I’m not entirely sure why, but it seems that I eat a lot more chicken rice in Seremban than I do in KL.
Maybe it is because Seremban has 2 particularly famous chicken rice outlets; one the “Diamond Chicken Rice” and another is this one; popular for their porridge and well, the chicken.
And my good friend Kevin who is Seremban boy and had stayed in this little town all his life got me hooked to his favourite chicken rice at Continental Hotel. Many thanks to him for sharing this gem (post HERE).
For Restoran Seremban Chicken Porridge, I was only interested in the chicken of course, since I’m not a porridge fan at all.
It took me 3 trips over 3 months to finally be able to successfully taste this.
One of the reasons was due to their relocation and no one was able to provide me their new location. Another was I always seems to be in Seremban on Tuesdays, which is their off day!
RM16 for a quarter chicken, RM4.50 for a big bowl of pork porridge with lean pork meat and plenty of innards.
Thick, fragrant and generously loaded with ingredients, I understood why it is so popular!
If you find offal offensive, opt for chicken or fish porridge or just plain old chicken rice.
I love my innards. Liver, tripe, stomach, intestines, heart… hmmm!
If you have been avoiding offals due to prior foul experiences, rest assured that the offals here are exceptional good; fresh, no foul aftertaste and perfectly cooked.
In fact, a bowl of this could potentially make you enjoy offals again.
The chicken was lovely as well, tender but with a firm bite with slippery skin.
The best way to enjoy a meal here – arrive early (before 7pm), grab a seat outside (it gets stuffy when it is crowded) order both chicken and pork porridge and slurp the smooth congee together with thick pieces of succulent chicken!
