From the Burpple community

After reading my post in Lim's Fried Oyster, one of my 师兄s commented that it is "not solid enough" and recommended this stall at Lao Zhong Zhong Eating House instead. Needless to say, I needed no further invitation.

I guess this can be described as a hidden find because there is very little information or reviews on this stall. I am also not sure if Google got the name of the stall right too.

The first thing you will notice is their oysters of course. Though they are as plump as Lim's XXL sized korean oysters, they are big, fat and juicy in their own right. Their flour batter though is way better. It is a lot less greasy and much more savoury and crispy.

To be honest, both are great renditions but between the two, I kinda prefer Meng Kee as their flour batter is tastier and its closer to home!


Best in Singapore? At least, in my opinion. Never a fan of such hawker food until I tried Lao Zhong Zhong. Quality ingredients are used. Everything is good especially the Ngoh Hiang that was packed with yam. I like the fried dish with egg too. Not sure what it’s called. Go for the chestnut cake as well, the dip is the perfect complement for the fried stuff! 😍

Couldn’t resist dropping by LZZ for its delicious Wu Xiang when we were in the vicinity earlier!

Like what the regulars recommend, cutting across the street and ordering a plate of wu xiang while you wait for your prawn noodles from River South Hoe Nam is just the way to go! Lao Zhong Zhong Fine Spice Stall’s awesome fried goodness also serve as perfect sides with your porridge from Soon Li Whitley Food Centre Pork Porridge, if you are into some rainy day comfort. Well-executed and not overtly oily, all the items we tried were excellent. My favourites were the moist tau kwas with melt-in-your-mouth textures and the light as well as crispy prawn fritters. The spiced ngoh hiang was good too, a pleasant mix of sweet and savoury. And of course, the spicy-tangy chilli sauce on the side adds to the whole appeal and pulls in the crowd.


I used to visit the Five Spice stall at the coffee shop near CCK bus interchange religiously as it’s great supper food for Westies and that has always been my benchmark for ngoh hiang, but Lao Zhong Zhong has knocked it completely out of the ball park with their ngoh hiang. I dare say that they don’t offer as wide a variety of ingredients as other ngoh hiang stalls do, but each piece is golden and worth a try for sure because they’re all fried to golden perfection. Crispy, but not dripping in oil! My favourites are the prawn fritter, ngoh hiang roll and the tofu. The tofu is some ho liao for sure - you can’t pick it yourself, they’ll only ask you if you want the tofu and the lup cheong when you pass them your plate. I’d say they’re both MUST ORDERS! The tofu is soft, sweet and pairs so well with the sauce. As for the lup cheong, I’m usually not a fan of Chinese sausage but the version here comes with more lean meat than fat meat and wasn’t too sweet or tough to chew! Genuinely enjoyed it. The coffee shop was packed even at 10pm, and I can see why because while the ngoh hiang is the star of the place, the other food stalls also serve up such delicious-looking food! I’ll be back for more ngoh hiang and to try the other stalls as well!


From Soon Li Whitley Food Centre Pork Porridge stall:

This coffee shop is PACKED full of good food. Although we came for the ngoh hiang, we were so tempted to order everything else but settled on a steaming hot bowl of porridge to go with the fried fritters. I only realised after that the shop was named Pork Porridge so I probably should’ve gotten pork porridge instead, but I didn’t see it on the menu (only century egg porridge and sliced fish porridges on the signboard for some reason?). Anyway, the century egg lured me in and I have no regrets ordering this at all. The porridge takes a while to be served, but it comes piping hot! Don’t let the whiteness fool you, this bowl of porridge is full of flavour and doesn’t need any soy sauce to make it salty or flavourful. In fact, I was surprised to find salted egg inside the porridge as well! It was a really nice addition to the century egg. I think there was a whole century egg and half a salted egg in this porridge, very affordable at only $4 a bowl. I enjoyed the thinly sliced chicken meat as well, which was not at all stringy, and very tender and juicy. The taste of this porridge actually grows on you even more as you eat it, and Soon Li at Lao Zhong Zhong is definitely going to be a place I’ll put on my radar for porridge in the future, especially convenient because they cater to the late birdies as well. Perfect for a rainy day, late dinner or supper time!
