Duck King @ Jaya One

Sign of approval by Hong Kong god of eatery, Choi Lan

Duck King, already a household name in Indonesia, flew into Malaysia and set the culinary scene on fire since Feb 2009 . Located at Jaya One, a new concept commercial and retail centre in Section 13 of Petaling Jaya, Duck King appears to have found a firm following amongst the office crowd and families from the surrounding residential area. On this weekend occasion, the dining room was packed with large groups enjoying a long, relaxing lunch.

As the name suggests, they are particularly proud of their various preparations of the esteemed water bird. Many will argue long and hard over which restaurant produces the better duck, but few will be able to match Duck King’s . Hence, there was only one choice to make; how many duck dishes could you try? To satisfy our curiosity we opted for 3 types of roast for a starter. This 3 particular roast would reflect a restaurants roasting skill to thee max....

Roasting, of course, is the most familiar and Duck King holds up it’s own. The meat was tender and the skin a beautiful caramelised brown. Five-spice flavour was more noticeable than most other versions but not overpoweringly so.

However the charsiew is doesnt score with me , as its just too lean. IMHO , Meng Kee's charsiew beats this one hands down !
Everyones favourite !! Siu Yoke crispy with melt in your mouth 3 chang bak.

Tofu with mushroom. Her favourite..coz got mushroom mar...

Steam mince meat with mui heung salted fish. Leave it for a while forst to set before eating. great with the wonderful porridge !

Bak Choy with 3 varties egg. Yummy coz I love century egg

Fried ell...not so nice. Would be better if the ell is stir fried. The ginger is nice though...

Fresh squid sambal with petai. Too spicy for my liking though...but Jelly and Jon boy loves it . I just loves the petai only........
