I'm in Philly for a short time but already came here twice for brunch. I had their combo congee with fried dough, which was crunchy and congee was seasoned well. I was so full after.
Tip: I like to soak my fried dough in the congee.
I came back for their wonton soup, read some review that it might be soggy so I didnt have too high of an expectation and ordered roasted duck with it (just in case), but I was surprised! The wonton fillings were sweet and crunchy bc of fresh shrimp, and its wrapper was soft. Their roasted duck is excellent as well, nothing too special about the way they roast it, just that they didn't fail it lol.
Service is typical of Chinese restaurant (I.e. wave them over when you need something and be a bit patience, but your food will come HOT out of the kitchen)
Very typical Chinese restaurant with roast pig, roast pork, roast duck, etc. When I crave for the roasted meat, here is the place. The place is not too clean. Waiter put the meat dish in microwave before serving.
Fish congee is very watery. Little pieces of fish, not really a fillet.
Roast pork is very dry.
May be I went on an off day.
Nina W., you hit a home run with this one. This is a fantastically subtle joint to eat some really good Hong Kong style Chinese food.
As it is not far from my hotel, I gave this one a try at her suggestion. The owners are super nice and accommodating. Their food backs it all up. I had to try their Roast Duck, and I got their pan fried noodles with chicken. It all tasted incredibly fresh, and delicious. Most notably, the duck was superb. Give me more of that stuff any day. It came on a delicious bed of sticky rice which was great in its own right.
I absolutely loved the noodles. Crispy and light and the chicken was delicious. It came in a refreshing sauce and the portion was HUGE. There was no way I could finish all of this! For $18 (side note: cash only), this was some of the best Asian-esque cuisine I have had in a long time. I only discount the food is somewhat messy, and the broccoli I had was overcooked. Now I am just nitpicking. This was a great meal.
Come check this place out. It will make you and your tummy very happy!
Thank you Nina!
Went in on a Tuesday night for a much needed wonton noodle soup because I was feeling sick. Service was rather quick and they offer to separate the broth from the noodles which is great! The portion was generous and only costs $8.50 - they only take card on transactions greater than $15. I might be back to try their congee in the morning!
Very simple butcher place. Small and very similar to Ting Wong. Prices aren't too different between each other as well. I got congee with preserved duck egg before, hoping they sold it for cheaper, but it was the same. However, it was very decent!!
