Tasted some really fabulous HK-style roast goose at lunch today. Wei Kee Restaurant at Medan Imbi was pointed out to me by fellow KL-based Chowhound, mikey8811, after our lunch at Sun Fong Bak Kut Teh a couple of months ago. It was a great rec!!
The chef-proprietor, Yong, was an extremely friendly, articulate host. The roast goose - based on his family's century-old recipe (his uncle runs a roast goose restaurant in Sham Tseng, HK) - was perfect: melt-in-the-mouth, very tasty flesh, and the crisp, fragrant skin.
The perfect accompaniment to the roast goose was the restaurant's home-made noodles, lightly dressed with fish sauce.
Other dishes we tried were:
- roast pork. Like the roast goose, the pork was also very well-marinated before being roasted, resulting in subtly-flavored delicious meat and biscuit-crisp crackling skin. Not as good as Wong Kee in Pudu (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/754791) but still in a class of its own.
- braised tofu with minced pork and scallions. I loved this dish - simply bursting with flavors.
- pork and dried mustard leaves soup, which was light and went well with the other dishes at today's lunch.
Just the perfect meal to start my weekend in KL. It was a simple restaurant, and the price for this whole meal for 3 persons (plus drinks) was RM89 or USD28.
Definitely worth a return visit.
