+++UPDATE: The restaurant has moved to G/F., 12 Queen Victoria Street in Central since April 2014+++
This is a fantastic little shop/restaurant. I’ve walked past it so many times but never ventured inside. In fact, it’s a small shop next to a restaurant on Gage Street in Central (close to the Central Market), specialised in BBQ meat. It sells pork, goose, duck and some intestines (at least that’s what I could tell, it might even sell more).
If you go to left side of the two shops/restaurants – that’s the shop. You can still eat there, but you’ll be sitting next to the piglets and goose that are waiting to be marinated and/or roasted.
The pigs will be marinated in a special recipe for many hours and are then placed in the huge oven that’s at the back of the shop (which you can’t see).
There are only a few tables and chairs in the restaurant – but we went in the afternoon so it was not busy. There was even a regular lady, who eats at Lung Kee Restaurant almost every day because it is so good.
We tried the roasted pork (lean version) on rice. We’ve added a little soy to the rice and then ate the very delicious pork – it was very tasty. The texture was very good, nice lean meat that was not too chewy.
Will I go there again? Yes, why not? It’s convenient, easy to reach (a few metres from the mid-levels escalator) and a great family-run restaurant with its own recipe to marinate the pork.
