Review: Roast Duck at BBQ Kong Meng

I was on half day medical leave a few weeks back for having vertigo. My head spinned for a good 3 weeks before it finally cleared off this week. I was virtually floating my way round and it's very disturbing to be imbalanced. Some of you might have noticed that I did some floating during the flogger's meet but I can vouch it's not because of the Martells ok haha...

Anyway, on the day the doctor diagnosed me with vertigo, hubby picked me up around 11.00am and off we went to Menara PGRM to settle our income tax stuff. Before heading home we decided grab a bite. Since we're around that vicinity, I had to go for some roast duck. I think the foodblog spheres seem to be having lots of roast duck of late haha but then this one is my closely guarded secret. Will let you guys know why later. I'm very reluctant here but good things ought to be shared huh??

KM - Restoran BBQ Kong Meng

Today, I'm bringing you guys to Restoran BBQ Kong Meng located in Taman Maju Jaya in Cheras. It's the taman after Shamelin Perkasa as shown in the map below. Kong Meng sells mainly Roast Ducks but you can pre-order Pei Pa Duck (halved and spread out for roasting) by calling them in advance. Other complimentary roasts such as siew yuk (roast pork) or char siew (barbeque pork) are also available.

We have half portion of roast duck (RM23.00) which both of us whacked down with white rice. We managed to finish up everything! Scary eh but the duck meat was so good. Aromatics Chinese spices can be detected on the tender meat coupled with super crispy skin. They'll bring the duck to the kitchen to douse it with boiling hot oil before serving, hence the super crispy skin, just like the way Soon Fatt Beijing Roasted Duck did theirs. One large roast duck costs RM49 here. Can't remember how much is a smaller one.

The meat were best dipped in the sauce (I think made with soybean paste and some other ingredients) and a very delicious home made sourish garlicky chilli sauce. Between hubby and I, we finished almost half a container of chilli sauce *sshhhhhhh...*

A Yin Yang vegetable (RM9.00) was recommended and I have no idea there is a breed of vegetable that combined choy sum and kai lan! We asked for a simple preparation of stir frying in garlic but was told later that this vegetable is best to be stir fried with sambal belacan!! Darn... but nevermind, hopefully we can go again soon.

Ahem, on my reluctance... Kong Meng serves duck tongues! Arrghhh the secret is out! Not many places in Kuala Lumpur does this and this commodity is so priceless that Kong Meng will only sell them when they have collected enough tongues from the ducks they sell, plus they usually sell them to regulars! So not everyday they'll have the tongues. I had many privileges tasting the tongues due to my kaki makan colleagues. They were the first whom cajolled me to try them. After my first try, goshhh I had wanted more and more. Usually Kong Meng will have to cook the tongues with some squid since there aren't that many tongues to make up a dish. This dish is simply cooked in a slight sourish sauce with loads of chopped fresh red chillies. Absolutely delicious! The texture of the tongues is on the crunchy side and they're basically tasteless. No picture since we did not order any, don't think my hubby is up to such fetish kekeke... *sobs* now I have to content with you guys my share of duck tongues unless you invite me along eh???

You know what. As I was typing this, I actually swallowed my saliva .. just by looking at the photos. That's how powerful visual temptations can be. I would live to try out this place someday. Thanks for the review.
