This place is my go to spot for congee in the North end. Rock Cod Congee is my favorite item on the menu here. Always perfectly seasoned and the cod is always smooth and almost fall apart tender. The wontons are also probably the best in the north end. Just depending on if I want something more filling I would go for this in a heartbeat. The wontons are not as big as Mike’s but the flavor in them is undeniably good (plenty of shrimp in the wontons).
Everyone that comes here probably has the same first impressions…this place looks like Mike’s Noodle House. The color and the faux brick walls look very similar; however, it’s not just the look the food itself is very similar which leads me to wonder if they share some kind of common ownership or cooks. But whatever, it’s all good food. There are some minor differences you will notice, price-wise it is a little bit more expensive but you can take advantage of the free and plentiful parking here. Mike’s on the other hand there is only street parking that will run you $2.50/hour (and that’s if you find a parking spot). By avoiding the parking cost it will probably be cheaper coming here (depending on what part of the city you live in). These guys are normally not as busy as Mike’s, which means no waiting for a seat…Yeah!
I got my food to go this time but was afraid of spillage in my car (specially with the liquid menu items). However, they packed everything securely in tightly sealed plastic containers. Not a single drop spilled on the way home.
Note – Don’t forget a little white pepper will give it a very nice kick. Min charge of $15 for credit cards otherwise a $.30 charge will be applied.
