Delicious Claypot Porridge in Cheras, KL

Rainy evenings are perfect for claypot porridge, the ultimate comfort food for many Asians. At Restaurant Sin Woh Heng in Cheras, they serve smooth, thick porridge with various ingredients such as chicken, pork, eel, frog, fish and lala, which arrives sizzling hot in a claypot.

We love the lean pork porridge (RM7.50) as well as the "sang yu" fish porridge (RM10) here. The amount of pork and fish are pretty generous.  The porridge is smooth and flavorful with hints of ginger. Don't forget to order some Chinese crullers (yau char kwai - RM2) to go with your porridge.

On our second visit, we also ordered the lala in sesame oil and ginger (RM12), which is also cooked and served in a claypot. The lala used here have smaller shells but still meaty and fresh and I loved the gingery sauce it is cooked in. I reckon the sauce would go very well with chicken too... will have to try that next time! Diners can also opt to have their protein of choice cooked kungpo style (it says paprika on the menu but this is what they mean).

For a balanced meal, you can order vegetable dishes (RM5- RM5.50) from the "drinks guy".  The vegetables are simply blanched and served with soy sauce and sesame oil. You choose from choy sum, iceberg lettuce or beansprouts. My favorite is the beansprouts, so crunchy and fat! Delicious :)
