Hon Kee Porridge, Damansara Utama

Been ages since I met Jo, and when we decided to meet for a meal, light dinner in PJ sounds doable, and Hon Kee seemed like good place for this.
We ordered the sliced fish porridge and pork ribs&oysters porridge to share..
The porridge was served piping hot, especially for the fish slices- we opt to let it 'cook' in the porridge rather than having it sashimi style..
Hon Kee's version of porridge is the smooth, non grainy type. Hong Kong style congee. Though it was rather velvety, I cant but help to notice some starchiness after a few mouthfuls. Maybe they added some constarch to thicken this porridge? The fish was fresh and blends in well with the porridge.
The pork ribs and oysters on the other hand came heaped with ingredients..
I was rather surprised to see 5-6 big chunks of ribs/ meat and a couple of oysters. The porridge tasted rather plain, which I presume the ingredients were cooked separately and added into the porridge before serving. Though the pork ribs were boiled until it's meltingly tender, the flavour and sweetness of the meat was retained.
Some compulsory yau zhar guai for my porridge..
If it was crunchy, would have enhanced my porridge experience. Nonetheless, soaking the YZG into the porridge is still a lovely treat that can easily please me.
Maybe QC is harder to maintain at branches? Felt that the original branch fared way better.

Hon Kee is located at No 71, Jalan SS21/1A, Damansara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya.
