Kwong Chow Congee & Noodle House
Kwong Chow Congee & Noodle House is a rather non-descript looking Chinese restaurant located on Main Street in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. As their website touts… they are known for having inexpensive Chinese cuisine.
When you walk inside this shop, probably the first thing that you notice is all of the specials written in Chinese on the walls. This is very typical of old-school Chinese restaurants… always a good idea to bring someone along who can read or speak Chinese.
Our meal started with their complimentary soup. This is the kind of home-made soup that’s really basic but satisfying on a cold winter day.
If you want to try a bunch of different dishes at a Chinese restaurant, it’s best to come along with a group since the dishes are all served family-style. Here we have a cold lemon tea, shredded pork with vermicelli, diced chicken with cashews, and vegetables with mixed seafood.
And here’s the fried rice and the chicken and mushroom chow mein.
The portion sizes here aren’t huge, but the food’s okay (although I feel they go a bit overboard with the msg). Service is typical for this kind of Chinese restaurant. You’re not going to find anything outrageously good here but it can satisfy a craving.
