, so I had to get there before 9pm. I reached there at 8.45pm and when I came to Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Kawan, it was as if they are getting ready to close. Lucky they still have some left and I managed to da bao 3 packets for my trip down to Melaka.

The way they sell the porridge here is different, cooked meat and other parts of pork are being hung on the stall. Once you ordered, they will take it down and cut out the quantity needed. They are then tossed into the cooked porridge and topped with ginger, pepper, spring onions, etc.

Each packet cost me RM 3.50 and the serving is generous. What impressed me most is that the porridge actually taste very very good! The porridge is smooth, you can hardly feel the rice and it very tasty by it own. The mix pork is great to eat with the porridge and each part is well cooked. The fried intestines are very fragrant although its already soft soaking in the porridge.

I must say that this is thumbs up and I now understand why it is so popular. For those going for a try, they are serve chicken that’s sold out when I reach. I think the next time, I would like to sit there and try a hot fresh bowl ;).

PJ: Fried Fish Head & Bak Kut Teh @ Chiew Sang Restaurant

We didn’t know what to eat one afternoon and wanted to try something new and so John says he will take us to this shop his friend took him in SS3, PJ. I had actually passed Chiew Sang many times but thought they only sells bak kut teh.

The moment you walked in to Chiew Sang you will see an Indian guy making the bak kut teh in front, as Brian called it Indian BKT… LOL…

Anyhow, we got a table for 8 and John ordered their famous fried fish head, some clear soup bak kut teh, their stewed bak kut teh, a tofu plus a vege dish.

The fried fish head is very tasty with a good hint of spiciness in it, very appetizing to go with rice. Fish is fresh and we almost cleaned the plate.

I like the clear soup bak kut teh, this is almost the teow chew style, clear but yet tasty and light. The only unfortunate part is that we ordered for 3 and the portion is still relatively small.

The other dish we had is the stewed bak kut teh, this is something new, basically they are very tasty stewed pork, very tender and tasty with the nice and thick stewed sauce.

I enjoyed the lunch here very much but only thing for me is the portion is a little small, so you gotta order a bit more and the price is not that cheap, so be prepared to spend a little more but at least the food here is good :).

Klang: Bak Kut Teh @ Restoran Thong Wei, Pandamaran

We went to Pandamaran, Klang to get Miharu’s City service at a Honda specialist shop here, as we had yet to eat anything for the day, we decided to venture out to shops nearby for a quick makan while waiting for the car to be worked at.

Nearby, hidden at Jalan Sentosa behind some houses and shops is a corner shop, Restoran Thong Wei selling bak kut teh. I asked the mechanic how’s the bkt there and he said, its not bad, can give it a try.

As we are approaching the shop, I noticed that the cook and I assume is the lady boss looks like a Thai lady, maybe she is Thai-Chinese I supposed. Even at the praying altar I do see Thai relevance.

Anyhow, this shop is quite popular and mainly locals, plus the prices are still friend too. If you are alone, you can order a bowl instead, as its cheaper at RM5.80 for small and RM6.80 for big. Otherwise you can go for claypot at RM8.80 per head. Rice is 80 cents for big and 40 cents for small.

We ordered 1 1/2 heads for claypot (small bone with some internal mixed) as there are 2 of us, with a bowl of yoo tiao plus 2 rices. The rice are topped with fried shallots the way I like it.

I would rate the soup as average, this is not the heavy type nor the light type but in between in terms of thickness and taste. But what is really nice is the meat, it looks fatty but when you take it, its quite alright.

The meat are tender as the small bone part always is but not too hard and dry. The skin with its layer of fats looks heavy, but when you actually take it, its smooth and nice to eat (well I did remove the access fats, but there are still quite a bit of the skin).

Surprisingly the bkt here turns out better than I expect and we had a decent brunch thanks to it.
