The duck confit is a French classic dish well loved by foodies all over the world. ‘Confit’ when translated to English means preserved. This traditional delicacy was created centuries ago before refrigerators were made accessible to households. Fortunately, the advancement of technology and widespread affordability of fridges did not see this age-old recipe being made redundant. Instead, the duck confit had become a major staple of the French diet.
An excellent duck confit is one with fragrant crispy skin and succulent juicy flesh. Mastering the preparation of this French gourmet is not an easy feat and many restaurants in Singapore have yet to grasp the timeless French method of cooking it. For our love for duck confits, we have searched high and low across sunny Singapore for tasty duck legs that are worth splurging on and indulging in.
From Saveur’s affordable Duck Confit to fine dining establishment La Brasserie’s interpretation of the French classic, here is our guide to 13 Duck Confits in Singapore You Must Try.
Duck — Brad’s preferred choice of meat.
That’s the best way to describe my love for duck. While I’m a big fan of kurobuta pork, and there are many people who always rave about the marbling of the wagyu beef; I find it harder to say no to duck meat.
Many friends have told me about the famous braised duck rice at Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice Eating House, which is located right at the end of the winding South Buona Vista road. It’s kind of difficult to remember the name ‘Lim Seng Lee’, so my friends always call it the Pasir Panjang Duck Rice.
Pu Tien Restaurant has been quite impressive in the Singapore Food scene. They have expanded from their original branch at Kitchener road to five other outlets within a couple of years. The other Pu Tien restaurants are strategically located in popular shopping malls like Marina Square, Tampines Mall, VivoCity, Jurong Point, and there’s even a Pu Tien Buffet restaurant at City Square Mall.
I have been wanting to drop by Pu Tien restaurant for dinner ever since I heard that they are a very affordable place for a good Chinese dinner. When I eat out with my friends, we tend to stick with Western food, or check out other cuisines. like the usual Japanese, Italian or French food.
I’m not sure if it’s the same case for you, with the exception of Dim Sum, I usually only have Chinese food and zichar dinner with my family, but not my friends. All this is about to change with our dinner at Pu Tien Restaurant.
There are a few things in life which you can never forget. Your first love, the first time flying on a plane, the wonderful taste of food, and of course, my first visit to the prestigious 6 Star St Regis Hotel, and not to mention, the most expensive and excellent dim sum that I’ve there.
