Join gossiping uncles and Gen-Y hipsters for a little Cantonese soul food at Ah Chiang’s. The star turn at this retro corner kopitiam (coffeeshop) is fragrant, charcoal-fired congee (a rice-based porridge). While it’s all soul-coaxingly good, don't go past the raw sliced fish, delectably drizzled with sesame oil. Do not lick the bowl.
