It is my first time trying Ah Kang porridge and they are indeed unique. And for those who are not aware, Ah Kang Duck & Fish Porridge has a history that goes back to the 1960s.
The stories begin back to 1960s in the little small town of Pekan Nenas, Johor where it began with Ah Kun who sold the braised duck porridge back then during the 1960s. The recipes was passed from Ah Kun to Ah Kang’s dad and they started selling them back in 1974. Their signatures were the Ikan Parang and Pomfret porridge. Ah Kang’s dad was very particular in using a variety of special good materials in the porridge which enhanced the taste and give it a unique experience. It was a very popular stall in this small town. Ah Kang was with the business from the start since the age of 14 and learnt how to cook from his mum and dad. The business stopped in the late 1980s when the Ah Kang father passed away and his mum moved to Kuala Lumpur with him.
Ah Kang started the business again with his sibling in 2007 at Subang Jaya Section 14 under the name Restoran Tien Kee. Many from the small town of Pekan Nenas who moved to KL came afar to taste this famous Braised Duck and Ikan Parang porridge. Many good reviews were written about them in the Stars, Sunday Mail and Subang Echo. The business was mainly run by Ah Kang’s brother, Raymond and Sister, Jacylyn. Business was very good right form the beginning and lasted for three years. Finally due to failing health of Ah Kang’s mother the business could not carry on without her.
Now the business is revived in another exciting form. Ah Kang’s son JC mooted the idea that he wanted to revive his grandpa legacy and turn it into a famous hawker chain called Ah Kang famous Duck & Fish porridge/ noodle.
