I have taken these photos for quite some time now but never got around to posting them yet as I could not get the actual name of the place. This Selera Jaya is not the Medan Selera at Jalan Othman but is opposite Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Darker and with lesser stalls, the place here still has a few stalls with certain specialties that draw their own customers.
Like the porridge stall I went to. With the recent outbreak of swine flu, I had wondered if business at this stall had decreased since I last went there but when I dropped by the other day, they were still doing brisk business!
This stall owner churns out bowls and bowls of porridge and other goodies. It's so swine filled that even I found it a little bit too much for me. Why? I only eat good roast pork and char siew, yes, that's how I like 'em swine meat! What my friends ordered, I could only stare in disbelief - which is heavenly to quite a number of people though, judging by the lot who ordered this....
Loaded Pork Soup! The whole works from all parts of the swine (including the blood!). I nearly fainted! Hahaha....
Then came the porridge...Pig's blood again!
Chicken me ordered the shredded chicken porridge instead. Came with Yu Tiao (Yau Char Gwai) and I added a part extra that I do eat - crispy fried intestines. The porridge was very smooth and with the added ingredients, was delightful to eat and I could tell why this stall attracts the crowd, "porky or non-porky" ones. Hahaha...
But of course, one can order the steamed chicken here too, for those who are even more chicken than I am in having an encounter with the whole swine. Prices at this stall are pretty reasonable (sorry, I can't seem to recall!).
So, for those who can't be swayed or discouraged by the precautions and warnings from the media and well intentioned friends, go ahead...eat this!
