Kam’s Roast Goose

Wan Chai, Hong Kong
Dining date: 3/9/16
There are many foods Hong Kong is known for – dim sum, wonton noodles, and Chinese BBQ meats are just a few. Roast goose falls into that latter category, somewhat unique outside of America. I’ve come across roasted (Peking) duck many times but don’t think I’ve had roast goose.
Located in the Causeway Bay neighborhood, Kam’s is one of the most notable roast goose shops in town. It looks like a pretty typical Chinese BBQ meat shop, but it did garner a star in the latest Michelin guide.
The goose was beautifully presented. The meat was luscious – tender yet with some bite, slightly sweet and very savory. Delicious.
Roast Suckling Pig
Suckling pig had an ideal ratio of crispy skin to fat, though small pieces of pork hidden underneath just didn’t add as much flavor as expected.
Crispy Roast Pork
Roast pig featured tender pieces of pork, thin layers of fat, and an extra crackling skin. Another strong dish.
Prince Kinsen Noodles
The noodles looked very unassuming but were great. They maintained a nice chew, flavored by goose fat drippings. A hearty broth came alongside.
Kam’s did not disappoint. The goose is the main draw here and deservedly so, but the roast pork was another highlight. And the noodles too.
