Sum Long Teochew Braised Duck: Everything Teochew except the Hawker!
Let’s talk duck. There are basically three different types of ducks being sold in Singapore. They call them Chai Ya (lit Vegetable Duck), Ban Chai Ya (Half Vegetable Duck) and Fan Ya (Rice Duck). The one that you will most likely eat at hawker centres would be the Cai Ya. They are the common white […]
Lian Kee Duck Rice: How good can braised duck get?
Braised Duck, Tauhu, Taupok and Rice $5.50 Being a Teochew Ah Hia (Teochew guy), another dish which I am supposed to like is braised duck. It is one of the few dishes that requires more than 3 ingredients which my own father takes the trouble to make. Most of his other dishes just require two […]
My dad used to braise duck when I was a kid. He still does it now occasionally. There are few things that my dad does cook and one of them is braised duck. Unfortunately, I never learnt how to braise duck from him. My cooking skills all come from mom. Maybe its time I asked […]

Lee Xin Braised Duck: Tender Braised Duck: North Bridge Food Centre 1 of 2
With smart, liverpool and iwatch_ueat I have been passionate about blogging those really old established hawker stalls because since they have been around for so long, their food ought to be good (akin to Darwin’s theory about survival of the fittest yah?) But you know what, I realise that what really makes the food good […]
Chuan Lai Kway Chap King: The First is actually the Last

Cheok Kee Duck Rice: East Coast Lagoon Food Village Part 4 of 7
With: AC Towkay & iwatch_ueat A good duck rice must have a good Lor (Gravy). As my mom would say “lose-win” is the Lor. Most of the time when I eat duck rice, I don’t actually go for the duck meat as I would with chicken when I eat chicken rice. I usually go for […]
