There’s nothing more satisfying than digging into a bowl of warm chicken porridge when the night gets cold. Luckily for all of us, there’s Bubur Ayam Mangga Besar.

The district of Mangga Besar continues to be a neighbourhood filled with famous street foods that attract Jakartans from different regions. And Bubur Ayam Mangga Besar is no exception.

Opened only from morning till early noon and then again from evening until midnight, you may not have to wait for seats but diners stream in continuously in this establishment. All for a warm bowl of chicken porridge. Unlike other chicken porridge, you’ll get to add extra toppings here. The choices are limited but delicious nevertheless. Choose from steamed or roasted chicken (or both), century egg and salted egg. But if that’s too much chicken in one go, opt for their fish porridge instead.

It is definitely a comforting sight to see sterile lights radiating from the establishment late in the night when you’re looking for something light to fill the stomach. Forget about over the counter medication, Bubur Mangga Besar might just the most satisfying and effective cure yet when you’re feeling under the weather.
