Bite-Size Review: Yung Kee Restaurant in Central, Hong Kong

Forget the luxury fashion brands....THIS is the best streetfront window display in Central.
If you're a resident of Hong Kong, chances are you've dined at Yung Kee before.
If you're a first-time visitor to Hong Kong, chances are you've heard of Yung Kee and want to try it out. 
If you're a returning visitor to Hong Kong, chances are you'll put it in your list of restaurants to revisit.
If you've not been to Hong Kong yet, chances are this will be the place your friends, colleagues and well-meaning acquaintances will tell you to check out. And possibly take home some of that roasted goose back for them.
Roasted (extra crispy) pork and roasted goose
That last bit is what I really like most about Yung Kee, the venerable purveyor of said roasted goose (and other delicacies) and a fixture on the foodie scene on this island. Not only may you dine on their many specialties (BBQ suckling pig, cold steamed chicken, stir-fried minced pigeon with lettuce, braised abalone with fish maw, century egg and pickled ginger,) but they're great about packing them with great care and maximum fuss for that plane ride home.
Chinese sausages, Yunnan ham and waxed ducks.
There's also a separate section next to the restaurant that is dedicated to takeaway purchases of dried Chinese sausages, waxed ducks and Yunnan ham. Never mind those kitschy pairs of chopsticks and Shenzhen-made rice paper fans for which you overpaid at Stanley Market, these edible treasures are the ultimate souvenirs for appreciative fans.

Yung Kee Restaurant - 32 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong. +852 2522 1624
The pungent century egg and sweet pickled ginger
 as appetisers. Definitely an acquired taste.
