Yung Kee Restaurant
G/F., 32-40 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong
So many websites and magazines have raved about this restaurant’s roast goose and so, I decided to find out for myself what all the hype is about.
I'm impressed by the size of the restaurant. There are 3 levels and the staff will ask you what you will be eating to determine which level you should go. I just told her I want to eat the goose and she directed us to the 2nd level (via lift!).
The Roast Goose (HKD$120+/SGD$21.80+) looks quite normal to me. Seriously, how do you differentiate a plate of goose from duck or chicken when it’s chopped up in pieces? Anyway, the meat was tender enough with the right amount of fats. My parents like the goose a lot but maybe because I’m not a meat lover, I’m rather indifferent to it.
Initially, I just wanted to try the roast goose but my mom said it’s embarrassing to order only one dish. So, we also tried the Braised Tofu (HKD$68+/SGD$12.30+). I like this! The gravy is not salty at all and the tofu are very big and soft.
Service was professional and cordial enough. Even though we were there well before lunch time, there were already quite a few diners in the restaurant.
