almost too good: rice noodle-wrapped fritters with sesame and hoisin

congee, sesame and hoisin

Congee is so good, as you probably know. If you’re no stranger to it, you probably enjoy congee with fried dough fritters for dipping, yes? But have you had the fritters wrapped in rice noodles? They’re my favourite. They usually come with sesame paste and hoisin sauce for an added sweetness and umami hit. It’s almost too much of a good thing–the kind I eat too fast, too greedily because I want to taste everything again again again!

Sometimes, sometimes, I even pass up chili oil to enjoy it just as pictured above–that should tell you something about how good an experience this is.
