Sorry for not updating regularly as I’m currently in Guangdong, China now and I reckon I should be telling you guys about this duck rice place which is one of my favourites since I started my working life in Raffles Place. This stall used to be located at the corner super old coffeeshop of Circular Road and Lor Telok but have since moved (About 6-8 years ago I reckon) to Lor Telok, just 2 shops to the right of Killiney Kopitiam.
This braised duck rice stall is the only stall within a ‘coffeeshop’… sells only from 11.30am to 2.30pm… within this short period of time, they can sell so many ducks, and they are pretty satisfied with that. What I love about the duck rice here is that, it has the traditional taste of teochew duck rice. The secret of course is in the dark sauce which I believe is the essence of constant braising of ducks over the years. Very authentic, very teochew, very tasty. Try it to believe. However, the sauce is a little salty though, but that is what traditional braised meats are all about… because these braised meats are meant to be eaten with plain porridge in the past.
Taste: What can I say… it’s one of the best braise duck places in Singapore… and only those who work in that area knows this place… come on, they need more recognition than that!
Portion: Quite good. It pays to be a regular customer ‘cos they do value their regulars in some way of portioning. Well that’s some customer service for you!
Pricing: For all that above minus the can drinks, including 3 big bowls of fluffy rice, gizzards & braised eggs, about $13.00
RTE: Hell yeah! Whenever I’m in that area…
Location: Lorong Telok, 2 shops to the right of Killiney Kopitiam. Opens from 11.30am to 2.30pm, Mon-Sat. Sun close. Parking is a pain on weekdays… hence you may wanna try parking at Carpenter St and then cross over or pay the price at OCBC carpark or One George St building. 🙂
