Pork porridge. Let me refine that – ARTIFICIAL pork porridge. Those three words have been kind of interesting to say while this little cup has been kicking it around here. But no more. Artificial pork porridge is lunch.
I like the little graphic of the pig happy as can be that he isn’t in this cup of porridge. He’s probably also relieved that most people don’t go into a restaurant and request as to the special of the day and hear ‘pork porridge.’
So here’s the end result. It came with a plastic spoon but it wasn’t my style. So you’re probably wondering what the heck pork porridge – that is artificial pork porridge – tastes like? Well, imagine Cream of Wheat but salty and with bits of onions in there and you’ve pretty much nailed it. It’s surprisingly good to be honest. So even though this wasn’t noodles, it was an instant affair in a cup. I see for it to be treated the same. I give this stuff 2.5 out of 5.0 stars; it was good but I couldn’t really see ever getting it other than for novelty and it really doesn’t give any feeling of satiation after eating it; more of a ‘wow that was full of sodium’ kind of feeling and 1170mg is a lot but much lower than most things of this nature.
***Seafood Flavor is recommended***
I like it a lot. The seafood one tastes better. I am eating the chicken one right now and I its not as great as the seafood one. The chicken one has bits of ginger which is okay. Asians have rice porridge when they’re sick, right? Which explains why there would be ginger bits in the chicken porridge. But, it sure is tasty!! I think the seafood porridge also has shrimp in it. So yummyy.
Yeah these porridges are kind of interesting. They’re usually with the instant noodles… A local store now has a few other Vietnamese ones – might have to check out the seafood! Any idea of garnished/things to add to these?
Hey there Hans’s! I am glad you did a review on this stuff as I really look forward to your input and reviews on instant noodles. With the Jok I like to put a little bit of fried onions in mine. You could even put in some chopped scrambled egg and/or green onion. I think of these things as more of a thick soup then a cream of wheat consistancy-wise. I really enjoy them for a quick snack now that the weather has cooled off. Haven’t tried the seafood yet, but I do like the chicken. Keep up the GREAT work! Hope all is well! Cheers!
Hey thanks! More to come!
