What the goose
|1 star factor|
Kam's Roast Goose, yet another new entry in the 1 star session in the latest Michelin guide HK edition, a tiny Chinese restaurant in Wan Chin. It is popular for its Chinese style roast goose, a whole goose cooked in a charcoal furnace with different types of seasoning such as sugar and rice wine. As expected, the usual in Hong Kong: Michelin star + affordable price = no booking, mad queue and full of tourists. I don't see that as a problem if the food is actually worth the hype but sadly it wasn't.

Kam's Roast Goose was a fairly standard Chinese restaurant, it was decent at best and I find it rather outrageous why this place has a Michelin star at all (well The HK guide usually failed), their signature goose dish wasn't even that amazing and I can easily think of better restaurants that do goose elsewhere at similar price points. Simply put, treat this as your standard high street Chinese restaurant, forget the hype, otherwise you would be disappointed.
