I was walking in Chinatown yesterday feeling cooler days ahead and wanted to make a pot of Congee for dinner and have leftover for lunch today.
In the past the best Chinese Donuts were from Hing Lung on Broadway, but over night they would be come rock hard. You need to soak them forever in the congee to get to be soft enough to eat.
But while walking Jackson I notice some wonderful looking Fried Beard looking back at me in the window of House of Dim Sum. So I pick up a couple sticks. Today for lunch I was happy to see they were still soft and work wonderful in my Peanut and Dried Fish Congee.
Cost was about 1.30 for each piece.
Years ago they were and may still be the only take out dim sum shop that had rice coated shrimp meat balls. But I did not have time to check this place since I was in a kind of a rush.
