I'm not a huge fan of congee. I feel it's a bit of a ripoff to pay for boiled rice, but this place really cooks down their fish and make it taste heavenly. The porridge almost became like a really thick fish stock packed with...More

The queue is usually long and many tourists trying out at this stall in Maxwell market. The porridge is generous with the ingredients. Though it is popular, the standard maintained.

Often, I choose century egg & minced pork or frog legs. Always satisfy my cravings for porridge. Generous helping of spring onion & fried garlic. However, the kitchen is rather unkempt and in dire need for a renovation.

I personally don't find anything particularly special about this porridge. Its alright, but not worth queuing for. Perhaps I ordered the wrong dish? Had the fish porridge and they weren't very generous with it. Furthermore, there were tiny bones in my porridge. It wasn't a...More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
