As far as birds go, goose is one of my favorites for consumption. For the rich and fehmes, you have foie gras; for the rest of us, there is always roast goose. Glorious glittering roast goose.

Unfortunately for the goose lover among us, there just aren’t that many places that offers this glorious bird. More often than not, places like Canton-i or Soon Fatt at Pudu runs out of them rather quickly.

Yi Kee is an old establishment that’s been around for a while, I guess you can sorta count the experience of the chef by his wrinkles… (and perhaps the goose fat in between, anyway I shall stop talking crap and get on with the program).

We arrived at Yi Kee on the weekends just past prime lunch hours, and luckily there were still roast goose left. Haze and I ordered goose for two, a serving of roast pork, and rice. I’ve heard they serve some good steamed soup, but we tried not to over order that day for a change.

A couple minutes later we were served with a rather huge portion of 1/4 goose, dark meat with drum stick. I stared at it for a minute, admiring the glistering fats over the layer of crispy skin that screamed at me, teasing it a little.

Then a bite, oh my. Roast goose will be roast goose, I’m not sure how great they are in HK, but this one is tasty and this one’s available, that will be good enough for me.

Goose and roast pork are served with plum sauce, dark sauce, and chili paste. All of which tasted authentic and home made. The plum sauce’s most definitely home made, not as thick as those off the shelve type but tasted quite a lot nicer.

The skin of roast pork here comes with super crispy skin, they are also fatty but the non fatty meat are the firmer type. Old style, nice, though not as addictive as the one at Wong Meng Kee at Pudu.

Yi Kee is situated along Connaught Highway just across from where UCSI University (stupidest name ever, since UC = University College). Our lunch coasts about RM 20 per pax, guess goose is never cheap, but it was worth it.

    Despite me staying across the street, I’ve never try their Goose before. There’s also another shop nearer to the BP petrol station which served pretty good roast duck!

    Nice! I thought I saw a roast goose place in SS2 too, could be mistaken as I was driving aimlessly around. I wasn’t sure if it was goose or duck too.

    That place is rundown, dirty and outright disgusting. ๐Ÿ˜•

    Went there once, it was packed and that has me curious. The food is nothing to shout about. It is packed because the of low productivity. It takes a long time for the owner to come out with a plate of food. That is why it is crowded!

    The hygiene is something everyone should note. The plate, utensils, even glasses are greasy. Flys are everywhere. The longkang/sewer in front of the shop smells, don’t look into it, puke inducing.

    Definitely a place to get food poisoning.

    YUCKS!!

    Sad to say, I also found the roast duck and goose here overrated. A bit dry and the sauce is super salty.

    Seriously, I can’t differentiate the goose and the duck here.
    I tried the one at Chen Chen in Pudu as well. And rather pricey too.

      goose’s always more expensive than duck, but at the same time they also have more meat and in my opinion, tastes slightly better. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi KY, have you tried Restoran Wei Kee at Pudu? The roasted duck there taste really good, better than Yi Kee imo. Had my lunch there earlier but sadly didn’t get to try out their roasted goose, went there around 12.30pm and it’s already sold out. Do write a review if you are visiting! Found a review here though- http://www.taufulou.com/2013/08/27/restoran-wei-kee-roasted-goose/
