A simple tummy-warmer congee at Chok Chai 4

 เจ๊เกียง โจ๊กกองปราบ (Je Giang Jog Gong Brab) at Chok Chai 4 is one of D’s favorite, and it has also became a favorite of mine. They are open 24 hours a day, so congee anytime that you like.

2 bowld of porridge. 12 types of condiments.

 Thai congee. Not just a congee. But one that comes with many condiments, for customers to ‘balance’ the flavors of thir congee. A little bit more of this, and a little bit more of that.

Chilli powder. Sugar. Chillies in vinegar. Fish sauce. Chillies sauce. White ground pepper. Vermicelli rice noodles. Ginger. Spring onion. Crispy fried things. And two other sauces ..

We only used some of the condiments, and D of course used more condiments than me. He had 6 out of 12, whilst I had 3.


Pretty as it is, but no .. we need a lil’ bit more

1. Vermicelli rice noodles
3. White ground pepper


3. Chilli in vinegar


4. Ginger


5. Spring onion


6. Some fried stuffs

 THB 92 for a satisfying meal of two.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
