What do you know about crazy Chinese food restaurants? You don't know shit if you haven't eaten at Congee Village at 207 Bowery. It's as if you put your neighborhood Chinese spot through a kaleidoscope and then put LSD on top. And added some squid porridge.

Until Congee Village gets permission from the Department of Health, entire generations may not know about this profound and important experience. The got served with 55 violation points during a recent inspection, effectively closing their doors. Gothamist reports that the establishment will possibly reopen on January 23. Cross your fingers.
