Yung Kee Restaurant, Hong Kong
I must have passed by this place a million times in the past (32 Wellington St, 2522-1624), and heard about how great it was by a million different people. But it was in such a convenient location that I never bothered to come down here to get their famous Cantonese roast goose, figuring that I'd always get a chance some other time. Today was finally that other time.
I can now see what all of the fuss is about. The skin was of course crispy, but the fat underneath was so complementary to the meat that all of the bone fragments didn't bother me as much as they normally do. I didn't even touch that sweet plum sauce, lest it cover up the natural taste. This menu also featured a number of other dishes that apparently have received all sorts of accolades, but we didn't try any of those. The goose alone was good enough.
