Any Chinatown Restaurants do Roast Goose?

I'm recently back from a trip to Hong Kong, where I single-handedly thinned the city's goose population. Now that I'm back stateside, I'm craving it again. I see plenty of ducks and chickens hanging in Chinatown windows, but not many geese. Does anyone have any recommendations?

  1. I don't think anywhere in NYC Chinatown has the whole roasted goose or any goose dishes. Only goose intestine. Sad but true.

    Not sure about flushing. You may want to try posting the same question in the OuterBrough Board.

      Interesting. Thanks kobetobiko. I'm surprised roast goose is so rare in NYC's Chinatown. Any idea why this is? There certainly seem to be myriad restaurants specializing in roasted meats. It really is an underappreciated meat in my opinion.

        Amazing 66 has bean curd skin with goose. Haven't tried it.

        Maybe most places use the intestines and throw the rest of the goose away. (joke)

          You are right Brian S. They have the bean curd skin with goose and also goose web with sea cucumber.

          My guess is that the geese are imported (may not even be the whole geese, but just parts) and that's why there wasn't any whole roast geese in town.

    2. Doesn't New Chiu Chao on Mott St. have roast goose?

          Looks like it's roast duck or bust then, at least if I want to stay on this side of the East River...

          Any recommendations? My recent go-to has been New Big Wong on Mott (I believe), but I'm always open to new recommendations...

            Here's a recent thread with some relevant stuff (and some irrelevant but interesting stuff)

              I wanted to know what is the difference between roast duck and roast goose?

              The goose is bigger. That is all I know.

                it is similar to duck, but almost think that its a bit more tender and succulent...its really really good, i wish they had it here

      1. The goose in America are very different than the goose in Hong Kong. Thats why they dont have them here, according to the guy at NY Noodletown
