My friends love the affordability of HK’s bbq roast meats. It makes for a great brunch type of food. For my time in Hung Hom, I stumbled upon this restaurant as the owners were the only people friendly enough to invite me inside for a meal. My inability to read the language and my desire to eat local foods led me on quite the adventure. Hung Hom was at one point famous in HK for a rich owner deciding to showcase his wealth by making a hotel out of solid gold (the hotel has since been melted down after his death to capitalize on the run up in gold prices in the past 5 years). It’s also one of the first stops for the tour bus route for Mainland China visitors. You will see a lot of shops off the main roads set up solely to cater to the China tourists. It was while walking off the main roads that I stumbled upon this place.

This is the intersection to cross into the hidden alleyway.  Wuhu Street and Marsh Street.

Peer into the unknown (Wuhu Street and Station Lane), there are a handful of small businesses operating inside: drycleaner, appliance repairman, hair salon equipment, steam buns and roast meat.  Marsh Street in this instance (inbetween Wuhu Street and Station Lane) is closed off to cars, allowing the restaurants to set up shop on the street.

This is the best roast meat stand in all of Hung Hom and Hong Kong.  They can do whichever mix you desire for the day.  Any 2 selection of meat and soup for $28.

Duck and chicken breast for me.  Make note of the full breast of both duck and chicken.  Certain roast meat places can carve a piece of meat to look like breast meat, not this place.  They don’t skimp on food nor portions.  You get exactly what you want.  They will even remove the skin if you are on a diet.

The soup is made fresh every morning and left to slow cook forever.  Only the finest most over ripe vegetables are used in its creation.

They also serve roast goose.  I’m not a fan of goose as it’s a large duck and even more fatty.

In my opinion, this roast meat joint is the best in Hong Kong and I’ve eaten at a lot of different roast meat restaurants all over HK from the street food vendors and cooked food centres to Tai Hing Roast Restaurant.  This place beats everyone in the realm and it’s affordable.  The only issue with this place is the fact it’s in Hung Hom and I no longer live there so it’s hard to frequent it on a daily basis following my workouts.
