I’ve been longing to try this restaurant since my first Hong Kong visit – I guess third time’s the charm! This year, I finally tried Kam’s Roast Goose, a one Michelin star restaurant which happens to be a family legacy.
The Kam family name has been tied up to their roast goose restaurant. Kam’s Roast Goose is actually owned by the third generation of the family but they see to it that their roast goose is as crisp and succulent as ever.
The restaurant has only 30 seats so don’t be surprised to see a long queue. First thing to do is to go to their reception to get a queue number. I think we arrived at around 1:30 PM and we still waited for about an hour!
After the long wait, we quickly headed to our seats and were very excited to try the roast goose. Inside the restaurant, the Michelin stars for the years 2015 to 2019 are displayed which actually made the interiors more lavish.
Did you know that they actually earned their Michelin star within just 4 months of opening? Knowing that made me more excited to try their food. Now, the menu.
Roast on rice! This is a top pick if you are travelling alone or with a small group. At just 53 HKD (~350 PHP), you’ll be able to try their famous roast goose! I tried to order their Roast Goose Leg on Rice which is more meaty, but it is no longer available since it’s on limited quantity and it’s already late afternoon.
Kam’s Roasts are their best sellers and are good to share. They also have a takeout nook for their roast goods.
Aside from roasts, they also offer special braised noodles, and other Cantonese specialties. Now let me share with you what we ordered:
Steamed Chicken on Rice, 43 HKD (~285 PHP) Their steamed chicken is very tasty. Although it is not under the chef’s recommendations, and I would personally not pick it from the Roasts on Rice list, I’m glad my grandmother ordered it. It is soft, light, and juicy – I think the flavors are perfectly balanced.
Roast Goose and Crispy Roast Pork Combo on Rice, 60 HKD (~400 PHP) I love that you can order combination roasts! The crispy roast pork did not disappoint – the skin is indeed really crispy. However, the meat itself is too salty for me. Good thing they have these special homemade dipping sauces to complement the pork’s taste.
They have Chinese hot mustard, house-made plum sauce which has a sweet and sour taste, and the ginger-scallion oil which goes so well with the steamed chicken.
Roast Goose on Rice 53 HKD (~350 PHP) Lastly, the roast goose – Kam’s roast goose, is worth the long wait! The meat was tender, moist, and very tasty. There’s a hint of a smoky flavor which elevated the whole dish. I also loved that the fat is somehow reduced which made the goose not too oily.
Their Hong Kong milk tea is also a must-try!
Kam’s Roast Goose did not disappoint. I was really satisfied and happy that I finally got to try their food. Hoping that in my next visit, I’ll get to try the most coveted leg-part. If you want a Michelin-star experience without breaking the bank, Kam’s Roast Goose is worth a visit.
