One of the luxuries of being on vacation is having the time to enjoy breakfast. Even better if it's a breakfast you don't often get to enjoy. And even better is because you've had a lie-in, there's no breakfast rush, since everyone else is having lunch.
Shing Kee is one of those places that is a throwback to the good old days when breakfast meant having the traditional goodies. No juice, fruit, yogurt or coffee. And the slight wait outside the shop at 2pm in the afternoon is testament that people still hanker for that bit of nostalgia.
This version is really almost reduced to 98% fluid, with bits of rice grain you might break down without any chewing. The fluid has hints of Fu Chok (腐竹), bean curd sheets which they throw into the pot to cook the congee with to give it a distinct yellow hue and flavor.

But, this place is all about the nostalgia. Nothing to it. The food isn't spectacular but just good old-fashioned brekkie items we used to wake up to as kids. Yes, the good old days..
