28.06.14 : Zhou Porridge Restaurant, Butterworth

Are you a fan of porridge? - Maybe you are not, but I AM! Is not easy to look for a porridge stall or gerai bubur nowadays, not to mention porridge restaurant if you are craving for it once in a while. Hard-To-Find-Porridge no longer a subject for Penang Mainland folks as now we have Zhou Porridge Restaurant (Non-Halal though) that serve various types of porridge. As most of you who can read Mandarin would have noticed, 粥杰伦 (Zhou Restaurant) and 周杰伦 (Famous Taiwanese Singer - Jay Chou) are quite similar right? (Sadly, I cannot read Mandarin, dont't laugh I am just comparing the patterns one-by-one). We got to know that the owner of this restaurant is also a Jay Chou fan (maybe a hardcore one), so it is not a surprise they play Jay Chou's songs all day long while you dine there.



We decided to give a try on the 'Minced Fish and Egg Congee in Tom-Yam-Flavoured Porridge'. Yes, you can choose which porridge base that you like [Tom-Yam, Curry, Hoi-Wong (I am not sure what is this) or Herbs]. The price is RM 7.80 for Small and RM 10.80 for Large. We ordered small and enough for 2 persons if you're not a big-eater, else go ahead for the large option. 


Apart from Porridge, Zhou Porridge Restaurant also serve Noodle (of course la, takkan only porridge meh?). We ordered Dry BBQ-Pork Noodle (Char-Siew with taste-a-like Wan Tan Mee) - RM 6.90. Quite good but the sauce is a little sweet, maybe too much of BBQ sauce.



Besides, we also ordered Seafood Tomyam Soup Noodle (What's in it? - Tom Yam Soup, Instant Noodle, Fried Fish Meats, Meat Balls, Prawns, Squids, Enoki Mushrooms a.k.a Kam Zham Ku and Vegetables) for RM 12.80. From the menu, you can choose either Bee Hoon, Instant Noodle or Rice, up to your preference. We picked Instant Noodle and we did not regret, the soup is good too although is a little spicy. Not to forget, you can also request for warm water and is Free-of-Charge.



Best of all, this restaurant does not take any day-off, it opens daily from 11a.m till 11p.m with no additional service charges or government tax, cool right?

  11. Did you notice that the restaurant is blasting Jay Chou's songs continuously? I wonder whether the operator will land into copyright infringement lawsuits? :-)
