Congee is an Asian comfort food – it’s our version of chicken noodle soup! Congee is like a warm hug on a cold, chilly day and a cure all for whatever is ailing you! Above is a photo of a bowl of crab meat, egg white and fish maw congee which is one of our favorites at Congee Queen (Lawrence Ave and Don Mills Road, Toronto). For those who have not grown up eating congee like my husband, at first sight this dish is a little odd or even plain looking, but I assure you it will be love at first bowl! There are many different varieties and versions of congee but the same is true for all of them – it’s comfort food at its best! For the less adventurous types, don’t worry you can always order a bowl of good old plain chicken congee!
