The Hon Kee Porridge Hawker Stall is tucked away amid the sea of stalls in the Petaling Market in Kuala Lumpur. Look for the 'Famous Hon Kee Porridge" sign then push between the stalls to find a seat at one of the tiny tables. You will be given a blue plastic bowl of the most beautiful rice congee and a flat plate of slices of raw fish garnished with a mound of spring onion and fresh ginger and a sprinkling of fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves. It was delicious with that creamy texture that only comes from long, slow, careful cooking of the rice.
This tiny place was recommended to us by our friends Shewie who writes on e-gullet and boo-licious who is the mastermind behind the wonderful Masak-Masak blog that surveys a wide range of food outlets in KL.
We were not disappointed with the quality of the food here. We have eaten congee in the four corners of the globe and this was right up there with the best. It is certainly a place we would return to on every visit to this wonderful food city.
