Zhen Zhen's smooth-textured rice porridge comes dressed with chopped spring onions, fried shallots, preserved radish, and, at the diner's option, an egg. Orders can also incorporate the likes of chicken, century egg, frog, or sliced fish, or one can opt for basic porridge with a plate of raw fish salad (all told, S$4.50, about US$3.35 at the time). Also shown: one of Zhen Zhen's trays, marked with a ribbon so it returns to the right stall.
