Sang Kee Congee

7-9 Burd St.
Hong Kong, China
TEL: 852-2541-1099

Americans may not happily push their bowl of Lucky Charms aside for rice porridge, but in Hong Kong congee is the breakfast of champions. Known to some as “jook,” congee is made by boiling white rice until it becomes porridge, then adding seasoning and either meat or fish. This Sheung Wan grab-and-go restaurant serves up many varieties of the dish, and regulars order it not only for breakfast staple but throughoout the day. Adventurous diners opt for authentic add-ins like fish belly or fish intestines, while the less daring choose pork or beef.

Insider Tip:

After stopping by Sang Kee Congee for jook, literary-minded travelers will want to visit the nearby Man Mo Temple on Hollywood Road, which is dedicated to Man Cheong, the god of literature, and the martial arts god, Kwan Ti.
