A Quick Review of Xie Migao 謝米糕

Xiemigao from the street.

Xiè Mǐgāo 謝米糕 is a famous restaurant in central and a personal favourite of mine. This was simple local food done well! Unfortunately this place has since closed so these photos are here only as a reminder of many delicious meals consumed in the past.

The food at Xiemigao. It might not look like much but it tastes great!

Like most people I always get a bowl of mǐgāo 米糕 (literally “rice cake”; really just rice with some meat and pickled cucumber), breaded pork with ginger, soup, and a tea egg.

The menu and hours. Notice the signature at the top?
