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.


Window display



Clever use of space


Siew Yuk (roast pork)


Crispy skin and tasty meat

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.


Tai Hing Roast Goose


Ask for the drumstick as the flesh is juicier and richer in flavour

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.


Soup of the day: Double boiled lotus soup


Salty lemonade


Mandarin orange with honey

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! :)

glorious-looking goose still, though. i’m sometimes peeved that at some restaurants in KL that have goose listed on their menu, they often say it’s unavailable for whatever reason, heh :D

Ya I find that very annoying. Might as well not put it in the menu right??

You would’ve had yummier roast goose (or anything else for that matter) if you were able to sit on the upper levels. Their service and food are better the higher level you’re on.

Thanks for the tip. I don’t know if there is an upper level for Tai Hing, but will certainly look out for it next time. :)
