1. Yung Kee Roasted Goose 镛记
Yung Kee said to have the world famous roasted goose. It is good but overrated. I don’t really have a very deep impression of how tasty it was because I found a better one. Just my own preference but you all should come and try this, it might be your best. However, I would give lotsa credit to their service and also the century egg. Its definitely a brilliant choice to serve the century egg with runny yolks. OMG so nice! Please read the full blogpost here. YungKee VS YatLok [Address: Hong Kong, Central, Wellington St, 32-40, Yung Kee Building, Hong Kong][Opening hours : 11.00AM to 11.30PM]
2. Yat Lok Roasted Goose 一乐烧鹅
Here comes my personal number 1 ranking for roasted goose. I’ve tried numerous roasted goose throughout Hong Kong and this definitely is the best for me. The skin is more towards the crispy type but the meat is still tender and juicy. Its like they sealed all the juice under the skin. Succulent! For me, it beats Yung Kee. Its not the best looking restaurant but its always full. Pricing wise? 1/3 of Yung Kee.

3. Tsim Chai Kee Wonton Noodle house 沾仔记
There’s three utmost popular wonton noodle house in Hong Kong. Ho Hung Kee, Tsim Chai Kee and Mak’s Noodles. I personal love the Tsim Chai Kee one. No matter is the clear wonton noodle soup, the two combination or the treasure noodle soup. It is just so addictive. I never thought wonton noodle can be so interesting until I met you. Broth wise, flavourful and complex. Its not your ordinary wonton noodles. Please read full article here. [Address: 98 Wellington St, Central, Hong Kong][Opening hours : 9.00AM to 10.00PM]

[Address: 2 Gage St, Central, Hong Kong][Opening hours : 7.00AM to 6.00PM]
7. Tai Cheong Bakery 泰昌饼家
This is the number 1 recommended bakery for egg tarts and all sort of pastries. I don’t fancy egg tart so I cant tell you the difference. All I know is.. its nice! However, one thing you have to try at least… the century egg puff. So good! Puff pastries is flaky and the filling is dense with a very light sweetness compliment with a unique texture of the century egg! Noms!

Tsui Wah restaurant has more than 50 chain restaurant throughout Hong Kong, basically every area you can see at least 2 or 3 Tsui Wah.

9. Kau Kee Beef Noodles 九记牛腩
Sadness. This one is just opposite Sing Heung Yuen but I choose Sing Heung Yuen over this.
