Family Dinner at Congee Queen

5308 Highway 7 Suite 5 & 6 Markham, ON L3P1B9

I came here with my boyfriend and his family for dinner on our second night at Markham. Congee Queen was one of the restaurants that the concierge at the hotel recommended so we took her suggestion.

The restaurant is very spacious and has a very modern decor compared to other Chinese restaurants I've been to in Canada. The staff was super busy with getting out orders and serving customers.

We had a family style meal and these were the dishes we had -

Fried Bean Curd & Vegetables and Soy Sauce Chicken
The fried bean curd with vegetables was pretty good with lots of fried tofu and a nice assortment of vegetables - mushrooms, carrots, and yu choy! 

We ordered soy sauce chicken and it was very fresh and moist! I didn't quite understand the concept behind the scoop of peanuts though.

Minced Pork with Dry Fish & Green Beans
I really liked this dish. The green beans weren't soggy nor overcooked and had a nice crunch to it. It was one of my favorite dishes of the night.

Stir-Fried Clams with Black Bean Sauce
Clams with black bean sauce is one of my all-time favorite dishes, but the ones at Congee Queen didn't seem to have enough flavor or seasoning in it.

Pan-fried stuffed eggplant, tofu, and green pepper
We also had this dish and it looked really good, but too bad it was spicy so I couldn't eat it.

Szechuan Style Tiger Shrimp
This was another dish I didn't eat because it was spicy as well, so I don't have an opinion about this dish.

All in all, I felt the food was just decent and about average. In my opinion I felt the food wasn't too exciting and the menu was really your typical Chinese family style dinner. I think next time I return to Canada, I wouldn't want to come here because I would want to try other restaurants and food.
