One of my favourite place to eat porridge. They offer plain traditional chinese porridge. We can have either chicken stew or chicken grilled as the side dishes. They also offer different kind of eggs and tofu They also have their special shrimp stir fried. And some veggie dish.

You can enjoy delicious chicken congee with different side menu along with it. I usually ordered a whole chicken and eggs (telor pitan) as side menu. Sometimes the restaurant was a bit dirty and unorganized at pick hour. You better order first before you get your table.

Great taste with local ambiance. It's value money when you order chicken porridge, even more when you do takeout. They serve generous amount of shredded chicken in the one serving bowl of chicken porridge with cakwe (Chinese doughnut) as side dish.

The Restaurant is located in Central Jakarta near Chinatown and it's famous for its Medanese style chicken Rice Congee. I have to say it's one of the most tasty Congee I've ever eaten. The place is very simple - people come here to eat and leave very soon after they have finished. You will get a very good value for... More

This place's not the fancy restaurant. It's crowded and it's hot somehow.. But wait, the porridge is so delicious!!! You can have fish porridge or the original one. They are so generous on giving the topping like chicken, cilantro, ginger, egg, spring onion, cakweh (bread-stick), sesame oil, etc. The eggs can be salted, raw or pitan (1000-year style). It's very... More
