Traditional Congee Breakfast
We walked down to the Congee Noodle House at Broadway and Main to try a traditional congee breakfast. Congee is a thick rice soup/porridge that is a basic to many Asian cultures, with a specific role in maintaining health. The portions were huge. Mine was Chinese mushroom and lettuce. It was like a giant bowl of oatmeal, flavored with ginger, peanut and some onion. Very interesting and filling, but not overwhelmingly so.
