Mui Kee Congee (妹記生滾粥品) @ Flower Market, Hong Kong

We woke up early on our last day in Hong Kong, planning to have some famous porridge before we left. Since our hotel was in the vicinity, we were to take a short stroll to Mui Kee Congee (妹記生滾粥品), which is located withing the nearby Flower Market

Mui Kee Congee (妹記生滾粥品) is located in a location that most Singaporeans would find quite familiar with: it is located within a wet market, which is actually quite clean (much better than 4 Seasons Claypot Rice 四季煲仔飯), and is similar to our usual hawker center located within a wet market! 

To get to the stall, just follow the instructions once you arrive at the market and follow the instructions, take the escalator to the 3rd floor. For those who have knee/leg issues, there is a lift somewhere located within the building to make your life easier too.

The view

Mui Kee Congee (妹記生滾粥品) is apparently quite a popular breakfast spot for both tourists and locals alike, so there is a pretty high chance that you might need share a table with other people. As for us, we were there on we Wednesday morning so it was not that busy and we managed to get a table all to ourselves; we were a group of 3.

For those who are not able to read Chinese characters, have not fear, they have an English menu that is available upon request.

The English menu

We ordered the congee with fish and sliced beef, fried dough sticks and milk tea. The dough sticks were perfectly fried and non-greasy. They were crispy with a nice light and fluffy crunch to it, the perfect accompaniment to the porridge.

My favorite!

Now that is what you call a light yet hearty breakfast 😆

As for the porridge, the rice grains in the porridge have been boiled for so long that they become a nice gooey texture that requires little effort in chewing, and is easy on the stomach. The portion is also quite generous.

If you find that the flavor is too light, you can spice it up a little with some light soy sauce and pepper. While the porridge was nice, and the beef fresh, I wasn't a fan of the fish slices as they had many bones (I am not a fish connoisseur). So do chew cautiously before you swallow if you order the fish porridge.

Overall, it was quite a local Hong Kong dining experience. Definitely recommended for the food and atmosphere.
