This four decade-old spot in a back alley off Jalan Sultan in KL’s Chinatown is unmissable. Its seating are rickety tables set up haphazardly along the sidewalks. Come early evening, and KL Chinatown’s denizens (those in-the-know) converge upon this perhaps last Teochew porridge spot which still offers an authentic spread of traditional Teochew home-cooked dishes.
The Chow Brothers who run the place are friendly and extremely loquacious - they are Teochew, but through to their KL pedigree, banter in Cantonese with KL’s largely Cantonese-Chinese populace who form their main clientele. They are very entertaining, provided you’re a Cantonese speaker. But they get by with rudimentary English as well, so language is certainly not a barrier here.
Incredible choice of hot, freshly-cooked dishes to order to accompany your bowl of steamed white rice or porridge.
