Kam’s Roast Goose boasts a Michelin star and is helmed by the grandson of the founder of the acclaimed Yung Kee.

Serving modern Chinese cuisine with fusion elements, the cheekily-named Ho Lee Fook is helmed by award-winning chef Jowett Yu.

Now a century old, this Michelin-recommended diner is a legacy family business dating back to the late Qing dynasty. Forget about the fluorescent lighting and plastic tableware — the only thing that matters here is the quality of the roast meat. Perhaps the secret to Joy Hing’s divinely tender goose lies in the restaurant’s ancient oven, which dates before World War II.
