Jook Joints?

Krys Stanley | Jul 27, 2004 11:07 AM

Not the type Quincy Jones sings about, but places that serve rice porridge or congee.

My thread on lefteover rice and Margarets recent post about a jook joint (see link) have given me a craving to try this.

Besides good places to go, how do I eat this. Do you just get a bowl with everything mixed in or is this one of the mix it yourself deals?

Do you order anything else with it? It seems one post mentioned some sort of donut.

Is there a time of day to eat this? i have this impression it is a breakfast food.

What should good jook taste like? Margaret mentioned it should not be too runny.

Anyway what is your favorite type of jook at your favorite jook joint ...

Plsces I've seen mentioned are
Bow Hon on grant
Hing Lung
Washington St. Bakery

What is yau tieu?

p.s. how expensive is it?
