Poon choi or Big Bowl Feast is an indulgent affair with layers of ingredients in fragrant gravy. It is believed that this traditional dish originated in China, and the name of the dish came from the distinctive basin-like pot in which it was cooked and served.

There are only a handful of places serving this dish in Penang and one of them is Zi Zai Restaurant. Our group of 13 made our way to the restaurant  in Paya Terubong to try its traditional poon choi.

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.
