Chinese restaurant Goose question restated

alfairfax | Dec 9, 2006 02:04 PM

In a recent posting regarding a restaurant, RWOrange mentioned roast goose which led to various comments on its availability in other Bay area restaurants. I chimed in as well and asked a question which is still tumbling in my mind. I am reposting that question on its own because it is somewhat buried in the other thread.
Here 'tis:
A mystery that I have often wondered about and perhaps someone knowledgeable about Chinese restaurants can answer. (Yimster, are you out there?) On many Chinese restaurant menus one can find goose intestine or goose web or other odd goose references, but aside from Yee's, NO GOOOSE ITSELF! Where are the bodies going? Who is getting the meat??

There is a restaurant in Tsim Tsat Tsui (sp?)--Hong Kong--that featured wonderful goose and the sign outside was great: a rather anthropomorphic goose, partially clothed and holding a fish in its arm-like wings. And I once did a very complicated version from an Indian cookbook that was the best I ever ate but a lot of work. Any idea about such things around here??
