So, since I started eating some solid food — crackers, other bland carbohydrates — yesterday, I was craving congee (or rice porridge, or rice soup). I walked a bit around Chinatown looking for a likely place, and decided to go into the Buddha’s Delight Vegetarian Restaurant after deciding against a couple of other places. Just my luck, they had something called “rice soup” which I ordered in the hope that it was congee. And it was. It was very good, too. Amazingly good. It had tofu, mushrooms (a few types), and some taukee embedded with peppercorns. Plus the usual garnish of scallions, cilantro, and slivers of ginger. I ordered a couple of spring rolls, and some Chinese leek dumplings with it. The dumplings were very good, too. Patties of glutinous rice flour mixed with leek slices, and pan fried. The dumplings and congee would be a perfect breakfast meal.
