Mui Kee Congee

579 Wishlisted
~$15/pax
Behind every bowl of Mui Kee congee lies a heritage as rich as its flavour. Its humble origins date back to 1979 where founder Mak Mui opened Mui Kee in a small corner stall in Mong Kok, Hong Kong. Today, Mui Kee Congee is helmed by her grandson, Ah Tung. Using recipes and cooking techniques which have been passed down through three generations, every scoop of silky smooth congee is filled with old school ingenuity.

Had the parrot fish slice porridge every time I eat here. Standard never drops!

Hong Kong coffee and milk tea is good too!

Claypot dishes are served in the evening in lieu of cheung fun. I had the beef with ginger and spring onion. It was pretty filled with flavour and is a perfect complement to the porridge to fill up your stomach. The beef was so tender and retained its flavour in the claypot. So fragrant and mouth watering. I’ll want to try the pork liver and frog leg next time.

Feel like having Cantonese-style jook/ congee? Try Mui Kee, one of Hong Kong’s most famous congee places, in the heart of Orchard Road.

Had their signature parrot fish belly and century egg congee. The fish belly is cooked with the porridge over high heat although it contains bones. And I love how the century egg has a creamy centre, just like those you get in hing kong. Don’t forget to order some you tiao/ dough fritters to accompany your meal.

What makes the jook here special is the strong wok hei (charted) flavour. The texture of the congee is very consistent and smooth. You can’t feel the rice grains as it’s been smashed up into gruel. If Oliver Twist was served this every day, I’m sure he wouldn’t be complaining.

PSA it's located on the exterior of the building, and the sliced ginger is so Thin and numerous do ask for it to be taken out if u dont like ginger

Exceedingly smooth, this was a food bowl of Fish Congee and there wasnt any bones(take note this isnt the parrotfish belly congee which might contain bones). The Fish came in the form of Small chunks. While parrotfish is a tasty Fish, it really doesnt affect the taste of the congee that much, compared to other kinds of Fish. So not rlly worth it imo

The only place, as far as I know, that serves Wok-Hei flavoured Congee. Originating from Hongkong, this renowned chain expertly imparts the charred flavour whilst wok frying large chunks of fish into their congee broth, such a genius idea, I wonder why no one else does it. The YouTiao (dough fritters) are also a must-order item, takes a short while to get to your table, but comes out crisp and fresh fried every single time.
All their fish congees may contain bones, so please take extra caution if you’re bringing your children or older folks.
For a quick dining concept within a small space, their service was exemplary. Cheers to that @lesamisgroupsg!
