Congee Queen

Congee Queen 2

The Congee Queen on Steeles and Don Mills is mostly flash and not much show.  The sister restaurant to the ever popular Congee Wong, the “Queen” offers a more elegant decor and prestigious surroundings but the food is far from superior to it’s counterpart.

Congee Queen serves up the typical Cantonese variety of dishes ranging from a large selection of congee, noodle, and rice dishes but also includes a few fusion and gourmet style approaches.    Some  examples of the higher end dishes would include the  Stir Fried Lobser with Ginger & Green Onion ($16.99) and Super Bowl Congee ($8.25 to $17.50).

Our party tried the General Tao Chicken ($9.75)   Spice and Pepper Salt Squid ($6.75), Minced Fish Congee ($4.99), and the Shredded Pork & Preserved Vegetable Chow Mein ($7.99)

The meal average at best with above average prices where you’ll likely pay on average $1 to $1.5 more per dish on the menu than any other Cantonese style restaurant.  The portions were decent with us packing leftovers to take home but ervice was less than satisfactory

As a precausion please be careful with parking tickets in the plaza after hours.  Let’s just say that when we walked over to Timmie’s for an after meal coffee we came back to find a nice piece of yellow paper on our windshield.

  1. I agree, I think this place is over priced.

  2. Overpriced and I’m pretty sure they use msg because I was VERY thirsty after eating there.
