Pork porridge

Pork Porridge – Old Town, Petaling Jaya

G-jap-jok (猪杂粥) or pork porridge is a traditional Chinese delicacy. There is a good one in Old Town Petaling Jaya. The place doesn’t have a name, so I’ll provide an address: Pusat Penjaja Seksyen 1/12 Selara Jati, Petaling Jaya.
This porridge stall started out in the 1960s at the Old Town bus station, and was run by 2 brothers. They then shifted to their current location during the 80s. These days, the stall is managed by the younger brother along with his wife and son.

The main ingredients of the porridge include pig intestines, tongues, blood cubes, elbows and stomachs. I would say the most important ingredients are the fried intestines and boiled tongues, not just for the great taste, but also from the pleasure you get just from munching on them. The porridge stock is smooth and tasty as well, beautifully cooked with steamed fish slices. Cost is RM2.30 per bowl.

Besides porridge, the stall also offers a salted vegetable soup that is cooked with pig intestines and other ingredients. This soup goes brilliantly with white rice, and costs RM2.50 per bowl.

If you’re not a big fan of pig intestines, the gingery hard boiled chicken, which costs RM2.50, is not a bad choice either.

As tasty as the food is, it is also very economical to have a meal there. I will rate the place 8.5/10.

    OMG! OMG! Is it still there?? I remember eating at this pork porridge stall where the old bus station was. I was only about 8 or 9 years old then (and I am past 40 now!) Later, the stall moved to some hawker centre and then my parents stopped going.
