Having served diners a wide range of classic Chiu Chow dishes for more than 40 years, Pak Loh Chiu Chow's Marinated Sliced Goose Meat is deservedly famous among gourmets. The secret to the dish's success lies in its original (and secret) brine marinade, which is composed of a dozen herbs and spices - soy sauce, ginger, cassia bark, aniseed and garlic - all carefully selected and prepared by the restaurant's Chef Chan. "A dish such as this is built on the quality of its marinade – as the saying goes, that the older the marinade, the better the dish," explains Chef Chan. "The more the marinade is used, the more flavorful it becomes. No Chui Chow chef would ever dream of throwing away the brine after it has been used to cook a goose!", he laughs.
The chef makes Pak Loh Chiu Chow restaurant's signature dish with Shantou Lion Head geese, one of the biggest species in the world with a head that resembles that of a lion. The geese are imported exclusively from Chenghai, Shantou, and each one weighs more than 6kg. The geese are steeped in the simmering brine for more than an hour and a half, and all the while are constantly turned to better let the marinade infuse the meat. The tender meat is then cut into thick slices and served.
