This was our most adventurous meal of the trip, for we travelled entirely by bus (big and small) to reach this place 😛
There were quite a few restaurants selling roast goose, but we had our minds set on this place 深井裕記.
So many choices, but not enough stomach space, so we had to settled:
- Regular lower (i.e. drumstick portion, HK$165)
- Poached Goose Giblets (HK$90)
- Poached Chinese Cabbage and Jinhua Ham with Chicken Broth Soup in Casserole (HK$88)
Gotta say that the the long trip down was worth it! The goose meat was tender and the skin crispy, and the Chinese cabbage was really sweet!

This was a really tiny restaurant that could probably sit about 40 customers, so it was no surprise that the queue outside was really quite long. Perhaps it was also not a surprise that there were many Singaporeans in the queue, either waiting for seats or taking out… haha!
We got ourselves a queue ticket just before 2pm, and figured that we should probably grab a bite elsewhere first, before coming back to wait for our turn. And we remembered seeing 檀島咖啡餅店 Honolulu Coffee Shop on our way walking here… 🙂
We managed to enter the restaurant at 3:10pm, and that was because quite a few others who decided not to wait after all.
We made our way to Tung Chung 東涌 to do some last minute shopping, and also to stay here for the night, so as to catch our early morning 7am flight the next day. It was dinner time by the time we were done shopping, and so out we went looking for food!
The dinner buffet at the hotel did not really appeal to us, so we went over to the food court in the outlet mall, and 點好味點心燒味專門店 Hao Chi Cantonese Dim Sum looked like an affordable option!
We ordered a Roasted Goose BBQ platter (HKD 168+10% service charge) and a Boiled Seasonal Vegetables (HKD 20). We thought that the chicken and char siew was quite good, but of course, the goose paled in comparison 😛 The vegetables was standard fare.
Not too bad as a last meal for the trip, given that there were not really that many options, and we look forward to our next trip 🙂

Big signboard so that you won’t miss
We had read about the Top Five Roast Goose in Hong Kong and that the roasted goose here at Yat Lok was really good!
And so, we were very focused: 馳名脆皮燒鵝下庄 Quarter Goose with Drumstick (HKD 150), and 腐乳通菜 Kang Kong with Fermented Beancurd (HKD 25). No rice for us, because we wanted to fill our tummies with the meat, and the vegetables was meant to ease the guilt (and greese), just a little 😛
Beautiful roast goose
The vegetables was very refreshing and we loved the fermented beancurd sauce! But the star was really the perfectly balanced fatty, meaty, juicy roasted goose!
Not only was the skin crispy-good, the meat was also very juicy and tender! It was so much better than that famous Yung Kee 鏞記 (which incidentally is only one street away)!
This has now become our MUST come place (besides Kam Wah Cafe) whenever we will be in Hong Kong in future!
