The tale of the chicken and duck part 2

This is a tale about the chicken and the duck. Yesterday, we have discussed why chicken is more popular than duck. But if you asked me, i’ll tell you i love my ducks more than my chickens. Just ordering half a chicken, i can actually get a bit sick of eating finish the meat, but for duck, i can have the whole duck and i can still carry on.

My friends have always complaint my blog feature nice food from Bukit Batok, is there truly no delicious food around? Actually yes and no, since different people have different taste bud, its quite hard to determine what is considered nice and delicious. But since we are on the topic of chickens and ducks, let me show you what i think is one of the better duck rice in Bukit Batok.

This particular stall is no strangers to Bukit Batok-ians, and even foodies living elsewhere. Their duck is the toast of the crowd, and it always sold out pretty fast, and sometimes if you are there at the wrong time, you’ll need to wait for them to roast the duck as they didn’t roast all their ducks at one go.

Their duck meat was considerately fatter than the normal ones, with a thick layer of fats beneath the unhealthy, yet-so-good duck skin. The meat was tender, and you must eat it together with the fatty skin to get the “oomph” kick! The only gripe – the serving was rather small even for half a duck, you couldn’t get enough of the meat.

Roast pork

I also enjoyed their roast pork, with a super crispy skin. This is no joking matter, biting into the roast pork, will give you the “crisp” sound, that alone would tell you the crunchiness.

Char siew

Their char siew was actually the weaker of the three. Althought it’s rather juicy, but the char siew meat somehow lacked the “wow” factor, and the sight of the bright red colouring also put me off. They also sell soy sauce chicken, but it’s not good compared to the rest.

Haha, I know this one, this is the coffee shop that overlooks the open air carpark. The cze char used to be really good but I am not sure how is it like ever since I have shifted out.

Come to think about it, I prefer duck (particularly roast duck) over chicken too but I love the chicken rice. So chicken rice + roasted duck = heavenly + sinful… Also have to agree with you that fatty skin is so yummy…

I like the roast pork better actually. :) you should then try the one at jurong east, near the yu hua CC hawker centre.
name of store is fei fei. everything is crispy! ;)

used to frequent this’s good, but the service was horrible. not to expect much from a hawker stall, but it’s really super horrible! not sure if it has improved since then, but it definitely put me and my family off then till now.

fen: hahaha! ya i heard their cze char store is all right but i nv try it before. chicken rice very oily man! but i always eat the skin even though not healthy, its like part of a package! haha thanks! you got the address for it?

jamie: yep, they did an interview with me, how did u chance upon the article? i haven seen it yet though. haha

elvadrieng: yeah man! try and let me know : )
