After 35 minutes waiting, finally our porridge is here. We order one big crab around 480 grams with 300 grams of fresh prawn, RM11/100gram for crab while RM10/100gram for prawn. Highly recommended the combination of prawn and crab porridge, we are really surprise with seafood sweetness that perfectly blend into porridge. We prefer the prawn over crab as it taste so sweet and fresh, it has very good texture as well. Unfortunately during our visit there is no female crab available else it will be even better.

Cheng Ho Seafood Porridge Revisit

We got a lot suggestion from our reader to try out Cheng Ho Tom Yam Noodle after they read our Cheng Ho Crab Porridge Review here , we listen to you and here is the review on Tom Yam Noodle and Clear Soup Noodle.
Tom Yam Noodle

On this visit we sit in the main shop lot, which is a little bit stuffy compare to our previous visit where we sit on next shop that doesn’t has cooking activity.
You can see the chief busy preparing our food, it took just around 10minute to serve our noodle, while waiting we saw some foreigner visit this shop, proven to be so delicious that attract crowd here.

Clear Soup Prawn Porridge, the soup is sweet and believes to be using the same soup as the crab porridge, the prawn is a little bit small and not white prawn but it is fresh and tender.
Clear Soup Noodle

Tom Yam Noodle, it not really up to our expectation as the Tom Yam soup is not that spicy and sour instead it more to sweet taste. Same goes to the prawn which is not white prawn and size is small, it would be better if they serve big white prawn which always taste better.
Tom Yam Noodle

Cheng Ho still bests for it Crab Porridge but not the Tom Yam Noodle.

Cheng Ho Crab Porridge at Nibong Tebal

Cheng Ho located in Nibong Tebal and it was quite hard to find this shop as it don’t have any signboard at all except the small hawker like stall only.
Nibong Tebal famous for it Crab Porridge especially the one from Chang Kee but according to local they prefer Cheng Ho more.

The shop is located on road side, you need to drive slowly to notice it.
They serve lot of variety, Seafood Porridge, Seafood Soup Noodle, Seafood Tom Yam and Boiled Octopus(Tu Bo Sui).

It took them quite sometime to cook as each bowl of porridge is cook individually.

Big bowl of porridge covered with vegetable, this vegetable is the one we eat in Laksa.

The big bowl porridge served with 2 Crabs, 1 big and 1 medium size. You can ask for more crab if you like but I would advice to ask for more porridge instead as the portion for porridge is quite less.
Fresh Crab sweetness and essence is disolve in the porridge, with tiny cut of pork lard make this porridge very delicious.
Remember the vegetable on top, after dip in for some time it smooth and tasty.
The way they cook porridge which totally different with Teoh Chew Style which cook for long time and it become like soup but for this crab porridge you can still get the rice in good shape but soft for sure.

It cost us only RM24 for two crabs porridge. Reasonable Price!
