as we had planned, after dimsum at dimdimsum at tung choi street in mongkok, we took the MTR to central, exit D2, and walked to yatlok roast goose 一乐烧鹅 at stanley street.
the last time i was here was with my RI friends one year ago on 11.1.2016. that time the overall dining experience was dented by the hygiene factors of long queueing time, squeezy, wet floors, and very very poor char siew & siew yoke etc.
this time we arrived at 4pm.
place was maybe 60% full so we had our table immediately.
we each ordered honey lime drink HK$18, nice drink not cheap.
& dumplings 水饺 – 7 pieces for HK$50 to share. this dumplings 水饺 was good as before.
1/2 roast goose price has gone up from HK$250 in jan2016 to HK$280 today.
thankfully it was very good in taste, very flavourful, skin crispy, oily yes but tasty & meat was tender, not overcooked or tough.
later that evening we had a roast goose at tao heung restaurant at tsmshatsui at a promo price of 1/2 roast goose at HK$118, which is like 40% plus the price at yatlok. & of course yung kee, which i refuse to go, charges even higher than yatlok.
still overall we all agree, the yatlok goose was better than tao heung! 🙂
overall price was like HK$410 or so, more than 2x our dimsum for quite small orders for 4pax.
we were happy though, & yat lok is a place i am still happy to come back again next time.
this trip though i did not bring my friends to fu kee congee 富记粥品 at fa yun street 花园街. maybe i should have but we sought of had what we needed of roast goose after 2 roast goose in a day, and another roast goose opposite our hotel next day for convenience.
next time i will go back to fu kee congee 富记粥品 at fa yun street 花园街.
