Have you heard about Bubur Angke? This is my all time favorite place to have Chinese style porridge/congee. Located at Taman Harapan Indah (THI) housing complex, not far from Rumah Duka Jelambar, the place can be easily recognized from the size of crowd. They open at about 4PM in the afternoon and people have started queueing even before they are open. The serving station is on the front of the place, where the seller and his assistants are busily preparing dishes. There are no menu to be seen, so you have to raise your voice to place your order, not an easy task since there are others trying to do the same thing at the same time. After that, you still have to find a table to sit.
Bubur Angke serves Chinese style porridge/congee with steamed chicken (pek cam kee), plus some chicken innards like liver, gizard, century eggs. There are also some pork innards selection available. The porridge were actually quite tasty already since it was cooked in chicken broth. It was delicious and I can easily eat it alone without any additional dish. The accompanying chicken platter were seasoned with generous sesame oil and soy sauce, topped with fried garlic and cilantro. If you don’t want to eat porridge, you can also order bihun bebek/ayam or Hainanese chicken rice to eat with your chicken platter.
So, despite the hassle of ordering and getting a table here, We still find ourselves coming to this place to savor the delicious porridge and steamed chicken from time to time. If you want to visit this place, just come early at about 5 or 6 PM, since they usually sold out pretty fast.
