Mom and Zhen Zhen Porridge at Maxwell Food Centre

Filed under: family, life — Tags: , , — toru @ 9:07 am

Brought mom and relatives to Maxwell Food Centre for breakfast.  Got lost for a while before I located the food centre.  Damn – I need to work on my sense of direction.  I have a mental block when it comes to Shenton Way/Tanjong Pagar/Chinatown area.

 Anyway, Mom saw a long queue at Zhen Zhen Porridge and wanted to try.  I took turns queuing for it with my aunt.  I think we queued for at least 25 – 30 minutes for it.  Was it worth the wait?  Definitely no!  The stall holders were very generous with their ingredients.  But really how good can porridge taste?  Rather than wasting your 30 minutes of your life in line, it is better to grab a bowl of porridge at Crystal Jade.

 Came back cleaned the house while mom & gang went shopping.  Hope they are enjoying themselves in Singapore.


  1. I also don’t think 30min is worth for a bowl of porridge.
    Anyway, had tried once, won’t go back again unless no need to Q.
