98 Bowery #A New York, NY 10013 | Chinatown | 212-965-5028

Location Description:

Congee offers a solid Cantonese menu with great rice gruel at its heart. Our faves are the lobster and sampan congees, the former plied with plenty of lobster, the latter peppered with miscellaneous ingredients and agreeably topped with roasted peanuts. Beef is also a specialty, but prepare to find it tenderized to a fare-thee-well. It's hard to resist the fried chicken (one diner pegged it as "duck-style chicken"), which comes in a delicious garlic dipping sauce. Best dish: "sauteed dried squid and dried shrimp with green and yellow chives."
