Cintra Street which starts after the junction of Kimberley Street leading all the way towards Chulia Street has numerous hawker food stalls and old sytle Chinese restaurants. Most of the food along this street is simply irresistible as they have been operating for a long time. In fact I did a Cintra Street food crawl review one year ago covering most of the food stalls along this street except missing out on this Yee Sang Kai Chok (fish/chicken porridge).
Steaming hot thick porridge
Many locals are quite familiar with this roadside stall operating directly opposite the Cintra Food Corner selling Bak Chang (dumpling). The stall is easily spotted right in front of Sin Sun Vood coffee shop. For many years the lady owner has been serving Chicken Porridge (Kai Chok) and Fish Porridge (Yue Chok) together with her famous Steam Chicken (Bak Jiam Kai).
The steamy soothing bowl of porridge was topped with ginger strips, lettuce, spring onions and pieces of deep fried crullers – yau char kwai. The texture of the porridge was thick enough for my liking. It’s very flavorful and tasted great with a must have dash of white pepper.
Additional bowl of yau char kwai
A simple tasty dish of chicken is indeed a wonderful addition to the porridge. Most tables have this add on. The chicken is really smooth and I really enjoyed it with extra ginger strips. However the accompanied chili sauce is just very ordinary.
Customers will pack into this popular stall in the night starting from 8pm. I remember watching her setting up her stall early in the evening when I was having my chu char dinner from the neighboring restaurant, Sun Yoon Kee Restaurant.
Freshly sliced pieces of fish
Besides the chicken porridge, I also had the Yee Sang Kai Chok, which was a mixture of chicken with fish slices. Some find this mixing tastier with a bowl costing RM4. The whole piece of chicken drumstick cost RM8.
