Best Chicken Congee!

Whether you come here for dinner or a late night snack, you will be treated to the best rice porridge (or chinese congee). The congee is not watery, and comes in 3 types: chicken, fish or plain. We tried the fish congee since the condiments that we ordered are mostly chicken (salted egg, egg cooked... read more

Look no further if you are looking for local chinese style bubur ayam (chicken porridge). Not only it is famous for its porridge, but its darkened chicken rice (nasi hainam dengan ayam panggang), steamed chicken and its dark eggs are another side dish to go along with the porridge.

If you are residing in Jakarta and still never heard about Bubur Ayam Mangga Besar, means you haven't explored enough this city yet. Bubur Ayam Mangga Besar is a classic chinese restaurant which only serves some basic chinese foods such as porridge and chicken rice. Eventhough they only have limited selections on their menu, their restaurant has never been quiet.... More

My first to this restaurant, quite surprised on the food quality. We had the signature stream chicken, very tasty. Their porridge is very good too. We also ordered the tauhu soya sauce, nice. The restaurant is not big so there is a waiting time. Got to be patient. Even when you get the table to sit your food will still... More

This is place is famous for Bubur or the Nasi Hainan more? Beats me. Anyway, who cares. Both are nice. I like the combination of the nasi hainam together with the spicy prawns and the mellow and sweet tofu. The tastes all come well together even for a non chilli eater like me. If you are at Kota and not... More

This is my dad's fave in Jakarta, the staffs are quite friendly. The food is tasty, bubur ikan (fish porridge), telur phitan (black egg), roasted chicken (ayam panggang), is very recommended. This place is my fave too!!! But it's got packed and very crowded, so the sevice becomes slower, yet still worth the waiting!!!

this is the place to eat congee and hainamese chicken rice. the food taste is good, price is very reasonable. the only downside is that it is hard to find the parking space because most of the time they're very crowded.
