CONGEE VILLAGE - Chinese Restaurant

My Chinese hairdresser recommended this restaurant to me and the more I come back, the more I like the food I order.

Congee Village has many individual rooms for private parties.  It is reasonably priced and conveniently located on a main road on Allen Street just south of Delancey.

Although they serve good congee, they have an array of authentic Chinese dishes that I like.  It is also child-friendly.
This restaurant is located closer to the Lower East side.  Currently they have 2 restaurants within a block away.  They are planning to have a branch in Queens.  'Heard from the grapevine that the main Chef in charge is on 100 Allen Street branch.
The main entrance in the main floor has an interesting setting as you can see.

I like eating in the private raised "hut" where it offers a sectioned area with outdoor atmosphere.

Here are the dishes you can order at very reasonable prices:

I highly recommend one of the dishes served in this bamboo with special rice mixed with either mushrooms, chicken, frogs legs - and 3 other choices in the menu.

Chinese spinach vegetables on the left is my recommendation for vegetables or their pea shoots in garlic.

On the right is the clam dish if you are looking for something different for seafood

This is a "Must" order - their version of fried chicken.  Light crisp skin and very juicy with plenty of garlic slices.
