I have had the Chinese Foie Gras in Hong Kong it is not a bad product. Have had French in Singapore and yes it was much more costly. When I was living in Thailand a upscale Restaurant did a Sunday Brunch who had Foie Gras on it. My meals started with several servings went on King Crab Legs and Lobster, and then a nice steak. I really miss that place.

Now I have one local chef who imports it and offers, it is very good and reasonable for Foie Gras at about $22 us be very costly for the Philippines.
