Best congee in Toronto - 2014 Dec 31 Edition

scherz0 | Dec 31, 201401:25 PM

My emphasis is on quality of both the congee and ingredients, rather than price. My family prefers North York, Richmond Hill, and Markham but I welcome suggestions anywhere. I read but fear that it may be outdated.

We used to like Congee Queen at the intersection of Don Mills Rd and Steeles Ave E, but a recent visit proved disappointingly obnoxious and noxiously unsavoury, as deplored at I'll explain with just 2 dishes.

We ordered the Congee with Sliced Fish and Cilantro (Please forgive me if I misidentified the herb, notwithstanding, but as expressed in the above Yelp review, the fish tasted distastefully 'fishy'. The menu didn't reveal the type of fish, but I suspect that a cheap, vile, frozen kind was used.

The pan-fried turnip patties tasted satisfactory, but to the shock of my pescetarian family, they were cooked with pork, likely a cheap way to enhance taste, but suggestive of failure of skill and of a cover-up thereof.
