travelled with this fun RI group (6 of us) to hong kong to eat & hike 10-14jan2016. ^^
i guess that was representative of our priority – eat to hike to eat…lol. ^^
we were staying at royal plaza at mongkok, checked in by 3pm+ & found fu kee congee 富记粥品 at fa yun street 花园街quite easily.
place was quite crowded. the servers were efficient & polite enough. 🙂
we ordered 1/2 roast goose 烧鹅. it was excellent!
after that we had roast goose at yat lok and tao hueng, & then at fu kee 富记again 2days later.
for now, this is the best roast goose in hong kong for me, though most of my friends still line up behind yat lok. 🙂
the goose was so flavourful & tender. it was a bit oilier than the others, but i liked that also, i think it was the most flavourful.
the char siew i would think was a disaster!
didn’t think you could have a bad char siew in hong kong, especially when the 烧腊chef produced such excellent roast goose.
but we had char siew again at yat lok & it was almost as bad.
this one here was tasteless & dry. the one at yat lok was more moist but equally tasteless!
my conclusion unfortunately – don’t take char siew in hong kong…Singapore hawker stall char siew just so good! 🙂
the congee were just excellent here! the best but where congee is concerned, there are endless supplies of good congee in hong kong.
it was so smooth & sweet,
both the mixed innards congee 及第粥 & the liver + sliced beef congee were excellent too!
the dry beef horfun干炒牛河 had good wok hae, otherwise nothing special – a dish i can do without.
it’s not easy to find chicken better than singapore’s hainanese chicken rice, yet recently i had very good com ga (chicken rice) in hoi an, vietnam; and now again here in hong kong! just perfect!
it was beautiful going with the ginger spring onion sauce. 🙂
we had a fish belly vegetable soup. very good & enjoyable too.
quite super that we were treated to such outstanding hong kong fares on the first day of our arrival. couldn’t have asked for more la… ^^
after the “late lunch”, 1 friend who was staying at the different hotel, found that his hotel was just directly opposite 富记粥品. how very convenient! 🙂
the meal was HK$553 for 6 hungry guys. 1/2roast goose 烧鹅 was HK$220. we could have done away with the char siew & added couple more cooked dishes. 🙂
