Hong Kong Tasteem (8) - Chinese Breakfast, Congee and ZhaLiang

in tasteem •  19 days ago  (edited)


Time to introduce food! I usually have breakfast at home, but today I went outside for breakfast. So let me try a traditional cantonese breakfast: congee and ZhaLiang.



Congee is one of the most traditional food in China since 4000 years ago. It is a porridge of rice with different foods as ingredients. In China, we have different style of congees in different region. In Hong Kong (Cantonese), rice is boiled completely to break down and the congee is fairly think and white. It’s one of the most common congee in Hong Kong: congee with pork and century eggs.



A bowl of congee is not enough for me so I ordered a ZhaLiang also. What is ZhaLiang? You should know Chinese rice needle roll and Chinese fried dough. Zhaliang is a mix of the two. In 1940, Guangzhou was invaded by Japan. People were poor. So Restaurants in Guangzhou mixed the two dishes and let people to enjoy both dishes in cheaper price. Now, ZhaLiang is spread all over Cantonese community.



The breakfast costed me HK$36. Cheap but good! Delicious foods are not only in expensive restaurants. Check the small shops around you. You will be surprised!
