Hi Steemit Friend,
Hope you are well today.❤️ As you may remember, I shared Da Long Yi Hot Pot & HeyTea in "Dine with me in Shenzhen" last time. Today I would like to introduce a popular Chiu Chow's Marinated Goose restaurant in Shenzhen with you, Ri Ri Xiang Marinated Goose Re which is famous among gourmets and locals. The geese used in Ri Ri Xiang is a special kind fed in Shantou and is the biggest goose species in the world, with a head that resembles that of a lion, hence its name 'Lion Head Goose'. Lion-heads are undoubtedly a quality ingredient, but the crucial part is the cooking and marinating, which is composed of a dozen herbs and spices. Unlike the traditional marinated geese shop, the marinade is freshly made in Ri Ri Xiang everyday. Without further ado, let's have a look of this shop.
Steemit 的朋友大家好❤️ 上一次吃在深圳跟大家分享了大龍燚和喜茶，感謝大家的支持，今天想跟大家分享一家在我家鄉潮洲汕頭已有13盛名的老字號—日日香鵝肉飯店，這家餐廳每次經過都排滿了人，種草了好久，終於可以拔草了。日日香選世界上最大的鵝種—汕頭澄海的獅頭鵝為材料，因成年鵝的頭形如獅頭而得名，一般有十幾多斤重，最重更可多達二十公斤。除了貨源把其他滷水店比下去，日日香用的是每天早上新鮮現熬的配料，比傳統的老滷汁健康新鮮，滷水滷出來的鵝肉甘香多汁，因而得其名「日日香」。讓我們來一探這家主打獅頭鵝的滷水店吧~

We arrived at the restaurant around 10:30 and there were many people waiting outside the restaurant already. Being the first batch of guests of the day, we get our table when the restaurant opens, which is 11:00. Separated just by a glass window, you can view the skillful chefs in action right from the entrance.
The restaurant is decorated in authentic food stall style – brightly-lit, red plastic shade, iron gate, complementing the wooden tables and chairs in their neutral tones. And their servers are dressed in cowboy style wearing a small straw hat that create a funny contrast with the shop's decoration
Let's see what we order today~ 我們來看看今天點了什麼
The signature dish of this restaurant is the marinated goose. Every part of the goose has different texture and a goose is separated into 12 different parts, head, neck, liver, gizzard etc.
And guess which part of the goose is the most expensive?
The Answer : Head and neck
I know it's hard to believe, I thought it's liver before I see the menu. One whole marinated "Lion Head Goose" costs RMB$1288 while the head and the neck worth RMB $ 888 which is three quarter of the whole goose. To be honest, I am not big fan of eating the goose head and neck.
Goose head and neck I am not a big fan of these.
Marinated goose egg It tastes very similar to eggs but 4 times larger.
Marinated goose liver I love goose liver. It has a very buttery texture, very rich and smooth. It taste good with the delicious vinegar sauce.
White vinegar dipping sauce
And of course, goose meat. The goose meat is tender yet meaty. It taste good dipped in the delicious vinegar sauce too~
And we ordered bean curd and veggies as well。
Coconut Chicken Soup is highlight of the meal. The refreshing coconut water is subtly sweet and the chicken balances it up with savory deliciousness.The soup is surprisingly good and we found that it is a popular soup other than goose in this restaurant. You will see it on every single table in the restaurant.
Last but not least, we ordered the fruit platter (RMB$38) which have all 7 different types of fruit. If you want to get your own fruit platter, you can order it at the fruit bar near the entrance.
The gritty, ground powder is Sour Plum Powder. It tastes sweet and sour with hint of salty flavor which provide a unique finishing touch. I like my fruit with sour plum powder :P
Noticed Heytea is located right next to Ri Ri Xiang. My friend and I decided to get some tea :P And we found they served two limit edition drinks. And I ordered both, which are seasonal fresh pineapple and mixed berry green teas with whipped cheese-flavour cream on top~ As I am a big fan of berries, I prefer mixed berry to pineapple.
