A Taiwanese Porridge Lunch @ Johor Bahru

A day trip to Johor Baru with 2 of my partners and one of them suggested porridge for lunch. It sounded good for me as I always love porridge. It got to be my thick Teochew blood in me. Teochew Nang always love porridge. A striking big word “Bubur” can be seen up at front of the shop which means porridge in our Malaysia Language.


Apparently there are a few of this porridge outlet “Goh Zha Lang Taiwan Porridge” in Johor Baru, and we found this one at Taman Sentosa.


Fried Pork Intestine – I would prefer the Teochew braised type in lieu of this. It does not have the crispiness for being a fried dish and have a slight negative odour. But the Braised Bean Curd with Gourd in a claypot was delicious with a bit of small dry shrimps in it.
Sweet Potato Porridge was lovely, I have not taken it for a long while and this was definitely gorgeous. Simple yet wonderful in fact I went for a refill and it is F.O.C. for refill.



Long Beans fried with Belacan was simple but gorgeous especially eating it with a bowl of plain porridge.
Chai-Poh Omelette – it was just okay nothing to shout about as the ingredient like the preserved vegetable or known as Chai Poh was insufficient.



Fried Pork Rib in smaller sizes was not that appealing at all. But the Braised Bean Curd with Gourd in a claypot was delicious with a bit of small dry shrimps in it.
