Two great dishes at Congee

I recently ate alone at Congee on Bowery, so couldn't get a large selection of food. Instead, I had the pea shoots with dried scallop and crab meat, and the fish slice + preserved egg congee. Both were just superb. It's been a couple of years since I've been, and I realized I really don't go there often enough... My wife and I have been eating at Amazing 66 a lot recently but after this meal I think we need to split our time between the two!

    You're talking about a restaurant called Congee, on the Bowery a couple of blocks north of Canal, on the west side of the st? If so...I reailly like that place. Good congee, and their salt baked squid is the best I have in the city.

      Gutsofsteel, this is Congee Village at 100 Allen Street. They may be related, but I am not sure...

        Your post title says "Congee" and there is a restaurant called Congee. There is Congee Village, there is Congee Bowery, and then there is Congee which I mentioned, which is a separate owner and in my opinion the best of the three.

        Congee Village: 100 Allen
        Congee Bowery: 207 Bowery
        (these two are the same owner)

        Congee: 98 Bowery

          agreed. congee at 98 bowery is way better than the other two. and yes - i think about that salt baked squid dish often. seriously. maybe it's the cashews and the shredded jalapeno that puts it over the top. it's just simple and really addicitive.
