Yung Kee has been around for over 70 years living in the heart of one of the busiest financial districts in Central, Hong Kong. Yung Kee has been known for their signature roasted goose and also their publicly played out court fight amongst family members for their family owned business. As much as I would continue to spill the T on their publicly played court fight that can be found through google but what can’t be found through google is what you’ll experience at Yung Kee.
As you enter their restaurant, be aware that if you’re planning on having a light lunch like a bowl of noodles or a plate of rice with roasted goose, insist on eating downstairs. An unspoken and sometimes unknown rule the restaurant has instilled is if you’re not sitting on the ground floor, you’re paying more. Just compare menu prices when you head to the second floor as opposed to the ground floor. The only benefits between the upper flower and the ground floor is that you can reserve a table on the upper floors.
And although the floors may present significant prices in differences amongst certain dishes, but the quality remains the same on all floors. But as they may be known for their signature roasted goose, I’m mainly here for their wonton noodles, so here are a few of my favorite dishes of theirs:
Flat noodles with beef and choy sum.
As Yung Kee has been around for so many years and I can see why it still works for them and patrons to continuously come. Though for my personal palate, I only entertain Yung Kee because of their wonton noodle soup. But to make the effort to the hustling bustling part of Central, you might as well eat a little bit more while you’re there. Though Yung See’s quality control is always uncertain; some days their good and some days, not so much. Though one thing is for certain, if you’re only there for their siu mei, you might as well give Kam’s Goose a try first.
