Checked out this market today and was told by Diana there are many old school stalls still here. Well yes that’s true and along these stalls came with their attitude. Saw a stall @hammees_sg which is prolly the only stall that is hipster but was told the wait was gonna be 1 hour 40mins. So ya, #okthanksbye.
Tried Hong Kee Porridge, not bad, liver a little bloody though.
The Bak Chor Mee was good, from another stall, forgot the name.
The pork balls noodles was a little bland but the minced pork balls were nice!
Then of course the famous dessert stall, very traditional until no iced versions. Yeah I had my cheng tng hot… Go support local ya!
Think some of you saw my status on Facebook that I was meeting an equally crazy friend for porridge at Maxwell Food Centre at 6.30am… well this is the review lor! Struggled to get up last Sat morning… reached there at almost 7am… was late lah cos of work… sigh… The stall is located at the 2nd row, left side from the middle entrance from the open carpark. For those who always frequent Maxwell for lunch or dinner, you must be wondering how come this stall is always close… Reason is, they open from 4am to 8am… by 7.30am, they start running out of everything!
But at that unearthly hour, a lot of people are already waiting for their orders… So I went there show my face and he still remembers my old orders from many years ago… amazing chap. Waited for about 10mins only, our orders came.
Taste: Smooth, not too salty and taste just right. Raw fish is fresh and lovely…
Portion: Slightly above average.
Price: $3.00 for porridge and $4.00 for raw fish
RTE: YES!!! If I can wake up!!!
Location: Stall No. 13, Maxwell Food Centre. (Opens from 4am to 7.30am! Better be there earlier to avoid disappointment)
