It hasn’t been an easy journey for Melbourne mums Kim and Suong, from leaving their families behind to unexpected hospital trips.

But after tonight’s episode of My Kitchen Rules it seemed all the pressure and anxiety has paid off for these hard-working mums as they secured their spot in the semi finals alongside Italian brothers Josh and Nic and lovebirds Alex and Emily.

It was thanks to their killer dishes, in particular their seafood congee that wowed the judges.

“I’ve had a lot of congees before, yours was one of the best I’ve had, simply gorgeous.”

“It was phenomenal ladies,” Pete confessed.

“The amount of flavours you packed in there was unbelievable, for me though the star of the dish was that seafood, it was cooked to perfection.”
