Compared with the roast goose in Guangzhou, the skin of the Gujing roast goose is relatively thin, with golden yellow in the scorch. After one bite, the skin is thin and crisp, with a light smell of lychee wood. In terms of taste, “sweetness” and “fragrance” are the characteristics of the Gujing Roast Goose. The sweetness comes from both honey and the unique marinade of Gujing Roast Goose.

The word “deep well深井” in Guangzhou’s “deep well roast goose深井烧鹅” comes from its birthplace, Huangpu “deep well village深井村”, and also refers to a special form of roast goose. Every inch of the skin of the roasted goose cooked by this method is crisp. With the finishing touch of lychee wood, the roasted goose has the scent of lychee and a unique flavor.

Litchi Chai Shao Goose荔枝柴烧鹅 is a traditional feature handed down from Daling Mountain大岭山 in Dongguan东莞. This has always been a rich place for lychees, and lychees have no other use after being cut down. Using them as fuel can make the best of everything. Litchi firewood is solid, dry, and flame resistant, and almost contains no gum. It will not burn like pine firewood because of its gum.
