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. On Wednesday (16 December 2015), the city’s highest court rejected a request – by Ronald Kam, one of the sons of the restaurant’s founder - to extend a liquidation deadline which was set to expire.

Everyone in Hong Kong knows Yung Kee Goose Restaurant for two reasons – their delicious roast meats and its ongoing family feud. The infamous fight over the restaurant’s ownership had reached a dramatic climax when the Court of Final Appeal released a statement announcing that Yung Kee might possibly be wound up. The fate of Yung Kee will be sealed in 26 days and only an agreement amongst the descendants can prevent it from being auctioned.
So everyone associates Yung Kee with the best roast goose in Hong Kong. But do you know about Kam’s Roast Goose at Hennesy Road in Wan Chai?
Said to be the up and coming brand, Kam’s Roast Goose is actually owned by the Kam family too! We will get back to this story in a bit, because more importantly, we have heard so much about how Kam’s Roast Goose is way better than Yung Kee.
Of course, we had to make a trip down to develop our own conclusion. So, is Kam’s Roast Goose really better than internationally acclaimed Yung Kee’s?
