On days where I just want to retreat from the world, Gum Kuo is where I go for my ultimate comfort foods: congee and stir-fried bitter melon. Their congee is thick, flavorful, and rich with chunks of tender meat and seafood. If bitter melon isn’t your dish of choice, they’ve also got chow fun and rice plates. Enjoy any/all of this with a platter of barbecue pork, Hainan chicken, or roast duck, which you’ll see hanging in the window as you walk in.
