“Get a table at this Roast Duck venue instead!”
Though travellers from Asia including Hong Kong (and thats saying a lot when it comes to food!) almost always congregate and queue up for a table to have roast duck at the infamous Four Seasons just 2 doors away, it is just as worthwhile popping over to Gold Mine for exactly the same! Here you will much less likely be required to queue or wait and I believe the food and more specifically the duck is just as good.
I have been to this restaurant for many years now and though it has to be said the decor and surrounds are plain and functional, the duck has always blinded any subversion I have had to the dining environment here. Another favourite of mine is the SzeChuan beef strips amongst others, whilst the japanese dofu is also exquisite.
Coming back to the duck however, I would say this is the best I have had worldwide. I believe its because of the nature first, of British duck which is sufficiently “fatty” whilst achieving the right balance of succulence, and second because of the amazing sauce which I have compared to the qualities of Bordeaux wine, with a mystical depth and maturity.
Anyway go try it for yourself with the knowledge that you dont have to queue up with the crowded throngs just 2 doors down.
