Good Fortune Roast Duck

Crunchy tiles of pork crackle. Sweet, sticky char siu. Star anise laced duck, bronzed to perfection. If there’s a Chinese roast meat in creation that’s bad, then, I don’t think we’ve met….

J and I joined his family at Good Fortune Roast Duck House for lunch on a recent Sunday. K (J’s brother) and I were more than a little excited when the three meat combination arrived. We went with a selection of char siu, roast pork and roast duck – perfect for sharing in a group, and even better for the indecisive.

The roast meats on offer here are delicious, but I’m still convinced they’re better at my favourite roast meat shop, Hong Kong Barbecue.

The reason why J’s parents chose Good Fortune for this particular lunch, was because J’s Dad had heard lots of good things about the other dishes on offer here.

It’s no wonder, when they serve up beauties like this salt and pepper flounder. Topped with a fragrant rubble of chopped spring onions, chili, golden fried garlic and generous amounts of salt and pepper, the tender white fish is hard to resist. The fish has been deep fried until both its tail and fins are as crunchy as the pork crackle on offer at the restaurant.

The surprise star of the show is the stir fried long beans with pork mince. It’s not complex by any means, but is a definite crowd pleaser, with tender pieces of crunchy green beans and fragrant soy-laced pork mince.

The soft chunky pieces of onion throughout make me smile, reminding me of my late Grandmother’s version of this dish. I used to hate the onions (and the beans) with a passion as a kid – but luckily for me that’s not any issue any more – as I’d be missing out on this great dish.

We’d ordered conservatively, deciding that three dishes between us (with rice) would be enough. But by the end of the roast, the fish and the beans … we knew we wanted a little more.

In the end, these sticky barbecue chicken wings were our choice – one which none of us had ever tried before. These sweet and sticky wings were coated in the same marinade as the char siu, and were the perfect small bite for these gluttons.

One thing I love about roast duck restaurants? The Hong Kong style drinks! Sweet and strong iced coffee and iced milk teas were our beverage of choice.
