Last time, I organize 1st Hungry Ghost food gathering. The reason is, I would like to met up with some of the blogger and it should be fun if blogger can have some gathering for little chat & share an experience. At the end, 4 blogger has turn up.

Why I choose this place, I pass by this restaurant every time I went back from work. Looks nice from outside & a lot of good review about it in internet. The delicious Honkee Porridge is a legacy that has been passed down from one generation to another.

The Hon Kee name spans three generations starting from our late grandfather Wong Yu Wah, who got the congee stall going 60 years ago in Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur. Each time a bowl is brought to the table, the goal is for the diner to experience the authenticity of our family's recipes.

The cosy interior XD
It's very easy to spot this restaurant since it's obviously can been spotted from outside with their huge cartoon picture on the wall + with the green color as their theme.

I was be informed that they've also recently opened a stall in at Lot10's Hutong food hall. Eric and Herbet is the one who managed these two new outlets and their sister runs the original stall in Jalan Hang Lekir.

I never post any porridge in my blog because I tried to find the best porridge. Now I found it!
Time to have my breakfast after I didn't take any dinner the night before... Damn hungry wei ^oo^

Raw/ Cooked Fish Sliced Porridge @ RM5.50.
It's depends how you handle it. If you just put on the top of it and straight eat, it will be raw lor... We choose to mix it a while with the porridge and cook it a little bit XD Too many sashimi I had this month d...

Snakehead Fish (Ikan Haruan)
They used a fresh fish which is fresh from the supplier every morning and that's the reason how they can maintain the freshness of the fish and also served the best ingredient to the customer.
The sliced of fish is not too thin and not too thick.

The porridge is smooth and what else is the perfect brunch if not a bowl of porridge? As the porridge is cook on slow heat thus its texture is superbly smooth and nice.

The raw fish slices (Wan Yue in Chinese) is always served with a dash of sesame oil and lots of shredded ginger, spring onion and coriander. It's not complete without a plate of sliced yau char kuai (Chinese crullers) The porridge? It's smooth texture and that's what we call... Porridge

Mix & Match @ RM6.50 (Combination Century Egg & Shredded Chickens)
Century egg is one of my favorite ^oo^ I'm glad that they have mix & match which is I can try the chicken and egg XD The century flavor is quite strong if want compare with other stall that sell century egg such as Bukit Cina Satay Celup @ Malacca.
The shredded chicken is fine for me since it's not too thin. So I can bite, bite and bite the chicken meat... I love bite XP

Chee Cheong Fun with Pork Curry @ RM4.90
No idea since I didn't try it =.="

Honkee Porridge was cooperate with Chinese Snacks operator from Petaling Street to their Damansara Utama (Uptown) outlet. Since 1953, they sells an array of fried Chinese pastries such as Yau Cha Kwai (Chinese crullers nice to eat together with porridge) and Ham Chim Peng.
On that day, all of us had opportunity to try all their dish for free! Customers will get fresh you tiao that would go perfectly with a steaming bowl of Honkee Famous Porridge!!!

Yau Cha Kwai/ You Tiao (Chinese crullers nice to eat together with porridge) @ RM1.00
This You Tiao is a long, golden-brown, deep fried strip of dough in Chinese cuisine and other East and Southeast Asian cuisines and is usually eaten for breakfast. For me, personally I like to dip inside porridge. It's not too salty & too oily.

Ham Chim Peng (plain and with red bean) @ RM1.00

_MG_7028
Ham Chim Peng (the glutinous rice) @ RM1.00

Actually, it's a type of salted pan cake or Chinese deep fried bun like pastry. It is a popular street food. It is round shape. The Ham Chim Peng may comes in 3 types, the normal (salted), the red bean filling (tau sar) and the glutinous rice (chu bee).

Lo Pak Kao (carrot cake) @ RM1.00
Not much to talked about it. For me is just ordinary. Outside crispy and inside soft XD
Worth to try!

_MG_7029
Siew Hou Jou @ RM1.80
The dough a little bit hard but Rebeca love it. It will be nice if you mix with the sugar.

_MG_7052
Top Right... Milo Iced (RM2.50) & White Coffee (RM2.50)
Bottom Right... Chinese Tea (RM0.80) & Soya Bean (RM2.50)
For the Soya Bean, Rebeca have a fresh soya which is home-made and not from the can or bottle that normally sold outside.
