Oyster Porridge in Perak Road, Penang

   Posted by: CK Lam   in Hawker, Jelutong, Penang, Porridge

We begin a weekend morning with a warm and filling bowl of oyster porridge, or better known orh moi. I was introduced to this oyster porridge at Perak Road in Jelutong. It is one of the local’s favorite choice of  breakfast. This stall starts selling early in the morning serving breakfast, right till lunch.

Being the only stall in the coffee shop, it draws in quite a crowd with the place packed with customers. Many were seen waiting for their take-away and others busy slurping down their porridge.

The oyster porridge is indeed different, and the flavor was naturally sweet. The porridge with the coarser rice grain texture is boiled with a rich combination of flavors from a variety of ingredients, like mushrooms, dried oyster and pork.

A customized bowl of porridge is topped with strips of braised pork, deep fried shallots, spring onions and the not commonly used, eel flakes.

Apart from porridge, there are many varieties of side dishes for customers to pick and order. We seem to have ordered everything, plates of braised items of pigs’ innards, beancurd, pork, egg, and the pig’s skin.

A bowl of armp (porridge broth) was served together with the porridge. The brownish armp is very light and you can add in a few spoons of it to lighten the porridge or just dip the you tiao (deep-fried crullers) into it.

The cooked eel is shredded into fine flakes. The taste really stands out and its flavor greatly enriches the porridge.

We enjoyed the oyster porridge with its savory flavors. The delicious side dishes were enough to have us piling on with another round of accompaniments.

You can consider checking out this place. The best way is ordering a customized bowl and add-on with the side dishes. It is advisable to go for the earlier session as most of the side dishes would be sold off in the afternoon.

Wow…. eel flakes??? Something new to me, but I know it’s not easy to make those flakes out from eel. Time is always the factor. :)

CK Lam Reply:

Most porridge stalls do not have the eel. So far, this is the only one.
