In Hong Kong, you’re bound to walk past several shops with siew yuk (roast pork), char siew (barbecue roast pork), roast goose and roast chicken hanging in the window display. Mei treated rif and I to a meal of roast goose and siew yuk at Tai Hing at Causeway Bay, along with a few other good nosh later that night.
The siew yuk (5-star roast pork) looked good from the display and judging by the number of tables tucking into that dish, I had high expectations. It was pretty good – crisp, crackly skin and the pork was nicely seasoned. But I feel it could have done with more fat.
Remember to specify for the roast goose leg as that’s the best part, to me at least. Alas, I was quite disappointed with the roast goose (HKD56 per portion) as the skin wasn’t crisp enough.
This underwhelmed the overall experience, as the meat was juicy, rich and tender. Maybe we were a tad late that night — 8pm, for the goose might have been left out for long.
We added HKD19 to make the meal a set and it came with a bowl of tasty soup and a drink. I was told Yung Kee serves better roast goose, so I’m aiming to try that one when I visit Hong Kong next.
Thanks Mei, for the treat! :)

Verdict: I found the siew yuk pretty good. Wasn’t that into the roast goose though.
