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.
