I don't know why but two weeks ago somehow I really really wanted to have some chee cheong chuk 猪肠粥 (pig intestines porridge? LOL). CCC at BT Food Court and New Lane were closed. Eventually, after gobling down 2 bbq chicken thighs at BT Food Court, my parents and I drove to Ayer Itam to try our luck for CCC. Indeed, the uncle and his stall was there so we stopped at the roadside to tapao.

The stall was easily recognisable as it looks like those stalls back in the olden days, partly made of wood with spring onions, intestines and red char siew hanging. lol So classic!

I quickly ordered 2 packets with extra white intestines (uhm as in....bak cheong, 白肠?) Anyway, I also asked the uncle to add roasted/fried intestine (some call siew cheong 烤肠, some call cha cheong 炸肠). Remember asking the uncle to separately pack them to maintain the crispyness! Maybe ask him to reduce the amount of pepper as well. He tends to put in too much :P

Extra side ingredients means extra money of course. Each packet cost RM5. A standard price even if you eat at BT Food Court or New Lane. So far only CCC sold at New Lane and Ayer Itam doesn't have the gamy smell. Very important, otherwise you would feel as if you are eating something nasty :S

The roasted intestine was very crispy and flavourful! Imagine a spoonful of smooth porridge with smooth strips of bak cheong 白肠 in your mouth and a sudden burst of crispyness from the fried intestines :)

Best to be eaten with porridge, else too salty... Haha Porridge was cooked less flavourful compare to the side ingredients so they complement each other.

The uncle only opens his stall at night and he will be there until all the porridge are sold out. I forgot to ask him when is his off day...opss...

This is the map roughly. The place is Pekan Air Itam. So many names. Ayer Itam, Air Hitam, Air Itam =.=

Oh man...I am getting fatter these days...

Happy reading~

    I love CCC too with additional add ons of the crispy siu cheong. :)

    You also found it rather hard to get great food these few days right? I had that problem for last one week. Every good stalls tend to take long breaks.. haha. Well, I have to solve some problems too with the unavailability of good food. Check out my latest post. :P
