Plump, juicy and tender meat which comes with the crispiest skin with a layer of delicious fats and served with an addictive plum sauce, roast goose is a dish which has been perfected over generations.
Numerous roast goose restaurants in Hong Kong serve the traditional dish, but only a select few are truly top-notch.
Hidden just a short journey from Tuen Mun Road in Sham Tseng, you’ll find Yue Kee Roast Goose Restaurant which has been around since 1958 and it is one of the oldest roast goose restaurants in Hong Kong.
A city brimming with street food, restaurants that boast long histories and more, Hong Kong’s food scene is colossal in terms of its expansive selection and years of heritage and culture (both local and foreign) injected into each dish be it the humble char siew bao or the European-influenced macaroni and scrambled eggs combo.
When in Hong Kong, eat as the locals do. Not only will you save much more on dining, but you’ll also come to realise that Hong Kong is known for way more than just dim sum and wonton noodles. Here are 16 local foods in Hong Kong to try to say that you’ve truly been there.
Talk about Roast Goose in Hong Kong and everyone would think of the usual names—Kam’s Roast Goose, Yat Lok Roast Goose, Yung Kee Restaurant etc.
But Joy Hing’s Roasted Meat is hardly at the top of mind. It is a shame because this humble eatery in Wanchai actually has one of the best roast geese in Hong Kong. And the service isn’t as atrocious as that of Yat Lok’s.
A meal at Joy Hing always pleases and it is one pit stop we’d always make in Hong Kong for an affordable and very heavenly roast goose.
