The everlasting queue that lines up all the way from start of business to end business hours (2pm). The entire process of driving all the way to Maxwell, finding a carpark lot and to purchasing the food from Zhen Zhen in Maxwell Food Centre was rather tedious. But nothing can stop us from enjoying the well known dishes from Zhen Zhen.After a good wait about half an hour in the queue, I conclude that the crowds of Zhen Zhen's was no gimmick. Food was genuinely great and did not let us down. Impressed by its presentation, this colorful plate of raw fish was just too good to be true. Looking at its quantity, for such amount of food, it could easily cost me S$5.00 but from Zhen Zhen, I'm getting them at almost half the pricing. Cost: S$3.00Amount of fresh chilled cut fish was heavily garnished with 4 limes, shredded gingers, spring onions in fried and raw versions and topped with some striking red hot chilli slices. Those meat are freshly and not the typical thin slices we got from the Chinese New Year Yu Sheng. Although this dish was served raw, the powerful garnishing had greatly minimised the raw taste from a fish. Eating them is as good as having it cooked.Next on our order is none other than its porridge that had been drawing the hordes. If you are thinking of having pork porridge, I'm afraid that you have to go elsewhere as Zhen Zhen does not sell that. All were good. Every bowl of porridge that comes out from the kitchen was garnished with fried onions, spring onions and Dong Cai (Mustard Greens). Porridge was cooked to a gluey perfection till the extent that one couldn't even find any grains or clustering. What's the trick? It was seen that Zhen Zhen's had its stall implemented with a big automated cooker that slowly stirred its porridge around the clock throughout its business hours. At a reasonable value, our bowls of Century Egg with Lean Meat and Chicken Porridge was actually filled up with chockful of fresh ingredients. All in all, their porridge are special of its kind and is definitely worth a try. continue reading

There are different sizes for the porridge and I got the $3 portion which is the smallest size I think. It is quite a big and filling bowl of congee. I ordered the century egg, fish and chicken porridge. There were lots of ingredients in it. With every mouthful, there were ingredients being scooped up. The congee was just like gruel. I could hardly see any grains of rice. Wish it could be less gruel-ish. Definitely worth the money but I don't think I will queue up for 30 minutes just to eat it again. continue reading

If you have a craving at lunch time for a bowl of piping hot porridge, look no further than Zhen Zhen porridge. The porridge was well cooked and very gooey, and the fried shallots was really good. Dig deeper and one can find generous portions of fresh fish and pieces of chicken. If you are feeling slightly unhealthy, then go for the fried you tiao which goes really well with the porridge. For $3 per bowl, this is indeed a bargain good eat. continue reading

after hearing so much about it and totally bewildered by the usual long queues during peak hours, i finally manage a chance to patronise it just ardound 2pm, outside peak hours. Bought chciken porridge+centuryegg+normal egg+small plate of raw fish. Guess what its $5 only, maybe auntie was in a good mood. Portion wise, its definitely enough to make u real full. Nice pieces of chicken meat (not shredded type) with ample fried shallots and spring onions. Fragrance wise its enhanced by the sesame oil. Overall a good eat with the typical gluey porridge with no hint of over cooking it.Its not advisable to witness the preparation process though return to eat : yes for the quality, no for the long queues continue reading
