Sun You Eats: Yi Kee Roast goose @ Cheras

Goose meat has always been closely associated to upper class restaurants and food served in major dining events. As for those who have a long standing affection for this variation of meat there isnt that many places around serving it apart from upper class chinese restaurants as far as i know of. But this particular restaurant presents itself as more of a basic chinese restaurant serving downright honest chinese food which includes the slightly rarer fare of goose meat.

Since we went off the lunch peak hour the service was pretty brisky even though we ordered a relatively sizeable amount of meat for the 5 of us. They offered a wide variety of meat other than their famed goose including steamed chicken, roast pork (siu yuk) which of course we didnt skip out on and a few other seasonal variations offered on weekends.

It was a no brainer that we had to order their roast duck and goose. The roast duck was cooked well, slightly above average without too much fat under the skin,crispy and most importantly no signs of any gamey smell insight. Where as the glistering roast goose was slightly meatier compared to the duck, tasty and not dry. Both the duck and goose went well with their authentic home made sweet plum sauce and their own chilli concoction which definitely was good enough for me.

We also did branch out a little and decided to give their siu yuk a go. This wasnt very significant after having tried both the duck and goose meat but its worth a try if you'd had to have a nice touch of pork in your meat platter.

Dining in a group of 5 has always been an advantage when trying new places as you'd be able to sample a wide array of dishes in a new place which proved evident in this situation and most importantly cost effective too as we paid Rm 15 a person which was a pretty reasonable price considering that goose meat doesn't come cheap.
