It 's back!!! After, I don't know how long, maybe five months, Congee Noodle House is open again. It doesn't look much different, some new cabinets, a fish tank, a new door and some new soya sauce holders. After talking to the waiter, I found out that the major renovation was the kitchen. I am still wondering what the staff did for five months. That is a long time to be not working.

Congee Noodle House is one of my favorite cheap Chinese restaurants in the area and is open late.

We got in the restaurant at 12:30am, and quickly ordered our late night feast. We ordered a half order of duck, an oyster omelet, spicy shrimp and a bucket of rice.
The duck (9.00) was nice and tasty, just as I remembered it, the spicy shrimp ($6.50) was tasty deep fried goodness, and the oyster omelet which I usually love was not as tasty as I expected. The oysters were really salty and I do not think I will order this dish again.

Overall, I am glad they are open again. I was getting worried. This is my favorite local spot for cheap Chinese food.

If my husband is not so crazy about their congee, I'd never go to this place. It's dirty, dirty dirty. Even with the renovation, after about two months, it's as bad as it was before the reno. They had major rodent infestation and I saw the pest control guys trying to close "all" the holes and the kitchen staff to close their back doors....no such luck! I just eat their congee, their donuts,and make sure I don't touch anything and never go to their washroom. Their waitresses know us by sight since we eat there at least once a fortnight so we were always served promptly. Congee and their Chinese donuts are the only food we like, the rest is greasy. BTW, I'm Chinese originally from HK so I know what I am talking about!
