Sam Woo Bar-B-Q Restaurant
In the 99 Ranch Supermarket
7330 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard #A103, Kearny Mesa

The Chinese say jok, Chinese porridge, is the healthy, gentle way to start the day. Jok is made with rice, not oats, and is neither rich nor fatty. Sam Woo's has it steaming from nine in the morning on. Pig's offals porridge tastes better than it sounds. The delicate of stomach can choose the beef porridge, sliced pork porridge, or seafood porridge. The tastes are all very gentle. The most interesting choice may be the "preserved egg with duck" porridge. It's not 100-year-old egg, but it does have a gamy taste to it. Soy sauce adds punch.
