Congee is Chinese rice porridge. A supremely simple comforting dish. It stretches a simple cup of rice and flavorful scraps to feed a family breakfast and is popular throughout Asia. I'm not sure what I find so appealing about what is basically a bowl of gruel.
I know there is better Chinese food to be had in the Plano area, but the allure of comfort food brought me into JS Chen Dim Sum and Barbecue. Though it was hardly morning, I settled in for a comforting bowl flavored with fish and preserved egg ( I ordered chicken and duck) and ribs, a perfect flavoring for the bland (in a good way) rice.
