Any Chinatown Goose sightings?

Im thinking about Christmas goose - but also about the geese I had in chinatown in years past. Has any goose been seen or eaten recently?

  1. They had goose (on the Chinese language menu) at Foo Kee (Full House) on 38th Rd, Flushing. One dish was braised goose, but there were maybe others.

      There is a siu mei (燒味) place next door, it is associated with the restaurant and it is very good quality, especially for chicken. They offered roast goose some time ago, but I haven't visited for about a year. It's a natural place to check. The other one is corner of Kissena and Laburnum.

        oh yah? ive seen it, worth trekking to from the city?

    2. I've been looking for the for years. Way back when once had a roast goose Chinese style.

      1. There is goose sighting....

        but not in chinatown.

        i saw it on a menu just in the last two weeks.....forget where exactly....but Russian/East Europe.

        only goose web. That i discussed on some other Chinatown venue recommends, in 2012.

        Flushing may be bet....

        I can asked some of my 毛泽东 compatriots....or my 蒋介石 compatriots.

        I know places to buy it for the home.

            thanks, all still looking - in the meantime, I guess I will have to count on roasting my own Christmas goose instead of picking up a wonderful Chinese one.

              I don't think they do chinese roast goose here. Have you seen it before ?

              1. re: AubWah

                I used to get goose at a chiu chow place in Manhattan Chinatown. It hung in the front window with the ducks and pork - fantastic.,

                  1. re: AubWah

                    Yes, Mott near Hester. Also they used to have great roast goose at NY Noodletown--have no ikdea why they stopped.

                    1. re: swannee

                      the place we went was Sun Golden Island (Hester and- is it Pell? first street down from Canal) but this was not the onlly place that hadit. Wonder what happened?

                        Hi Jen,

                        I'm pretty sure I've seen one in a siu mei window in Flushing just a few days ago (we were just driving by). there were ducks to the left and a couple geese to the right. That was clearly not a ChaoZhou roast that you prefer but at least that's a lead.

                        The restaurant is on the corner of Kissena and Laburnum, the southmost part of the Flushing Chinatown, right before the park. The restaurant has just changed its name to Good Fortune, just like a supermarket on the same block.

                        Good luck! Merry Christmas!

                          wow, maybe I will give it a try on Christmas Eve!!!

                          1. re: jen kalb

                            goose is quintessential chiu chow food, they make it in this method called lu wei or lu shui

                            here's what a good version looks like:

                              鹵水 braising results in a different skin color from what I saw, but then again we were just driving by. The restaurant is definitely not Chao Zhou in general.

                              1. re: diprey11

                                oh yah i highly doubt ill find lo sui goose here, just commenting on jen kalb having goose at a chiu chow place in NY

                                btw do you think that siu mei place is worth trekking out to? or is it rather just good for flushing? (ive never really been impressed by siu mei places in flushing, but would be great if there is one worth trekking for)

                                1. re: Lau

                                  In my personal opinion, 叉燒 is better there than in any other place including Manhattan:fatty, silky smooth, and not overly sweet. I also find their 燒肉 quite interesting --and worth trying, but not everybody agrees.

                                  The place on the 38th St, 富記, has great chicken: both 豉油雞 and 白切雞 are juicy, tender, and not over-seasoned.

                                  I like the quality of those items more than in old Manhattan stand-bys, but only in those two places. (There are tons of terrible siu mei in Flushing.)

                                  1. re: diprey11

                                    hmm interesting ill give it a whirl...most of the siu mei ive had in flushing is mediocre, i love siu mei so im always on the look out for it

                      2. re: swannee

                        I used to eat there too. Loved that place

            2. 鵝肉真好吃。 台湾和广州的我都吃过了!但纽约还每找到

              Goose is so delicious. i have had the Taiwan and Guangzhou preparations of it, but as of yet have not located it in NYC.
