Crystal Jade Kitchen Westgate – Chinese restaurant in Jurong East

Yat Lok Roast Goose HK – One Michelin Star restaurant

Perhaps it is a case of the forbidden fruit. Many friends we know make a beeline for roast goose whenever they are in Hong Kong. It is hard to find roast goose in Singapore as the import of goose into Singapore is strictly regulated. According to a Straits Times story, there are still a few places to eat roast goose in Singapore. Many Singaporeans get their roast goose fix whenever they are in Hong Kong. Yung Kee, Kam’s Roast and Yat Lok are places that often come to mind. The latter two have received one Michelin star each in the Michelin Guide 2019. We decided to go to Yat Lok Roast Goose HK at Stanley Street to try their goose and roast pork. Yat Lok has been run by the Chu family since 1957 and at this Central HK location since 2011.
