If I tell you that Ang Leong Chicken Porridge (榮隆海南鸡饭) is selling the best chicken porridge in Penang! Do you believe it, able to find it, and then try it? Well, it is not hard to find it as it is located in famous place in Pulau Tikus call Bee Hooi Restaurant. It is a van cart stall that parked in front of Bee Hooi Restaurant (美園餐室) as shown below.
They only sell the chicken porridge and Hainanese chicken rice during dinner time. There are lot of variety in the Bee Hooi restaurant, you can choose other choices in the hawker center. In today post, I will share you my experience with Ang Leong Chicken porridge.
Ang Leong Chicken Porridge Environment
I always craving for porridge when I am sick. I hunted Tai Buan Porridge for lunch, and now I hunt for Ang Leong Chicken porridge for dinner. Please don’t get me wrong, you can always enjoy the chicken porridge any time you like.
The van cart is managed by 2 people, the female owner manages the Hainanese chicken rice and the male owner manages the chicken porridge.
The cart is well organized but you will observe that the hygiene is typical hawker center grade. They prepared the food using their bare hand. Some time, you will need to compromise and balance the hygiene vs. the food taste. To be honest, Ang Leong Chicken porridge is super good.
Does Ang Leong Chicken Porridge taste good?
I have ordered the big size of the chicken porridge and here is how it looks like.
Let look at the size of the bowl! It is real big and it is nearly 40% of the width of the table. Hey, this is not a joke, the size is really big but I can finish it by myself alone. That why I get a big tummy after the dinner.
If I remember correctly, the price of the porridge is ~ RM6 to RM6.50. I would consider this as cheap due to it size and the ingredient it used.
The plain porridge is being topped with lot of chicken meat and fried garlic. The fried garlic is really crunchy and the chicken meat is really sweet. It also comes along with some fresh lettuce, fried fritters (炸油條) and some fish sauce.
When you start to mix them all together, you will able to enjoy the chicken meat in every scoop of the porridge (there is really a lot of chicken slide inside !). On and off, you may bite on the fried garlic and this really enlightens your taste with some crunchy and tasty bite of garlic. I don’t have any hesitation to recommend you to try it if you are visiting Bee Hooi restaurant during dinner.
Will I come again?
Yes, I will. The taste is good and I highly recommend you to try it.
