Congee Queen has another location and this one is just as good as the others. This one is a bit hard to find but it is located on the South side of Centrepoint Mall by the No Frills. The place itself is rather large and can accompany any size table from just the two of you to a larger group of 10+. The service here is actually on the friendlier side and I've always thought they were nicer than most Chinese restaurants.
We had the Lobster with E-Fu Noodle, Crab and Seaweed Salad, and a Roast Duck/Roast Pork Rice Combo. The Crab and Seaweed Salad was to serve as a small appetizer, but the plate was huge! The crab and seaweed mixture was complemented with julienned cucumber as well as some crisp. The crab meat and seaweed were plentifully and I liked how it all worked together.
Lobster in E-Fu noodle is a favorite of the gf as she loves how the thick e-fu noodle soaks in all the lobster broth and flavor. The lobster meat itself is somewhat in the background, but there is a whole 1lb lobster for you to enjoy regardless.
The Roast duck was good as well as the roast pork. The skin on the roast pork is crisp and they usually do a good job with their BBQ. You could always find better and cheaper outside of the Congee Queen chain, but it is nice to know that you can order them here. The portion sizes are no joke so come hungry.
This new location is just like the others, so no complaints here. There actually isn't much Chinese food around the Yonge/Steeles area, so it's kind of nice having this one around. If you're looking for some good meals at good prices, this is definitely a nice spot to go.
