Happy Bakery And Deli Roast Goose
I was by on Sunday with soya chicken and roast duck in mind. While standing in line, I noticed they had roast goose listed on the sign up on the wall. This must be new as I do not recall seeing it at any other previous times that I have been there. I was at first excited to try a half goose ($10.00). It turned out to be a disappointment in that the goose was smallish (about the size of the duck!), the skin was rather limpy without character; though the goose was meaty, it was overly lean and dry and lacking in taste. Duck would have been the better choice than goose. The soya chicken was its usual excellence. I wonder if any other chowhounders have tried their roast goose and can venture comments?
Thanks for the report, Cuz. Roast goose would be a new thing here. Was it roasted in an oven or soya/master sauce style?
When I've tried to convince other spots to add goose to the repetoire, some times they'll tell me that they would if they could find better quality geese. Most geese are only available frozen and they're leaner than in Asia. Our local ducks are just better starting material. Sounds like that might be the case here.
