Yung Kee Restaurant
G/F., 32-40 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong
2522 1624

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.

The food here is certainly expensive since this is an established restaurant with a long history. Personally, I wouldn’t come back for the roast goose per se but its other dishes may be worth a try.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
