This roast goose is so nice. The funny joke is that everyone wants the drumstick, but you only get two drumsticks when you buy a goose. They handle the demand for drumstick really well. The secret is if you order a half goose, they always give you an extra drumstick. If you know the lady well, you can order the extra drumstick. That’s why I buy a half goose, then I get the extra drumstick on top. I like it on rice, my girlfriend Canny likes it with noodles and the broth. I like it with the rice because you have this sauce, marinated with the goose flavors. When you put the goose with the sweet sauce, all together I really like the combination. I think they’re doing very well. I love the lady at the cashier. I park across the restaurant all the time, and I talk to her sometimes. She’s grumpy, but I get her. If I were in her position, I’d be the same! Dealing with people every day, they all want to push you, “give me a table, give me a table”... But she’s very funny.

A mom-and-pop shop boasting a Michelin star, Yat Lok serves incredible Cantonese cuisine from its humble quarters. It’s also hailed as one of the go-to places for the best roast goose in Hong Kong. It is deliciously roasted, its skin perfectly crisp—great on its own or as topping with chicken noodle! Famed for their no-nonsense interiors and service as much as their Roasted Goose, Yat Lok was already a household name even before Michelin came along and remains so to this day.

You haven’t truly experienced Hong Kong without a bite of roast goose. With countless spots that all have their own version of goose, Yat Lok’s family-run restaurant stands out for their crisp and tasty meat—which is worth a dip in the plum sauce. Found in the Central District and a proud recipient of one Michelin Star, locals and tourists flock for goose leg served with rice or a hearty bowl of noodles.

As the original Honeymoon Dessert shop, the Sai Kung branch has developed into a bilingual haven to satiate your sweet tooth. The service and the interior design are very traditionally local (despite having an English menu), but the food is diverse. The signature yellow bowls of the old days are moving towards trendy glass jars filled with quirky flavours, such as the Durian pancake, New Guinea sago and Hong Kong favourites like grass jelly. It may be wallet-friendly, but it sure isn't diet-friendly!

A day in Hong Kong is never complete without the well-loved egg tart. Tai Cheong Bakery is where the most flavorful egg tarts are found. The bakehouse's recipe is famous for its thick, creamy egg custard with just the right amount of sweetness. Visit their branches early to enjoy the tarts fresh from the oven!

Aside from dumplings and xiao long bao, Mak Kee is also a go-to place to eat golden fried Curry Fish Balls drizzled with their tasty sauce. Even though it's a simple food stall, there are chairs and tables on the sidewalk for customers to get comfy while enjoying their orders.
