Upon coming back from our Blue Mountain trip, we both were in need some of comfort food and veggies, so we went to Congee Queen at Highway 7 and Leslie (皇后名粥) in Markham for some reliable Chinese comfort food.
It was my first time to this location of the congee/rice/noodle franchise chain and I really liked the interior design of this shop! There were a lot of people dining here on a Sunday evening but we got a booth table immediately once we stepped inside the restaurant.
It was a simple meal. We ordered a bowl of Sliced Fish & Blood Jello Congee, Snow Pea Leaves with Garlic Sauce, and a bowl of customized fish soup noodle (this was completely similar to the ones that Deer Garden offers where for $9.75, you can customize your soup base, noodles, toppings, and add on a snack too). Ken chose the Tomato & Pumpkin Fish Soup base with udon, king oyster mushrooms, tofu puffs, with a side of pan fried beef tongue.
Everything was decent and filling. The snow pea leaves were especially fresh and soft. The bowl of udon was very large too and came with steaming hot soup. The Tomato & Pumpkin Fish Soup base was so clear and appetizing. We really enjoyed the pan fried beef tongue too. It was so tender and well seasoned.
(Looking at their website, I learned that their Highway 7 & Leslie Congee Queen location is the only one that serves the fish soup noodles! Cool!) 😀
