We begin a weekend morning with a warm and filling bowl of oyster porridge, or better known orh moi at the oyster porridge stall in Perak Road, Jelutong. Penang. It is one of the local’s favorite choice of breakfast. The stall starts selling early in the morning serving breakfast, right till lunch hour.
Being the only stall in the coffee shop, it draws in quite a crowd, with the place packed with customers. Many are seen waiting for their take-aways while others are busy slurping down their porridge.
Huge pot of oyster porridge
The oyster porridge is indeed different, and the flavor is naturally sweet. The porridge with coarser grain texture is boiled with a rich combination of flavors using a variety of ingredients, like mushrooms, dried oysters and pork.
A customized bowl of porridge is topped with strips of braised pork, deep- fried shallots, spring onions and eel flakes.
Apart from porridge, there are many varieties of side dishes for customers to pick and order. We ordered several plates of braised pigs’ innards, beancurd, pork, egg, and pig’s skin.
We absolutely loved the smooth texture pig skin
The meat and the intestines are braised with soy sauce till tender, with hint of sweetness and saltiness.
A bowl of armp (porridge broth) is 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 some deep-fried you tiao (crullers) into it.
The cooked eel is shredded into fine flakes. The taste really stands out and greatly enhanced the porridge.
We enjoyed the oyster porridge and we piled on another round of accompaniments.
