Peng Hwa Restaurant (槟华潮州粥)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Chinese Food

This post is dated back to March 2008. We wanted to have something light since we had a heavy lunch that day. We passed by this restaurant which is located strategically on Old Klang Road when we were heading home. Since we haven’t had teow chew porridge for quite some time, we decided to give it a go.


Many tables are arranged outside of the restaurant, perhaps most people prefer to dine outdoor since it might be a little warm inside. 

The counter where you order your dishes. 

They offer a variety of dishes to go with the plain porridge. One of their well-known dishes is the fried minced pork patties which can be seen at the middle left of the photo. Other than that, they are also known for their braised duck and belly pork cooked with mui choy (a type of Chinese preseved vegetable). 

This yam pork belly (芋头扣肉) caught our attention too. However, as we said, we only wanted to have a light dinner. 

Braised ducks. 

On the top left corner is the pork’s ear (RM2.00), it was delicious in a way that it was quite chewy. The fried fish (RM3.00) on the top right corner is quite good as well. It was well salted and the outer layer was rather crispy. Shortly after they served the fish, a cat started approached us and anticipated for food from us. Anyway, the plain porridge cost RM0.80 per bowl and it was perfect to go with many flavourful dishes. 

The Sichuan pickled vegetable (RM1.20) and braised peanuts (RM2.00) went well with the plain porridge. Unfortunately, their pork and lotus root soup (RM4.00) was rather bland without any sense of lotus root.Nevertheless, this restaurant is still an ideal place for teow chew porridge. Price was quite reasonable and service was satisfactory. The restaurant is opened from 11am until 5am in the following morning, so if you’re craving for a nice supper during late night, don’t forget to pay a visit to this restaurant.

J2Kfm, yeah, we would definitely try that out next time.

Big Boys Oven, yeah, it’s nice to have porridge once in a while since it’s light and good for digestion.

Selba, yeah, we were having a hard choice choosing dishes since there were so many choices.

550ml jar of faith, haha, we’re in UK at the moment but this meal was eaten in March 2008. It’s an old post. Yeah, the yam pork belly does seem delicious.

Lingzie, haha, yeah, you could try it out next time. Oh, the peanut soup was delicious? That time when we had it, it wasn’t that good. Guess they’ve improved.

Liang, no worries, soon you’ll be tasting delicious Malaysian food. Just bear with these two weeks and you’ll be free! =)

Ai Wei, yeah, the pork’s ears are quite nice. Okok, no problem! Will bring you to try it out! Haha, seems like there’s a long list of restaurants waiting for us to visit!

Cariso, yeah, pork’s ears are usually chewy and springy. We’ve tried the spicy version in other restaurants, it was quite nice too.

I just have my supper here. The taste of the food is just so so but the price is crazy. One duck’s drumstick is cost us rm14. And we ask why this is so expensive and the reply is they even cut one drumstick but calculate per head. But only 2 of us and we pay rm14 for one duck drumstick. I think this is most expensive drumstick that I ever have in my life for teocheow porridge

Price is unreasonably super expensive. Be careful of being cut throat. 价钱超级不合理的贵。小心被砍菜头!
