  1. I would check out a few Chinese places in the Garment District. Here's one.

      Thanks, Miss Needle for Yeng Du. I never thought they were there
      Can't wait to get some chicken jook tomorrow.

    2. the closest places i know of are in K-Town (32nd street) like Kang Suh - that would be the Korean version "jook," which is less oily and more porridge-y than congee.

      best place for congee though by far are the ones in Chinatown, IMO...

        What is name of korean style jook?? I never heard of such a thing.

            its also called jook, its not as common as the chinese version (i also don't like it as much as the chinese version), but its not an uncommon dish.

            In LA there are several places that specialize in it (they usually put abalone in it) that i go to every once in a while and there is one in flushing called bonjuk

        1. china fun isnt really in midtown, but it is sort of close....they have congee (and surprisingly on the weekends they are the only place with taiwanese breakfast in the city). their congee isn't great, but it's passable

          1. Sorry, no. Not if you are looking for a passable bowl. The only decent ones are, IMHO, in Chinatown: consider XO Kitchen, Wing Huang, or NY Noodletown.

            1. I think Hing Won does Congee, but they might only do it for Breakfast?
