Mui Kee Congee 妹記生滾粥品 - Mongkok - Kowloon, Hong Kong

Hong Kong isn't all about modern and flashy restaurants. There's more to it. Search and you'll find hidden treasures.

We didn't expect a hawker type of food court in the city of Hong Kong. I was surprised.

Mui Kee Congee is located at the top level of Fa Yen St Market. It's a family owned business and has been open for decades. They've been mentioned in a number of guides and have been on numerous TV programs so they do get a lot of tourists. There is a menu in Chinese, English and Japanese.

The surrounding environment may look unclean and unhygienic but don't be intimidated by the interior.

We ordered the 'Fish Congee (HKD 30.00)' which is made from a fish broth . A hot and steamy bowl of delicious congee came out less than five minutes after ordering.

The texture of the congee is superb. It's consistently smooth and velvety from hours of slow cooking. The ginger and shallot garnish gives it a nice balance.


The fresh fish slices were tender and juicy but be careful of the tiny bones.

The elderly man who was manning the shop told us we had to add pepper to make it more flavoursome. I love pepper so yes to pepper!

A hearty and wholesome dish away from home. It's real affordable, portions are generous and a rare find in the bustling city of Hong Kong.
