Roast Sensation is a new Hong Kong dining venue in Carlingford, and it offers some of the most succulent roast duck and pork that we have tasted in Western Sydney!

We dined at Roast Sensation before Christmas and had the opportunity to chat to Paul who owns and operates the restaurant with his brother. Paul and his family share a passion for good food and aim to serve the best in Asian artisan roasts to their diners. Obviously, one of their signature dishes is Roast Duck, and to ensure it tastes its absolute best, Paul and his staff  prepare it using a traditional Hong Kong method from the 1960s. This intricate process can take up to three days, firstly, the duck is flavoured with a marinade, and then it's hung in a refrigerated cabinet to air dry the skin before roasting. As the duck roasts, the fat renders away and all that remains is tender juicy meat and crispy golden skin.

The  Roast Duck and BBQ Pork Platter was the standout of our meal that night. The meat was tender and full of aromatic flavour.

There were also plenty of other highlights, the Duck Spring Rolls are a new fave for me, the pastry is so light and flaky!

The Pork Dumplings are just as moreish thanks to their crunchy pan-fried bottom, generous filling and a red vinegar dipping sauce.

Hong Kong's famous food culture is marriage of Asian cuisine with European influences, so it's not unusual to find some interesting fusions on the menu. The Baked Pork Chop with Rice is a great example of this, it may not be the prettiest dish they serve but it's as comforting as a casserole with the creaminess of an Italian risotto.
