Tai Hing Congee and Noodle House is a hole in the wall type
of restaurant located on Park road across from Richmond Center.
They specialize in, you guessed it, congee and noodles!
When I come here, the only two items I ever get are the Homemade Style Noodle in Soup ($6.35) and their congees. FYI, the homemade style noodle in soup has a lot of ingredients that might scare a lot of people with conservative palates. But I’ll talk about that later... :P
Their congees are always very delicious and it comes with a side dish (your choice of fried rice noodle, fried noodle, rice noodle roll, or dough fritter and rice noodle roll) too.
The noodle in soup comes with a drink and I got the standard hot Milk Tea.
The Homemade Style Congee ($5.35) is always super tasty and contains an abundance of ingredients such as sliced fish cake, squid, pork skin, meat, and a bunch of other random stuff.
For the side dish, I ordered the steamed rice noodle roll. If I’m not mistaken, they make it fresh which is great because it makes a HUGE difference.
I totally drowned my rice noodles in peanut sauce, sweet sauce, and sesame seeds! They give you the whole bottle so what the heck. :D
Now this is what I was looking forward to when coming to Tai Hing! Their ‘Homemade Style Noodle in Soup’ contains...wait for it... pig’s blood, pig’s intestine, fried pig’s skin, and marinated radishes. :D By now you should either be completely repulsed by this or suddenly craving it. :P I am (obviously) the latter and writing this makes me want another one right now!
The coagulated pig’s blood did not taste as bouncy as I would’ve liked but was good nonetheless.
The oil noodles that it came with were al dente and tasted great with the flavourful broth. I highly recommend getting this as this is their signature dish!
If you don’t mind a really ugly looking exterior/interior and snappy service, give this place a try because the food is actually pretty decent and inexpensive. Their congees are less intimidating, so if organs gross you out, that is always a good option. :)
