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.

Hong Kong’s legendary Yung Kee Roast Goose Restaurant is set to close after the descendants failed to reach an agreement.
Back in November, Hong Kong’s Court of Final Appeal released a statement announcing that Yung Kee might possibly be wound up.
