Close to Hong Kong’s famous nightlife and dining district of Lan Kwai Fong, Yung Kee has been a local institution since it first opened as a food stall in 1942. The food is authentic Cantonese, served amid riotous decor and writhing gold dragons. Locals come here for roast goose with beautifully crisp skin and tender meat, as well as dim sum. Other excellent dishes include the “cloudy tea” smoked pork, which needs to be reserved a day in advance, and the deep-fried prawns with mini crab roe. More adventurous palates may wish to check out the thousand-year-old preserved eggs.
