Goose and Gander

Today we're off for our department pre-Christmas lunch. No turkey for us, we've opted for superb roast goose!

(Sorry, about the picture, they have it split on the website and I don't have the wherewithal to piece it back together again, but I'm sure from that you get the idea.)

Excellent food. And to tempt your tastebuds this is the menu. We'll be having a good old feast and there will definitely be at least one goose on the table! But no shark's fin, nope nope nope.

Update - we had:
Preserved Eggs with Ginger
Roast Goose
Congee (rice porridge) - I had mine with beef slices
Dao Miu (pea shoots)
Braised Beancurd with Assorted Meat
Baked Spare Ribs
Egg Custard Tarts

YUMMY - got to love Asian-style eating where you share everything.

Just to make Emily drool some more - Updated 20 December - today for lunch we had traditional Cantonese dim sum:

Rice paste rolls with shrimp
Barbeque pork steamed buns
Barbeque pork in pastry
Steamed chicken feet with rice
Steamed sliced fish with rice
