Sai Kee Congee (西記粥店), Prince Edward Road West, Mong Kok

I recall this congee shop (133 Prince Edward Road West, Mong Kok, tel : +852 2380 9630) being old and dingy in the past. We were quite surprised when we passed by and the current premise looked like it had gone through some major update. It seemed that their other branches which I wasn't aware of also got the face lift.

So we came for breakfast a couple of times. Got the blood curd congee which was a pretty decent bowl.  

Sai Kee Congee (西記粥店), mai fun

I found myself liking their chewy texture of their mai fun - made even better with a squeeze of the chilli and sweet sauce. Not as flavourful as those smoky ones from Wai Kee though.

Sai Kee Congee (西記粥店), fried noodles

Fried noodles was pretty nice too. I wouldn't mind eating them again. I'm liking those firm textures.

Sai Kee Congee (西記粥店), cheong fun

Rice rolls had a rustic (read rough) feel and was quite tasty with the dried shrimps.

Sai Kee Congee (西記粥店), steamed radish cake

There was also delicious steamed radish cake to be had. Could taste the sweetness from the shredded strips of radish in there.
