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.
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.
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.
