LUNCH AT YUE KEE ROAST GOOSE RESTAURANT, SHAM TSENG, N.T., HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 1 - Lunch

Our Hong Kong hosts have already planned where to take us for our first lunch in Hong Kong, especially to have us taste their well-known roast goose. So here we were at Sham Tseng (Deep Well) Yue Kee Roast Goose Restaurant. It is located along one of the narrow lane behind the main road in Sham Tseng, N.T., Hong Kong.

We were all seated comfortably and ready to taste our first Hong Kong meal. With my old faithful camera in hand, I was ready to feed my camera with all the delicious Hong Kong food. We were definitely hungry after 6 to 7 hours since our early breakfast at KLIA2!
First, I want to thank everyone of my group members and of course our hosts for being so understanding and patient with me and my camera. Right from the start, my friend introduced me as a blogger and they patiently waited for me to snap photos of every dish. They made sure my camera has been fed before anyone of us could partake of the food! Praise the Lord! I am indeed so touched and grateful! And our hosts even did their best in introducing the dishes to me.
First dish was Angled Loofah vegetable (Seng Kua in Cantonese) cooked with minced meat, preserved/salted vegetable and egg. I can't remember whether it was normal egg or century egg.

Hong Kong is famous for Roast Goose. One whole roast goose divided into two plates. My first time tasting Hong Kong delicious roast goose.

To some this roast goose is still not considered the best in Hong Kong.

Next was the Goose Innards dish, consisting of wings, gizzards, goose web feet, intestines (centre) and the top I am not sure what it was.

Special Soup, very flavourful, but I have to skim off some of the oil from the top.

The remaining ingredients of the soup. We were too full to eat any of these.

Green Amaranth vegetable with both salted and century egg in superior soup.

Braised Goose Intestine on top of Bean Sprouts. Compared to Ipoh's fat, short and crunchy bean sprouts, these were thin, long and stringy bean sprouts. I have to remove the fat first before eating the intestine. One piece is enough for me.

Deep Fried Squids on Raw Purple Cabbage.

Deep Fried Szechuan Style Malat Har Kau (Big Prawns) and dried chili.

This was what remained after a hearty and delicious lunch for 12 people.
The front portion of Yue Kee Roast Goose Restaurant.

Big live grouper fishes swimming in the fish tank.

The restaurant business card with address and contact numbers.

If you are interested, here is the layout and direction written in Chinese.

After lunch, we were taken to the apartments to keep our bags and rest awhile. Our group of 9 people was separated into two groups. One apartment to host 6 people and another to host 3 people. As you know the apartments in Hong Kong are not very spacious and we were blessed with a comfortable apartment.
This was the view that greeted me from our bedroom window.

The aparments and tall rise buildings are well planned and equipped with recreation gardens, playgrounds and facilities for their residents.

Above all, clothe yourselves with love,

which binds us all together in perfect harmony.

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts.

For as members of one body you are called to live in peace.

And always be thankful.

(Colossians 3:15, New Living Translation-NLT)

  1. Nice lunch. Can see that the food on the table almost swept clean, must be delicious. Roast goose looks juicy but the soup is a bit that oily.

  3. I feel full just looking at the food. It is so different than what we are used to here. They use every parts of the goose unlike us. I can only eat a little plate of food and I feel full. It looks like you had fun with your group.
    Have a nice day Nancy.

  6. I love the Deep Fried Squids and the Deep Fried Szechuan Style Malat Har Kau (big prawns) but you lost me with the Goose Innards dish. Here I almost lost my stomach. Sorry Nancy. After seeing the table, I wondered what does a dinner like this cost? I wondered.
    Thank you for such an interesting dinner my friend. See ya.

    1. Mun, I was trying to recall whether it was century egg or normal egg. I think the century egg was for the Green Amaranth dish.

  25. Hi Nancy,
    A hearty lunch indeed with good food (but minus those innards dishes... hee hee!) I've tasted HK roast goose ... BIG ! bigger than roast duck when I had short trip there some years ago. I'm drooling over that plate of Deep Fried Szechuan Style Malat Har Kau.
    Aha! HK dim sum is a must.
    Looks like you enjoy your HK trip :D

    1. Thanks, Karen. We both are not lovers of innards dishes..lol! Yes, yes, we had the dim sum, definitely not to be missed. Will be posting up the dim sum too.

  26. I think I can try all of those dishes except for the Goose Innards dish (consisting of wings, gizzards, goose web feet, intestines) and the Braised Goose Intestine.

    1. Hi Lili, I myself am not keen on the innards as well but I managed to try a bit of everything. At least for this time, I considered myself quite adventurous, willing to taste whatever was laid before me.

  27. The goose-y dishes look so special! I love the way they 'partitioned' the innards separately. (Ya ya I'm a fan of innards)

    Everyone's beansprouts sure kalah to Ipoh ones hehe.

    1. Oh, so you are a fan of innards? Then I am sure you would love this dish. I am okay with this dish but not the fatty intestines dish!
