yat lok was like top 5 in most reviews, and yung kee is too expensive. i was not motivated to try kam’s roast goose at wan chai as it was usually out of the way & not very interesting for me after reading some reviews.
for today we decided to try chan kee roast goose 深圳陈记烧鹅 at mongkok.
it was just 1 MTR stop from prince station where our hotel metropark is located. anyway we decided to just walk from metropark along shanghai street. not difficult to locate chan kee.
it was past 1pm. no need to queue but restaurant quite full. we managed to get a squeezy tiny 2pax table.
choices a bit more limited when just 2pax ordering.
anyhow we decided to order 1/2 roast goose HK$230 & 1 meal – chicken & roast pork combo rice plate HK$52.
the roast goose was good, flavourful.
we commented (to ourselves) on entering restaurant that the bird was small & looked more like duck so we asked if they still had goose. reply was “yes, how many you want to order?” ..didn’t sound too pleased right?
the 1/2 goose looked tiny. luckily taste was good, and quite nice with the plum sauce 梅酱
very squeezy. there was no place to put of table, so had to carry plate in one hand & tae photo.
roast pork quite nice & the poached chicken 贵妃鸡 was nice with the ginger scallion sauce which was a bit salty & nice for that.
i must make the sauce myself…quite easy i think..
we enjoyed the lunch, roast goose, roast pork & chicken. not cheap though
lunch was HK$282. like S$49 for 2pax. well we come hong kong to eat roast goose, so it’s money we want to spend. better than going to kam’s in singapore to eat 1/2 roast duck at higher price i guess.
chan kee supposed to be among top 5 best roast goose in HK. roast goose was indeed quite good but didn’t feel much special…
