Wai Kee Congee Shop, Stanley Street, Central, Hong Kong

We liked this place (G/F, 82 Stanley Street, Central, Hong Kong, tel : +852 2551 5564) enough that we were here twice for breakfast within the week.

For one, it's been really quite a while that we've had good dough fritters that wasn't overfried, overfried to hard crispy death or too chewy. The ones done up at Wai Kee were dense, yet soft. The outstanding items from the shop included their creamy congee, their also creamy radish cake filled with bits of and natural sweetness of the root vegetable and deliciously smokey plates of bee hoon.

Speaking of which, the bee hoon seems thicker while the regular noodles are thinner than what we were generally used to; which resulted in rather minimal differences in the textures of both. However a blind taste test could easily be passed simply because of the smokey aroma from the former which the latter doesn't quite possess.

The pig's blood curds in their porridge seems different from how I remember them. These ones were unusually smoother and had less flavor.
