While roast duck and chicken are fairly common, roast goose is a dish that is pretty hard to come by. However, within stones throw to each other, you can find three different places offering this dish at around Jalan Pasar in KL.

Not long ago, I checked out one of the stalls at the area by the name of Chen Chen Hong Kong Roast Goose.

Chen Chen Roast Goose isn’t exactly a restaurant, the stall is located by the side of shops at the intersection of Jalan Seladang and Lorong Yap Hin. There’s tin roof and semi-permanent table and chair set up, but no luxury amenities such as wifi, fan, toilet, or wash basin.

The chef himself though, dressed up as if he’s working in a high class 5-star hotel, which is as professional as hawker operator goes.

Chen Chen actually offers more than just roast goose, there’s also roast chicken, roast duck, roast turky, roast piglet, roast pork, char siu, vinegar pork leg, and sour + spicy soup. Quite an offering for a road side stall, really.

A single serving of roast goose with rice goes for RM 9 and the portion is more than sufficient. The meat tender and the taste is not entirely different from roast duck, but there is a slightly more gamey taste, and overall there’s also more meat and slightly fatter. I like it.

Half a goose would cost RM 65, as compared to RM 50 for whole roast duck, so you can imagine that roast goose is quite a fair bit more expensive (and larger) than duck.

I find the sour and spicy soup here is rather average, but that’s perhaps I’m spoiled from the excellent version served up at Peng Heong Hakka Paikut at Klang.

While most other places serve steamed rice to go with roast duck/goose, Chen Chen offers a version of their yellow rice that carries a unique faint flavor that I can only describe as a cross between briyani and chicken rice, but much subtler. I  believe it is made with turmeric and butter.

If you’re up for some roast goose, this would be a decent place to try.

Discuss : KY eats – Roast Goose at Chen Chen, Jalan Pasar

  1. Spotted this place but never tried. Hehehe…being too guilty of eating back at our regular kopitiam:P

  2. I don’t think we can find any roasted goose here in Penang :(

  3. I m game for more meaty n gamey but tender goose…although the roasted piglet is the one tat most interest me…plus the signature rice sounds flavourful =)

  4. My friend bought me a drumstick to try when I was in KL recently, dunno from where. Nice…but I think I prefer duck…with the duck smell that puts some people off.

    Been there twice. One of the better roast goose in town.

    Personally I preferred roast duck especially the petaling st n the stall in front of ampang ytf in ampang

    • small kuching: you should try Loong Foong in PJ if you have a chance, best roast duck still. I think.

  7. Hi, blog walking here hehe.

    Wow, that doesn’t seem to be much meat there. If it were me with you guys, I wouldn’t be full and would still go for more. Wakakaa.

  8. oh ya, i think in a blind tasting, i might not be 100 percent confident of differentiating between goose and duck (though i hope i could!), but nice to know there’s this convenient location where i can tar pau some goose before heading into the office for my afternoon shift! :D

  9. Can’t say I’ve had a lot of roast goose in my life. I don’t have many experiences to compare the quality to.

  10. love this place and I got the same shot of the smiley chef hehe !

  11. you didn’t mention the plum sauce! their old school plum sauce is the BOMB;)
