The Lee family has been selling “chee cheong chok” (pig’s intestines porridge) at Cintra Street for over 70 years. The eatery has now been relocated to Kimberley Street. Run by the 3rd-generation of the Lee family these days, I come here for my “chee cheong chok” fix, ever since one of the uncles who run the “chee cheong chok” stall at the corner of New Lane and MacAlister Road, has decided to call it quits 6 months ago after six decades in business.
Various ingredients go into this hyper-delicious breakfast dish: “char-siew” (Chinese BBQ pork) and various types of offal - pig’s kidney, large intestines, small intestines, pig’s blood jelly, etc. My favourite is the roasted, crispy small intestines - indispensable in order to add an additional textural dimension to the overall dish.
Savoury rice porridge will be poured over the whole concoction. Best breakfast ever!
The eatery’s new location is at the intersection of Kimberley Street and Kuala Kangsar Road.
Opening hours: 11am - 3pm on weekdays, 8.30am till 12 noon on Sat & Sun.
