Morning Congee in Tsimshatsui – Hung Lee 洪利粥店茶餐廳

It was breakfast time again. Peter the Japanese showed the FoodLover where to find a decent bowl of congee in Tsumshatsui. After making a few turns from Nathan Road, they ended up in Hung Lee 洪利粥店, a Hong Kong style cafe specializing in traditional Cantonese congee.

The restaurant was still pretty quiet at 7am but the FoodLover was excited to see a large wok full of boiling oil at the cooking counter near the front entrance. Somebody was preparing “Fried Devils” (油炸鬼) and the FoodLover’s favorite “Ox-tongue Fried Dough” (牛酥).

The congee base was very smooth (綿) and Boat Congee had all the necessary ingredients. They had to wait for the Ox-tongue fried dough because a lady came in to order half a dozen before they did. They had milk tea after the congee. The FoodLover then went back to pack up for his trip to Macau.

This is a very good place to have breakfast if you know your way around Tsimshatsui.
