The roast goose is very average. The meat was tough. It tasted pretty bland. The BBQ Pork was salty though I will consider it tasty.

Tai Hing offers mixed platter roast meat, this is a great option for people like me who like to try everything the restaurant offers. It was a pity that they don’t serve roast goose in the platter. The Roast Meat was great. The fat layer was a very thin layer and the meat is still so tender and soft. The skin layer was well roast, it was crispy.
The BBQ Pork is tender and delicious, full flavour of the BBQ sauce but on the salty end.
The Roast Goose has a crispy shiny skin and tender meat. A great place to enjoy roast meat at a reasonable price.

The roast goose is well roasted with a crispy skin and the fat layer between the skin and meat was thin. I find the meat a slightly, very slightly, tough. It would be better if it is a little more tender.
I know this post is about roast but the Century Egg is so good till I must share it here. It is a must eat. It is excellent. It has a soft yolk centre and crystal clear white. This is the kind of perfect looking and tasting Century Eggs.

We tried the roast at Very Good Restaurant when we were there for dinner on a Friday night. The roast was pretty good. The roast goose meat was tender and flavourful but still not the best.

The Roast Meat at Joy Hing is extremely fatty. I suppose it is the fatty meat that the patrons are coming back for. I didn’t enjoy as I always prefer lean tender meat. In terms of flavour, pretty fine. Personally I think they could do it a little more flavourful, I find it little blend.

The roast meat served at Yat Lok was flavourful. I like it very much. It was a pity that it was extremely salty. It would be great if they reduce the amount of salt added.

The roast goose meat, lacking of flavours, tasted very natural with not enough of marinate. Fortunately, the meat is still pretty tender

I pretty enjoy the food served at Maxim’s Food. I ordered the Three Treasure Rice Set. There are Sausage, Roasted Meat and Soy Chicken. The meat were tender, flavourful and the saltiness level was just right to eat it with the rice.
