Hon Kee Porridge 汉记靓粥 @ Damansara Utama

Everytime Chris raised a question on food, he’ll sure be disappointed as I’ve heard of it. Yes, I’m getting ego over my know-hows on food, but when it comes to tasting them, it’s always be pending on the list… Until the memories were disregarded and I will completely forget where to eat next.

Chris being my food dictionary as always, brought me to Hon Kee for breakfast located at Damansara Utama which opened its doors not too long ago. Other outlets are located in Lot 10 and the prominent one in Petaling Street. I am totally not a porridge fan but he is and convincing me that it’ll be exceptionally good, I gave in.
Some highlights of this restaurant:
Hon Kee 汉记靓粥 had established their name for three generations starting from their late grandfather Wong Yu Wah, who managed a congee stall approximately 60 years ago in Petaling Street. It’s their vision to allow each patrons to experience the authenticity of their family’s recipes. The unadulterated original taste was what we were looking forward to everytime we visit a restaurant with so much deep-rooted profile.


We were attracted to their green theme with printed giant newspaper cuttings on their wall which made up their wall of fame, vintage pictures hung neatly and the cute logo!

Hon Kee Porridge


We started our day with the Raw Fish Porridge (RM5.50) where the raw fish slices came in a separate plate topped with spring onions. Add all of them into the piping hot porridge, they are cooked instantly. Not overcooked, we love our fish porridge this way most. Most importantly, their serving of Sang Yu was fresh too.



An additional side order of Pork Meatball (3pcs) for RM1.50 to be added into our smooth porridge was also satisfying. Love the texture of their meatball as they were very different from those conventional pre-packed porkballs.


Chee Cheong Fun with Pork Curry (RM4.90) was something special as we’ve not had our CCF with pork curry before. Love the spiciness of the curry but I personally still enjoy my CCF the traditional way; with just curry broth or sweet sauce and chili with lotsa sesame seeds! hehe.
