The morning after the typhoon and Hong Kong came alive again. Really weird to see Hong Kong a ghost town but this helped me to appreciate that a city is more about its people and not just the buildings and stuff.
Our flight which was supposed to leave at 9 am had been delayed to 6pm. Hurray! Another few hours to spend in HK. I thought I have to let this two get a taste of roast goose before leaving HK or the trip wouldn't be complete. Roast goose to me is very symbolically linked with Hong Kong because when we were young whenever my dad came back from Hong Kong, a roast goose was what he would always bring home with him and until today I can still recall the feast that followed.
Remembered passing Yung Kee on my quest for the wanton noodle in Central, it looks terribly grand and expensive but I didn't want to waste time looking elsewhere as I want to leave some time for shopping too. So Yung Kee it had to be.
Everything look so good from the window. But regrets set in as soon as we sat down and had a look at the menu...
A less than 1/2 (probably 1/4) a goose serving cost HK$150!
And this plate of white-cut chicken cost HK$120.
This meal with rice and chinese tea cost HK$300+ and it was the most expensive of all the meals we have had in Hong Kong. The goose and chicken were good but not spectacular and I know we could have easily gotten the same thing for a fraction of the price in many other roast shops. Will I go back there again? A definite NO even if I am to encounter another typhoon.
