Tucked away on the streets of Sheung Wan, this congee shop has been rooted in this spot, and the hearts of the community, for over 40 years. The eatery’s supreme bowl of congee is slow-cooked using quality pork bone broth, giving it a naturally sweet flavour. Sang Kee's Dace Fish Ball Congee ($47) is a must-try. Made of fresh fish paste, the fish balls are flawlessly juicy and tender. Top it off with the condiments that come along with it and you’ll be heading home with gastronomic delight.
Whether eaten early in the day for breakfast or late at night before bed, porridge has a magical way of soothing all that ails. As the days get colder, it is a duty of care to tell Hongkongers exactly where they can get their nourishing bowl of congee for the ultimate comfort food fix. By Josephine Lau
RECOMMENDED: If congee's not your thing, there are plenty of breakfast joints in Hong Kong that can definitely give you a delicious start to the day.
