A more than four decades old establishment in Sheung Wan of Hong Kong island; Sang Kee Congee Shop has been one on the list of most MUST-TRY places in Hong Kong for congee.
Congee, also known as porridge has always been known as a poor man’s food, or a bowl of tummy-warming delight usually served at home, especially when someone’s under the weather.
Okay, I was being liberal with my words. I hate congee/porridge/nasi bubur/’jook’ whatever. But I can’t deny the fact that Hong Kong folks LOVE their congee to the max. Even on a blistering hot day during lunch hour.
Beats me as to why they would submit themselves to such torturous ordeal, but after a bowl or two, I began to see the light. So to speak.
Don’t laugh. You don’t get leg space as much in most Hong Kong eateries.
And so, I skip the posts on Mong Kok and its vicinity temporarily, and let’s see what Central, Sheung Wan and Wan Chai on the island have to offer. Ready?
