Comments Classic Cantonese cuisine ranging from common street bbq to unique recipes of yesteryears, Yung Kee is a stronghold of the culinary world in Hong Kong due to its respect for tradition.  While Yung Kee serves consistent good meals from its enormous dining hall at the Yung Kee building from the 1st to the 3rd floor. To sample the true fine dining experience, you have to make special reservation at its VIP room on the 4th floor or the Yung's club on the 8th floor.  The best classical Cantonese cuisine has been a lost art because it demands labor intensive complicated technique and ingredients that are lost due to poor preservation.  On top of that, chefs who know how to prepare those classical dishes are mostly retired by now.  The younger generation chefs neither know how to cook them nor do they know how they are supposed to taste like.  Fortunately, Yung Kee's boss, Mr Kam painstakingly collects old recipes and revitalized them in the most authentic way.  For those fortunate few who have tried the special menus, we all owe it to Yung Kee's deep respect for the tradition and its perseverance to preserve this last piece of culinary treasure.
Most Memorable dish(es) Smoke young goose, Beef brisket tip in consommé, tofu steamed in whole ham, Rice cooked in clay pot with Chinese salumi, old style wonton noodles
