Sheng Kee Congee
If you have flexible working hours and fancy a late but local Hong Kong breakfast, head to this favoured tea house chain after 11am for a steaming bowl of fresh congee. Best known for its beef and carp congee served with chopped spring onion and ginger, you should order up a side dish of crunchy fried dipping bread to ramp up the substance and lip smacking. Make sure you get there early to grab a seat as it fills up quickly.
