Goose at Yat Lok, Central, Hong Kong

I have read mix reviews about this place on openrice, some people have complained about the lack of service and the quality of food going down and not worth the price. However, I have been here three – four times the past three weeks and have not had any problems. Mind you, twice has been on the weekend and the other two was takeaway, so I didn’t have to wait during the busy period.

Came here first with my parents, we were shopping in Central for Dragon’s things, she needed a few warm clothes and containers for her pureed food. Unfortunately you can’t get goose anywhere in Sydney and I have to say besides pork it is one of my favourite meats. If it’s cooked correctly, it is tender and succulent.

Yat lok is known for their roast meats, goose, barbeque pork, roast chicken and the like, however, I have never ordered anything else besides the goose. My parents couldn’t go past the noodles with goose – egg noodles, which was cooked al dente and the goose was delicious. We didn’t order the goose leg, which we probably should have, but no doubt we did the next time we came.

I wanted rice, goose with rice and the goose was incredible! Not sure why I didn’t order the goose leg!

However after eating our individual dish with goose, we realised that we were not satisfied and wanted more. We ordered a serving of just goose – goose leg this time and THAT definitely satisfied our cravings.

The green vegetables with fermented tofu were great, but nothing to rave about. The goose is definitely the highlight. I have taken away goose leg with rice a couple of times, and it was great! I do advice to come become rush hour – the place is busy and most days there is a queue for people to come in. It’s not a big restaurant, but the turnover is quite quick!

Is it better than Yung Kee? I have a soft spot for Yung Kee, I really do like the restaurant, I know most people think that it is too tourist-y but I had my first goose here many years ago and is still by far my favourite place for goose. Yat Lok is pretty good I think, but it is in a different class!

    Such a pity that goose is so hard to find in Sydney. This version looks sensational – I can see why you have a soft spot for it after your first encounter here 🙂
