Heart-warming Cantonese Congee

It has been a little over a month since the popular Mui Kee Cantonese congee hit the sunny shores of Singapore, over at Casa Verde. Those who have yet to try these luscious bowls of silky-smooth congee can make their way down to the Singapore Botanic Gardens to have a first-hand taste of the delicious Mui Kee congee, which is made over a 5-hour preparation period, using recipes and cooking techniques that have been passed down through 3 generations. Highly recommended would be the signature fish belly congee, which is best loved for its fragrant accompanying wok-hei taste.

Are you up Pho the challenge?

3 bowls of pho in 20 mins? Hands up all those who think they can do that! The Ultimate Pho-Natic Challenge saw 8 contestants, 5 men and 3 ladies, battle it out as they aimed to devour as much of NamNam’s signature pho within 20 mins. The competition was held on 17 August over in Jakarta at NamNam Noodle Bar in Senayan City, in conjuction with Indonesia’s Independence Day. After a highly charged session, the top 3 winners emerged – each having polished off 2 bowls completely, and with just a little left in the third. It was a ball of fun, but we recommend you do not try this at home!

Introducing Mui Kee – A Taste of Traditional Cantonese Heritage

Fans of congee, this one is for you. Cantonese porridge concept, Mui Kee, will be making its first venture into the Singapore food market on 30th June, with a 6-month long pop-up at Casa Verde. A third generation congee concept from Hong Kong owned by 34-year-old Mr Pierre Choi (affectionately known as Ah Tung), Mui Kee is best known for its delicious, heart-warming bowls of Cantonese congee made using traditional recipes and cooking methods.

What makes the taste of Mui Kee’s congee so unique? Besides the fact that only fresh ingredients are used, with no artificial flavouring or monosodium glutamate (MSG) added, every bowl of congee goes through an arduous 5-hour long preparation process before being served. However, the effort is definitely worth it – the resultant congee base boasts a delicious, silky-smooth texture and aromatic flavour that will have you coming back for more.

For the pop-up, diners can select from 8 different types of congee, each served with a side of fried dough fritters and century egg. Highly recommended would be Mui Kee’s signature fish belly congee, featuring dace fish sourced from Shunde Province sautéed with rice wine, and cooked in a special method that gives it a fragrant wok hei taste. Those who are already thinking of making it your new breakfast go-to, a Mui Kee loyalty card will also be introduced to reward frequent diners, with complimentary side dishes and porridge sets up for redemption.
