1. Fish congee
It’s slices of fish, with the option of fish belly, served in over-boiled rice porridge. Get it with youtiao: porous, deep-fried breadsticks. On the side, you’ve got a mixture of soy sauce, spring onions, and ginger for dipping.
The breadsticks are best after dunking them in the scorching porridge, where they nearly liquefy. Then enjoy the fish with a bit of the soy sauce mixture for a perfect balance of sweet, salty, and savory flavors, followed by gulping down the soupy rice for the ultimate comfort feeling / breakfast hangover cure.
Where to get it? Sang Kee Congee Shop is hands down the best, 7-9 Burd Street, Sheung Wan.
