Ordered a Sotong porridge, claypot fish and beancurd. Very hawker style and very nice. To me, a Penangite, this is something very representative of Nanyang Chinese food. Highly recommend to traveller from other continent if you want to experience the food culture of SEA Chinese. Cleanliness: acceptable Price: average. Spend about 10SGD Location: perfect.

This place is very local in the heart of Chinatown, order the porridge with shredded chicken! Also suggest grabbing some roast pork from next door with fried rice.

I was a bit dubious when my Singaporean host suggested we head into Chinatown to have frog rice porridge for dinner. But I was pleasantly surprised. We order two different types of frog, Schechuan which was in a hot pot with dried chills and spices, and another one with ginger and sliced spring onions. The hot pots came with bowls... More

Not feeling well lately. The porridge here always brings a form of comfort to me whether as a late night supper or simply delicious comforting "sick" person food. Love their thick porridge that comes with different options for different moods.

Located at Chinatown, very near MRT station and open to 4AM make it suitable to people who want to discover nightlife of Singapore. The frog porridge is good and has many choices of flavour, however I feel them less surprise when tasting. Interestingly, the kumquat juice or kind like that was very good and cheap. I bought more to drink... More

I wasn't expecting this much bone on slide of fish in my porridge. It made so hard to eat. Every time I want to eat those slides of fish I needed my hand dirty to pulled at least 6-7 bones out. It shouldn't be like this. The porridge itself was quite good. I may try chicken one next time. Hope... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
