Yat Lok Restaurant – Hong Kong, China
Rating: 1 (not edible) to 5 (food heaven!): A Solid 5
Hey Food Travelers – Put it on your “MUST Eats in HK” list!!!
The best Roast Goose ever! And I’m usually a roast duck fan… what’s the difference you ask? Roast duck is usually slightly “leaner” than goose (WHAT?! How?! I know!). Also, I find roast goose to have a much more fragrant flavor over duck. Yat Lok does not disappoint, the fat to meat ratio is perfect, the goose has a sweet linger flavor and when combined with their homemade plum sauce, your palate will implode in a good way! Let the yumminess linger and take a sip of their lemon/sugar water… it helps to refresh your taste buds.
2017 Michelin Star – well earned!
Climb those darn hills, tiny walkable “sidewalks”… and watch your steps!
Tiny shop, all tables are up for grabs, share, squish, and Do Not Attempt to “hog” any space w/ your purse or murse…! Don’t be surprise by the shouting… it’s a norm in HK, Cantonese is loud AF (in general… lol); there’s usually a long line, so come before the lunch crowd (11:40am got us 2 tables of 4!)
Menu w/ English and other specialty on the walls or be like me – just order their must eats!! – order Roast Goose (can be order by 1/4 or 1/2 or whole!), Roast Pork (ask for half lean/half fat) over rice, over lai-fun, and chow down!
