Review by Dr Sim. One of the best porridge in Singapore. Long queues. Porridge sells out quickly. No air-conditioning. Self service. Regards Dr Sim

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.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful 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
