Should just keep with congee ...... Jan 29, 2011
Been here a few times ..... and have discovered that they are not just a typical congee place. As a congee place, they are wonderful .... good fresh ingredients and congee base. Even their other snacks to match their congees are great .... especially their 咸肉粽 (highly recommended)!!!!
However, this morning, we only ordered regular HK-style breakfast. "Yes" .... they have these type of food options ... and not just congee for breakfast. But ..... it really isn't too yummy. There was a lot of pepper in their macaroni. The only compliment is their coffee, which was quite strong. If I come back again for breakfast, I will only be ordering their congee and not HK-style breakfast la!!!!

Green colour 碎牛粥?? Nov 12, 2008
After seeing an advertisement for the curry chicken腸粉pot. Store looks clean and bright. This is what we had:
1. 艇仔粥 (sampan congee)
2. 碎牛粥 (minced beef congee)
3. 白粥 (plain congee)
4. 炸両 (fried dough in rice noodles)
5. Curry chicken rice noodle (腸粉) pot
All of the congee were very watery. The worst was the 艇仔粥. You could literally see each grain of rice in the congee. The 碎牛 in the 碎牛粥 had a green tinge to it and when we questioned the waitress about this, her reply was that this was the result of mixing the fried rice noodles, flour and minced beef together and that her and the other colleagues in the store ate this quite frequently with no side effects. She even went as far as to say that regular customers also noticed this and knew that it was 'normal'. A second waitress came up to our table after noting that we were in quite surprised with the explanation of waitress 1 and when we questioned her about the green tinge to the minced beef she said that she couldn't see any green tinge at all and perhaps if we did see any green colour it could be caused by the lighting in the store. Quite interesting answers from both of those ladies - but in my experience eating 碎牛粥 I have NEVER ever come across green tinged minced beef. I do know however that when meat is going off (like when you see those supermarket sells the minced beef at a really low price) it sometimes has a green tinge to it. So I can only assume that the minced beef they use in this store is not fresh.
The only good thing was the curry chicken with rice noodles hotpot. But I would not come to this place again.
