Sam's Congee Delight


Sam's Congee Delight is a purveyor of traditional Cantonese congee restaurant from Wong Sam.


Sam's Congee Delight was founded by Wong Sam in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong in 1966 as an open-air food stall (or Dai Pai Dong - 大排檔). In 1990, it was relocated to Mong Kok and transitioned into a full service restaurant when the first establishment was permanently closed as part of the Kwun Tong Revitalization Project. The tradition of Sam's Congee Delight continues today in Toronto after the Wong's family came to Canada in the 1990s.

Over the last 50 years, Sam’s Congee Delight served tens of thousands of customers with authentic and affordable wholesome meals, true to the traditional flavours of congee, rice rolls and the deep-fried doughs. Sam’s Congee Delight is currently located inside Markham’s Market Village, the design of the restaurant uniquely allows patrons to witness the art of handmade rice rolls and award-winning deep-fried doughs.

After 20+ years in business at the Market Village location, Sam's Congee Delight is officially closed on February 28, 2018. The restaurant is relocated to 7354 Woodbine Ave. on August 3, 2018. 

It is our pleasure to continue to serve you the most authentic taste of Hong Kong at Sam’s Congee Delight!
