AUTHENTIC Hong Kong goose at Lung Hin.

The Golden Goose returns

Authentic Hong Kong flavors come alive with the premium roast goose beginning 12 November. Guests can enjoy golden goose prepared by guest chef Billy Cheong who returns to the award-winning restaurant Lung Hin to share his expertise with the prized culinary staple.

The premium roast goose will be available for a la carte orders. A set menu is also available with a line-up of other dishes such as steamed garoupa with minced garlic and pan-fried crab with pork belly in supreme soy sauce and braised seafood with peach gel soup.

Considered as a fine dining must in Hong Kong, roasted goose requires a special culinary technique that preserves its flavorful flesh and crispy skin. This traditional dish has been a specialty of Cheong’s family for centuries. His passion and love for Cantonese cuisine stems from having been born to a family of connoisseurs in their home province of Guangdong.

Having relatives who are also master chefs, Cheong was able to gain numerous international awards for his skills. He has recently recovered all that was lost in an over one century old traditional roast goose formula from his grandfather.
