May 31, 2018: I was craving for pork hocks and wonton noodles and so Congee Queen (皇后名粥) was the perfect place for it. It turns out that they served an amazing one! 😀
This was my first time at the Congee Queen at Highway 7 & McCowan Road. It’s a big location (like most of the other locations actually) and I particularly liked how they designed the space so smartly. They installed mirrors on both sides of their restaurant so that when you are inside, the mirrors reflect the room and makes the place look double its actual size. It’s such a smart way to renovate the interior!
We ordered the Pork Hock Lo Mein and also the Garoupa with Bitter Melon Rice from their lunch combo. I liked that their lunch combo included a soup and a small plate of steamed vegetables too (also a spring roll). The size of garoupa fish fillets was substantial and very tasty.
The pork hocks were so big in size and so juicy and tender. The lo mein was perfect too!
The food came out super quickly, which I was happy with especially since I was starving on this day.
My mom later ordered a bowl of plain rice noodles in soup that was to her liking as well.
Since that visit, I’ve returned again for another meal at Congee Queen at this location. They’re quite popular and busy at this location. Parking can be a bit of a hassle in their restricted and limited parking lot.
