Can Teen is really easy to find, located inside the IFC mall off of the Central Ferry Terminal on HK Island. This reminded me of a "Morrison’s" or "Piccadilly" back home; it's cafeteria style. As it was lunch time, it was filled with mall workers and shoppers. As you walk in there's a digital board to tell you if there's something not quite ready yet and when it will be. (As in "BBQ pork - available. Roast Goose - 10 min.") It's nice to get an idea before you go in. The roasted goose, Peking style duck and BBQ chicken were all hanging up as you started in the line. Further down you could order soups, dim sum, and various other things.
I ordered BBQ pork and roast goose with steamed rice. I watched as the men behind the counter chopped up the meats and added them to a bowl of rice with some soy sauce. This was placed on a tray which I took down the line to get a drink, passing areas to order other yummy looking things and cold cases full of desserts and salads. Ordering a sweet iced tea, which was pretty good by Southern standards, I followed the counter to pay. Got octopus card? You can use it to pay here, saving me from having to dig through the back pack!
I found myself a nice quiet table in the back by a huge window, sat down, and enjoyed a meal with a view of the harbor and ferry terminals. The food was wonderful! It was the first time I’d had goose, but will not be the last! The pork and goose went really well together even though they’re both pretty rich. There was no way I could’ve finished it all, and for that much it was only about $35HK ($5US!) My husband goes to Hong Kong a few times a year for business, and I’ve told him he has to try this place for a quick, good, filling meal!
