Restaurant review: Congee Noodle Delight

on

While attending a film screening at the Cineplex Odeon theaters at the top of the International Village Shopping Center, we decided to grab a quick bite at Congee Noodle Delight.

This is a casual family operated wonton house on the ground floor of the shopping center, occupying the space that was previously home to East Fusion Food.

The establishment is related to Congee Noodle House and Congee Noodle King (all owned by members of the same family).  As with the other locations, the menu is fairly expansive, covering simple noodle dishes, noodle soup dishes, rice, congee, etc.

We went with an order of chow mein with chicken, mushrooms and bak choy.

This is a fairly large plate of crispy chow mein noodles, topped with stir fried boneless marinated chicken, blanched bak choy and re-hydrated shiitake mushrooms.  It’s topped with a savory brown sauce.

This is a pretty good chow mein.  The portion is large enough to feed two people, there’s good flavor in the sauce, and the mushrooms.  The noodles were crisp where it was dry, and where wet, it soaked up the sauce to soften slightly. The vegetables still had just the right amount of firmness, and the chicken was tender with some decent flavor.

The room is brightly lit and reasonably spacious.  I find the color scheme a little too modern (lots of black), but it’s otherwise clean and comfortable.

The service, as I would expect from a chinese wonton place, efficient and minimal.

If the rest of the fare is consistent with the other locations (and it appears so), it’s decent simple cantonese food, at a reasonable price.
