So i have been ill for the past few days and went into hospital.
Urgh, i had such a shit time in the hospital i don't even want to talk about it.
Anyway, i'm slowly recovering and i have been surviving on Congee since the past few days.
Congee saves lives, i am serious! Whenever your ill and you don't have the appetite for anything, Congee is the only thing you wouldn't mind eating. Which is like a GODLY thing!
For those who don't know what Congee is a type of rice porridge or rice soup. It basically is rice cooked in a lot of water. You can eat it plain or just at a pinch of salt and it tastes great!
Of course there is many other ingredients you can add to the congee!
For those who have no idea what the hell congee is and comes across it for the first time would think, "Ewww!!! Porridge!" or "Ewww!! looks like vomit!" =.=;; damn u.......
My favorite is Pi Dan and Lean Pork Congee.
Congee is often eaten with fried bread sticks known in cantonese 'yau ja gwai'.
yum yum, i love that with my congee!
You can't get bored of congee because it's basically rice and it's the side dishes/toppings you change. What's why i'm still alive after 3 days of congee! hahaha!!!
In Hong Kong there is a very good old traditional Congee Bar on Victory Avenue in Mong Kok.
The menu and everything is in chinese so for foreigners i'm afraid you'll have to go with a chinese friend or speak chinese or know what you want already in chinese because they don't speak english.
One other thing, it's a huge ass bowl for an extremely cheap price!
It's normally packed during breakfast and Lunch because there are many schools around and afterall, it is Mong Kok we are talking about! But if you go there just before lunch hour or after, your fine :)
But this place is seriously the best Congee restaurant in Hong Kong. Well;; that's what i think anyway hehe. So if you really like Congee and live in Hong Kong or go to Hong Kong. Try this place out!
