Eat Drink KL: Swatow

Thursday, January 20, 2011


Traditional Teochew porridge is the raison d'etre of Swatow, only a few steps away from Hutong's main stalls in Lot 10.

Dozens of side dishes are available to accompany the porridge, including pork intestines & braised duck, which could have been meatier, more tender and flavorful.

Pork blood (terrific texture) & pork meat (ermmm, not so terrific).

Rather bland tofu & pig ears. For once, a bit more MSG might have been welcome.

Piping-hot porridge, with some forgettable chicken soup. Maybe we should have requested peanuts and salted egg to help make the meal tastier.

Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur.
