HKG: Mui Kee Congee (妹記生滾粥品)

What a nice breakfast of silky smooth congee and soothing lemon honey drink!

One of the things that I had to fulfil during the trip to HK last year was to complete the Dragon's Back trek, leading all the way to Tai Long Wan (lit. Big Wave Bay). To fuel ourselves, my BFFs and I decided to have congee for breakfast.

Pikachu was posing cutely before he devoured his congee. :P

Congee with Sliced Fish HK$32.00 (~S$5.75)
Taste: 8/10

The silky smooth congee came to the table piping hot. While I wouldn't mind it being slightly less thick than my personal preference, it was flavourful. The sliced fish was firm and fresh.

Congee with Pork Intestine and Meatballs HK$34.00 (~S$6.10)
Taste: 8.5/10

I enjoyed the pork congee more due to its bolder flavour profile. The pork balls were juicy and springy, while the large intestines weren't rubbery. The latter didn't have too strong a smell either.

Chinese Dough Sticks HK$10.00 (~S$1.85)
Taste: 9/10

The you tiao (Chinese cruller) made a good complement to the congee, especially since it was deep-fried to perfection. The golden crust was crispy, while the inside was still moist.

Lemon Honey (Hot) HK$14.00 (~S$2.50)
Taste: 8.5/10

A perennially favourite beverage that I used to drink often during my student exchange days at HKUST, the hot lemon honey warmed my body and soul that chilly morning. It was soothing on the throat.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8.5/10
Ambience: 6/10
Service: 7.5/10
Overall: 7.5/10

Pika's advice: Do try the highly recommended chee cheong fun (Chinese rice noodle roll), priced at HK$14.00 (~S$2.50)Despite the misty day, I was glad that it didn't rain during the trek. 

Well, that's another trek down! :)
