This place has since closed.
I'm doing this upon the request by my friend, Keriso. He asked me if I've tried this roast duck stall in The Weld's new foodcourt. He and I came across the newspaper review sometime back on this chef known as Uncle Duck from Hong Kong who specialises in roasting delicious duck. I think I've only been to this place twice at the time of asking but by now, I've gone for my fourth visit. Haha actually this place is pretty near to my work place but seriously the food stalls in this pomp food court are nothing to shout about and worst of all, they charges quite high for food court kinda food and certain stall dishes out very small portion. I guess we have to pay for the specially made dinnerware (see last picture) and the renovation cost, no?
Anyway, we have wanted to go to some other place to eat but that place was closed, hence we head to Chow food court instead. So here we are... my review, specially for Keriso. Keriso, this will cost you RM7.50 okay!!!
Yeah that was how much this set of Roasted Duck Rice costed me, the breast meat set costed RM7.50 and other parts of the duck will set you aback at RM6.50. It came with a small bowl of white rice, thinly sliced roasted duck meat, a bowl of clear broth and a plate of greens which was yien choy (spinach) this round.
The duck meat is tender but the skin is not at all crispy. Tastewise, not really great. Very far cry from Soon Fatt Beijing Roasted Duck. I had to doused the meat and rice with the sauce for some flavour. The chili sauce also no kick at all, tasted artificial. The rice portion was just nice for me but I think for the guys, they will definitely need to tambah nasi (add extra bowl of rice). However, I got hungry at 5pm which is a very rare case! Look at the empty spaces on the plate hahaha... The vegetable given is fibrous and tasted bland. Some oyster sauce with onion oil would be great on it. The only praise I could sing is their broth hahahaha very flavourful, I supposed came from boiling the duck bones.
My verdict: Keriso, I want my money back!!!!
Uncle Duck stall have rice porridge, fried rice and noodles as well. I saw some people queued for their fried rice, hmmm maybe that might be nicer. Other than Uncle Duck this food court have stalls selling Thai food which is one of the better one around, Portuguese Grill seafood, chicken rice and so forth. Pity the dim sum stall had closed down by now and they only started operation on 22nd August 2006. How sad... Hopefully the management can do something about it, if the price is high, just have to make sure the taste is good and the portion given is well worth the price. Are you hearing, The Management?
