MyQueenstown Team has decided to go healthy this week. After tasting various delicacies across Queeenstown for the past half year, correspondents from our team has unglamourous bulging stomachs. Therefore, we set food on Commonwealth Crescent today, in search for something light yet palatable. After taking the escalator in Commonwealth Crescent Market and Food Centre, we saw mind-bogging queues outside Hong Kee Congee, popularly known as 鸿记粥, and decided to feast on its famous Fish Head porridge and Century Egg porridge.
Century Egg Porridge
Trying Hong Kee's century porridge in a hot and sweaty morning is refreshing and revitalising. The consistency of the thick white porridge suggests the hawker's experience in this trade. The generous serving of century egg in the porridge certainly impresses us and it costs $2.50 for a bowl of century egg porridge.

MyQueenstown Team was rather disappointed not to taste their famed Fish Head Porridge because it was already sold out by noon. Opened from 7am-6pm every day, Mr Ho & Mdm Kuan has been serving Commonwealth residents with their delicate and sincere culinary skills for the past 36 years after arriving from North Bridge Road. Both the owners are residents of Commonwealth. When MyQueenstown Team probed further on their superior food quality, we understand that Mr Ho had ordered fish from Telok Ayer, which explains its freshness! Do try it while you are in Commonwealth Crescent!
