Hon Kee Porridge - Damansara Utama (Uptown)

Tried the Damansara Utama (known as uptown) Hon Kee Porridge outlet today which was organized by this food blogger name FeeQ.



It has this cute logo with an auntie smiling at you.
Although this shop outlet that I visited is quite new, yet there is quite a history to it.

The original shop was set up in Petaling Street at KL during 1949 as you can see in the logo and now, 60 years later, the 3rd generation carried on their family's recipe in bringing the same kind of deliciousness to it's porridge.

This are some of the items we had:



I simply adore this Chee Cheong Fun with Pork Curry. I can't remember tasting such delicious Chee Cheong Fun during my time in KL/PJ.
This makes me miss the old days of eating delicious Chee Cheong Fun back when I was still living in Ipoh. The seller would come around in a trishaw and I've got to say, it was truly a magnificent dish from a person peddling by cycling a trishaw around!
Still, I would say this is one of the most delicious curry chee cheong fun I've tasted.

Also along with this, we grabbed some Chinese pastries to try out as well.



Here's some ham chim peng with one being plain while the other has red bean filling in it.



On the left, there are some ma kiok with kap jung at the bottom (kap jung is like ham chim peng but with glutinous rice as filling in the middle) while the yau char kuey is being stolen away by some hungry fellow. Oi, wait till I've grabbed some lah.



A shot of the loh bak kou.
And one more dish of Chinese pastries:



The one that has the powdery sugar substance on top is called sa yung while the other Chinese pastry is called siew hou jou.
See how hungry those people are. They fast fast transport it over to their side to munch on these.

By the way, these Chinese pastries are from the Kong Har Siu Hou Jou which also originates from Petaling Street since 1953. And now it's also available in this Hon Kee Porridge establishment Uptown outlet.



See how happy the auntie was when we were gobbling up her famous Chinese pastries.

And for the main course, we opted for the Porridge with raw fish which is what Hon Kee porridge is famous for.



Add in and mix it up :D



Another porridge that we tried was a combination of Century Eggs and shredded chicken together.



Thanks Mr. Eric for this lovely opportunity. XD

Besides this Uptown outlet and the Petaling Street outlet, Hon Kee Porridge also has one outlet at Lot 10, Hutong.
The concept over there is food court style. There contains many other food stalls as well.

As for this Uptown outlet, it's opened from 7am till 10pm daily.



The address is as per below:
No 71, Jalan SS21/1A,
Damansara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya.

Same row as the TMPoint Uptown branch behind the Starbucks row.

It's not exactly seafood, the main thing is the porridge or also known as congee.

Glad they're moving up the commercialization route.
The original outlet is great, very authentic, and one feels like eating by the roadside, just like those days.
