Much like famous delis around the world that survive and thrive due to a signature sandwich, Chan Kong Kei lives off of two Cantonese specialties: Black Pepper Roasted Goose (黑椒烧鹅) and Black Pepper Roasted Duck (黑椒烧鸭).
You don’t really go there and order anything else, so just stick with these two house specialties that both came very close to cracking my list of 10 Can’t Miss Dishes.
Besides that, it’s the type of food that tends to travels very poorly overseas so be extra sure to try it when you’re in Macau. And considering both only cost $130, you’d almost be foolish not to.
If you prefer a smaller helping, Black Pepper Roasted Duck, Roasted Pork, Barbecue Pork, Chicken, and Spiced Liver are all available for $43, and come served with rice.
Be aware that the restaurant is often packed during lunch and dinner so come early and/or be prepared to wait, sometimes in a line that snakes around the corner.
