To continue the theme of returns, this post is about our favourite place to eat goose in Hong Kong - Yat Lok. Because one can't help but return to Yat Lok over and over again just to eat the glorious goose. It's on the Hong Kong Michelin Guide's "Bib Gourmand" list but that's not what took us there. It was Jess who stumbled across it by chance and thought it looked like a place we needed to try. She was right too! So tasty and perfectly cooked, even better if you can get your jaws on a prized goose leg. So tasty that Jack ate there twice in one week on her first ever trip to Hong Kong last year. So tasty that when were in Hong Kong for a week in March we ate there thrice!
It's only a small place in Central so weekday lunchtime gets busy - try to eat outside of these times to avoid the lines and to have a more relaxed meal. Apparently the char siu (bbq pork) is good too but somehow we didn't try it as roast goose trumps pork any day!
|Spot the difference - "off peak" vs the tail end of weekday lunch. Love the big chopping board!|
|Roast goose leg with rice noodles - this is Yat Lok's signature dish and rightly so|
|Why hello there!|
|Half a roast goose makes for a delicious lunch for 3|
|Jess' last goose before leaving Hong Kong - roast goose on rice|
|Jack's last goose before leaving Hong Kong - goose leg and milk tea - yum!|
