New Restaurant Opening: Secret Congee to Open in Wallingford


The secret is out, Secret Congee is opening this Wednesday in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle on 4405 Wallingford Ave N, Seattle, WA. The build out is a takeout spot located inside of Juisala juice shop and will have no dine-in seating/service.

Secret Congee is authentically influenced by the East/South East Asia style of cooking. In this style of cooking, congee is not bland. Each bowl comes with a variety of creative toppings and ingredients which bring out hidden delicious flavors and aromas creating that unique mouth-watering effect.

The restaurant will offer a rotating menu of specialized congee (rice porridge) Slow-Cooked Beef and Kimchi Congee, Tom Yum Shrimp Congee, Miso roasted Kabocha squash (Vegan/GF) and other incredible menu items.

To help with sustainability, Secret Congee uses organic meats and sustainable seafood. Takeout bowls are 100% compostable and its covering lid is 100% recyclable. The spoon/napkin and its cellulose outer wrapper is also 100% compostable.

Congee is like a canvas for chefs. It allows for both traditional and innovative menus. It’s a delicious, comfort food that deserves a lot more attention than it’s currently getting.

The team behind Congeez which was located in Chinatown have found a new location to bring this dish to more Seattleites.
