This was my first time at Congee Noodle House for dinner but I’ve had lunch here before. I was ready for some good old Chinese food! We saw that they had different deals where you can pick 3, 4, or 5 dishes etc. off a special dinner menu and it will come with rice, soup, dessert and they will give you a small “free” BBQ dish as well! We had 6 people but we don’t eat a lot so we ordered 4 dishes and it came with half a BBQ duck for around $67.
The first dish we picked was the Stir Fried Beef with Onions. There was lots of tender beef here and lots of onions as advertised. I love onions and you can stir fry them with lots of things! As you can see, it was rather oily but that was to be expected. Instead of giving us individual bowls of rice they just gave us a big bucket and there was more than enough rice for us!
Next we had Shrimp and Scallops with Seasonal Veggies. There weren’t as many scallops as shrimp but it was tasty and we got our share of veggies here.
The Deep Fried Salted Pork Chop came piping hot with some crunchy fried garlic and jalapeno bits on top. This was okay with the meat being slightly more stringy.
I think this was called the Buddha’s Feast or something? It’s basically a lot of braised veggies in a hot pot with mushrooms, lettuce, tofu puffs etc. I think there was also BBQ pork and squid in here.
The “free” BBQ duck plate we received is suppose to be a half portion but we thought it was must smaller than that. It might look big because of the picture but we each only had one piece. Guess I can’t complain since it was suppose to be free.
For dessert we had the standard red bean soup. The food came quickly and there wasn’t much service but we thought it was a very good deal for dinner! Congee Noodle House is also fairly large so it shouldn’t be too hard to get a table and the location is super convenient if you’re taking public transit.
