Crab Porridge @ Nibong Tebal, Penang

It seems that there is a bit of hoo-ha as to the originality of crab porridge in Nibong Tebal but we are not that concerned for that moment we just wanted good food before we continue our journey back home. N.T. Cheang Kee seems a good place to eat crab porridge.

Our first order was the “Too Boo Sui” @ poached baby octopus. I like it very much & to be eaten with the peanut topping chilli sauce. Look at those juicy & succulent tentacles….yummy yummy.

Teow Chew Nang eating Teow Chew steamed Pomfret fish. It was a big fish, the gravy was so sweet & tasty and the gravy went dry before the empty plate was taken away.

Fried Prawns were also gorgeous, juicy & fresh. I don’t have to peel the shell because they were so crispy and nice to chew. Drool drool ……

Tofu fried with seafood & meat was a normal dish but a good balancing dish.

Fried “Boi Leng” veggie (sounds like dragon tail) with black dried fungus (Mok Nee) was an interesting dish.

A German Pork Knuckle nearly knocks off everyone on the table, suddenly we were afraid of food it seems huge. A crispy meat with hidden onion pickles found underneath the knuckle was part packed back to Kuala Lumpur.

Fried La La clams were  fresh and delicious.

Finally the highlight of this place …. introducing the great Crab Porridge prepared by the Teow Chew nang of Nibong Tebal. Very very good.

Everyone gets their equal share of the delicacy. Look at the fresh crabs with red roe in the porridge too… ain’t it attractive… wait till you taste it.

All uncles & aunties have forgotten the danger of uric acid during such food adventure like this. Eat first think later……. New Year is approaching maybe we will draw out a good resolution for ourselves…. HapPy hAppy NeW YeaR.
