Lutong Cafe For Brekky

Short talk: Thanks everyone for your useful opinions and advices on the camera. I really appreciate it. I think I've almost made up my mind to get myself a compact camera instead of DSLR. Now, I'm considering another brand, Panasonic Lumix. Anyone has any idea which model is more recommended?

Just before Zhi Dek went to Adelaide, Allen texted and asked me whether I would like to have brekky with him and Zhi Dek. After I agreed, like usual, I questioned the place and time for brekky.

"7a.m. I picked you up. Eat porridge at Lutong!"

Lutong Cafe.

I was like what? 7a.m.? Meaning to say, I had to wake up 6 something?

The reason why we had to go there so early is to avoid disappointment. According to Zhi Dek's friend, the porridge finished just before 9a.m.! The last time I had porridge at the kopitiam was few years back. After that, my parents seldom frequent that place mainly because we had to wait for a long time just for few bowls of porridge.


Lutong Cafe is the kopitiam I was talking about. It is located just opposite the petrol station at Lutong. If you get lost, just ask anyone there about the famous porridge. I'm very sure they'll be able to tell you.

Cooked using charcoal.

What's so famous about the porridge there is that, the porridge is boiled using charcoal. Although it has been boiled earlier using gas (refer to that huge pot), it still takes quite a while for the porridge to be served.

Pork porridge.

We all ordered a bowl of pork porridge each. The porridge was sprinkled with spring onions, prickled vege, pepper and sesame oil.

Add an egg.

It had a strong charcoal taste which was different from the usual porridge that we have. For RM3.50 per bowl, it came in generous ingredients and an egg. The downside is that the portion was quite small for a giant like me.

A glass of Teh-C Peng.

Down with a glass of Teh-C Peng, I had a satisfying but not a full breakfast. We had to go to a nearby market for another round of breakfast. We were conned by Zhi Dek that Lutong Market sells RM1 kolomee.

It is strongly recommended to order a bowl of kolomee or any other food at the other stall while waiting for this bowl of porridge. It'll definitely take quite some time for the bowl of porridge to reach your table. Moreover, a bowl of porridge is definitely not enough. ;)

P/s: Sabah's food soon...
