Nelson: Congee Queen is a chain of Chinese restaurant that specializes in Congee/Rice Noodle/Noodle/Rice. That's a translation from 粥粉麵飯. The second one can be interpreted as vermicelli instead perhaps, not sure what the exact translation would be. Obviously they serve a lot more than just that, but these types of restaurants are known for serving up the carbs aka Chinese comfort foods.
So we start with a rice. This particular one with shrimp and roe was excellent. I would have liked a tad bit more garlic though, but still very very good. I wonder if they can run out of day old rice to make fried rice with.
|These congee toppings I haven't eaten before except the middle one (pork floss). The pickled cucumber and fried dough were interesting.|
|This roast pork had a lot of bone. It wasn't that good as a result. Plus, it was served with a strange sauce (not hoisin) that made it even worse.|
|We tried a congee with pork bones. The pork bones were (predictably in hindsight) huge and took up a lot of space in the bowl. I haven't had this type before myself so I thought it was a little strange. The pork bone didn't really spread itself out throughout the congee, it was just kinda there.|
|Fried squid is one of my favourites at these restaurants. The pieces here were huge and almost too big making it a bit difficult to eat. But that's a very minor complaint.|
|Some veggies to make a balanced meal. Plus Chinese veggies are delicious.|
