Right in the peaceful neighbourhood of Taman Berapit Indah lies an unassuming Ah Ma (Granny in Chinese) who sells chicken porridge. Like our own grandmothers, Ah Ma prepares the dish with real care, love, and skill. This Penang porridge is a great place for a great breakfast!
Penang Porridge with a Dose of Love
The porridge has shredded chicken, garlic strips, and other ingredients for an amazing taste. It’s a delightful Penang treat as the ingredients all blend well together. Probably the most important ingredient is Ah Ma’s special touch in preparing the dish. It has the ability to make you revisit nostalgic times with your own grandparents. The homely feel also helps put you at ease and just enjoy the simple meal. By today’s standards, it is cheap because of its portion. A small bowl costs RM3.50 while the big bowl costs only RM4. In a world where things can become so complex, this is a good reminder that the simple things in life are fulfilling too.
