Yung Kee Restaurant, HK

YUNG KEE RESTAURANT in Hong Kong’s Central needs no introduction. What began as a humble “dai pai dong” (hawker stall) in 1942 has grown to become an award-winning restaurant. Among others, it was awarded 1 Michelin Star in The Michelin Guide – Hong Kong / Macau 2011 and ranked No. 12 of Asia’s Top 20 Finest Restaurant by The Miele Guide 2010.

Famous for its specialty the roast goose, one meal there is never enough. We personally know of people who hand-carried these succulent geese on their flight home, thus earning its nickname “the flying goose”!

We made a dinner reservation there on this date in 2010. Dinner came and we tucked in. I was simply too busy enjoying dinner I didn’t take any pictures! Except a shot of M savouring the starter of century egg and afterwards, dessert of fruits. Photos won’t do justice to the taste anyway, one has to eat to appreciate it.

All eagerly awaiting dinner…

These were the only two shots of food that I took…M savouring the starter of century egg with pickled ginger (L) and fruits dessert (R). The rest of dinner satisfactorily filled our stomachs.

A consolation was that we had a picture with the owner Mr. Kinsen Kam (Director and General Manager of Yung Kee Restaurant Group Ltd) who always took the time to stop by and say hello the numerous times we were there. Sadly, we learnt that he passed away on 5 Oct 2012 at the age of 66.

M and A by a little pond on the ground floor; the neon-lighted signboard; one can never get enough of these succulent roast geese seen through a glass window near the entrance.
