Before Chinese New Year, I had the opportunity to try out one of the fast growing food chains around town, Hon Kee Porridge in Kepong. Notably, this chain started from one of the popular stalls in Petaling Street.

Hon Kee Porridge is one name which is synonymous with good porridge especially the raw fish porridge. Besides the original stall in Petaling Street, I had the chance to try it out in one of their first franchises in Damansara Uptown. At that time, I did not bring my cam so I didn't posted any review. My wife and I had a bowl of raw fish porridge which we shared and it brought back memories of when I had my first taste in Petaling Street..

Anyway, here's a bit of history on Hon Kee's origins (source : http://www.wikistreetfood.com/Franchise:Hon_Kee_Porridge).

- Hon Kee Porridge has been serving its famous porridge since 1949
- The Hon Kee name spans three generations starting from their late grandfather Wong Yu Wah

Well, that's a bit of history. 1949 till today 2011 . .that's a span of 62 years .. and I am sure it has garnered a lot of fans over the years..
Now, with the openings of its franchise outlets around town, it has spanned a following of foodsters who are porridge aficionados.

Prices are typical of such franchises, ranging from RM 5 upwards for a single big bowl of porridge. Here are some photos from the various items we ate :



Deep fried
pork intestines


Century Egg Porridge

Yow Char Koay stall

Overall, food was fair and there was a variety of items to be chosen. One of the interesting things is the stall outside selling yow char koay and other snacks.

Restaurant 9888 - Cheras

Published Date Written by Jason Loo

This food review is of a lunch I had with my in-laws in one of the restaurants in Cheras before Chinese New Year. The restaurant is named 9888. Honestly, my wife found and picked this place after searching for a new food location in Cheras.


The restaurant is actually quite hidden along the Jalan Cheras road (after Jaya Jusco Maluri). To find it just head along the road to Cheras from town and you will see a DAP Rocket signboard (which has been there for ages). Right before that signboard will be a left turn into a road that leads to the restaurant. Take  the first right turning and you should see it. take note that the road is a dead end and parking could be quite scarce at night. It is advisable to go there early and avoid the parking fiasco.

Below are some of the picture shots I took of the food we had

1. Deer ribs


2. Veges


3. Claypot Pork knuckles


4. Assam fish


5. Salted egg deep-fried prawns




 I think we wanted to order the Kam Heong la-la but it wasn't in stock. However, most of the food we ordered were tastefully great and one particular dish deserved a commendation. This was the salted egg prawns which were quite large prawns cooked to almost perfection. The memory of it makes me wanna go to try other dishes again.
