My favorite is the one at New Lane near Sunway Hotel, not too far from Komtar.

Love the crispy deep fried intestine. Very fragrant and add a nice texture to the dish.

Cintra Street

My Penang friends keep telling me this one is better. I finally went there to try it.

Lunch time only. On the day I was there, the mobile cart didn't arrive till about 1 pm. I got my bowl of porridge at around 1.15pm!!!

Restoran Sin Sun Vood

It has more "liew / liao" in it, but the deep fried intestine just wasn't as crispy. And the porridge wasn't as smooth IMO.

I definitely still prefer the New Lane porridge.
