Yung Kee (鏞記) is one of the most famous restaurants in Hong Kong. Founded in 1942, the restaurant in the Central District is famed for its century eggs, roast goose, barbecue pork, and perhaps for the expensive price as well.
Visited the place in October, ordered roast goose, roast quail, fried rice-noodle with beef, and century eggs etc.
The goose was served in typical HK style, with cooked ground-nuts and fermented veges. The meat was tender and the gravy blended very well with the meat, top class. The century eggs are the best I’ve ever had. Other food are just so so.
The bill was just over HK$400 for three adults. Acceptable, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the money. Perhaps it’s worth a try, but certainly not a place to frequent.
