South Buona Vista Road duck rice @ Little India

Postby tankee » Thu Aug 01, 2013 10:24 pm

The famous boneless braised duck from Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice Eating House in South Buona Vista Road is back, and is now located in Sam Leong Road in Little India.

South Buona Vista Road Famous Teochew Boneless Duck Rice opened two weeks ago at Kim San Leng Eating House, a five-minute walk from Farrer Park MRT station.

It is run by Mr Ang Chiap Teck, the brother- in-law of Lim Seng Lee's founder, Mr Lim Ah Too. He had worked at the South Buona Vista Road shop for 28 years, until Mr Lim decided to close it last month due to ill health.

Two former staff are helping Mr Ang.

The duck rice, with its distinctive herbal gravy flavoured with cinnamon, used to attract diners from across the island. They would drive to the coffee shop for the tender boneless duck meat, fragrant brown rice and spicy chilli.

Unfortunately, Mr Lim's four children did not want to take over the business.

He is said to have given his blessing to Mr Ang to revive the 45-year-old business.....

Red meat portion r tender but breast portion sometimes powdery.

Rice texture is grainy but not too dry.

Porridge is so smooth.

Downside: too much MSG in the duck sauce.

We used to eat there, but the last time I did which was before CNY this year, I could not tahan the MSG.

So giving this a miss.

I thought the meat itself is so-so.
My only impression is the sauce. Is it msg? Iirc it was light coloured, slightly sweet and have a touch of mandarin peel.

Overall, I feel it is so-so for that price.

Whenever we go there, always end up eating the same food...carrot cake, fish all noodle, satay, 五香...just too lazy to think.

The better food stalls at this food centre can be counted easily IMO.

If u go at night, must order the satay mee hoon (confirmed nice, long q)

The duck stall also not too bad IMO.

Satay - I find only the stall opposite the bbq chicken wings nice. The other stall so so only.

The zi char stalls- all not nice.
