We stopped by here…

Choon Seng Coffee Shop, Sg Merah

…at the junction of this road and its adjacent lane…

Road signs

…after the church service on Sunday morning because my girl wanted the porridge (RM4.00)…

Choon Seng meat porridge

…which I would say is my favourite in town. Yes, she did try it before and it was very much to her liking as well except that she would not touch the three bits of intestines…


…and the two thin slices of liver in the porridge so of course, I helped myself to those.

I had their kampua mee (RM3.00)…

…that my cousins liked a lot when they were in town. I would agree it was nice but there are some elsewhere that I feel have an edge over the one here.

I also ordered their mixed soup or what they call chap chap th’ng (RM5.00) but I forgot to take a photograph of it. Somehow, it just slipped my mind at the time but there were liver, intestines, minced meat and tofu puffs plus some of the curly green vegetables in the lovely clear soup that my girl enjoyed very much as well. Of course, other than one slice of the tofu puffs, she left everything in the soup to me – she is not a very big eater but even so, she did finish her bowl of porridge.

The mum ordered the Foochow fried noodles (RM4.00)…

…from the chu char (cook & fry) place at the back of the coffee shop but she did not think it was all that great, no wok hei fragrance. She loved the fried kway teow from the Muslim stall at this coffee shop – I don’t know why she did not order that. Maybe she couldn’t remember as just like me, age is catching up with her as well and her memory isn’t all that good anymore.

Needless to say, I had their to-die-for coffee but for reasons unknown, it wasn’t anything to get excited about that morning. I didn’t see the boss around so perhaps that was why – it seems that he is the only one here who can come out with the perfect brew.

CHOON SENG COFFEE SHOP /春陞茶室 (2.324218, 111.838197) is located along Lorong Wong Ting Hock 1, off Jalan Wong Ting Hock, off Jalan Tun Abg Hj Openg at the Sungai Merah Bazaar here.

  1. See the porridge makes me feel like having porridge today…

    Go ahead! For one thing, eating porridge, one gets hungry very quickly.

  2. Porridge for me, pls. I don’ t mind a bit about “hoon tng” but minced meat is a must. I have come across people putting thinly sliced meat instead of minced meat in porridge which is not quite pratical. Foochow fried noodles looks like lack of ingredients.

    That’s quite typical of Foochow fried noodles here these days, minimal ingredients…but what’s more important is the nice wok hei fragrance. Some, like this one here, do not have that at all. Fail! Never seen slices of meat in porridge here, just minced meat…and innards, if any, and egg!

  3. Your girl like me, doesn’t take innards? I usually pass all those to my hubby but sometime he forces me to take at least one liver. Yuk!

    Obviously your hubby knows what’s good for you. Hehehehehe!!!

  4. good morning! oh no, it’s not friday yet.. ><" ..
    seeing your pics of noodles here, make me want to get breakfast. But i'm on this intermittent fasting diet thing.. so tahan la.

    What? You are fasting? Whatever for, young man? Go, hit the gym…or go jogging! You break your fast on Friday? We fast on that day – it’s the season of Lent.

  5. I haven’t seen porridge with intestines for a long time. Porridge with pig liver is very nice. Love it.

    I don’t go around eating porridge all that much but I think most places, they will just have minced pork and egg…and century egg upon request, no innards. Some will give a bit of yeu tiao in the porridge.

  6. Ohhh those intestines looks ermmmmm, I do eat them but that one looks like filled with goodness.

    I am pretty sure they were not thoroughly cleaned or they would have been hollow and…flat – thank goodness they were not bitter.
