Ah Yat Roast Duck @ Restoran Hoi Kee, Jinjang Utara KL

Since the nameless dim sum restaurant we wanted to eat at Jinjang was closed, we went to this this roast duck stall called Ah Yat which is just across the street. There are other alternatives in the area like Bak Kut Teh, Pan Mee and mamak food but we were more in the mood for some succulent looking roast duck.

A set for two that comes with a quarter roast duck (bottom portion) cost RM16 and you get free soup and Chinese tea. I think the price is reasonable enough for a no-frills meal.

Roast Goose @ Yung Kee Restaurant 鏞記酒家, Central Hong Kong

Yung Kee Restaurant located at the heart of Central is one of the top restaurants in Asia according to various restaurant guides. They serve a number of award winning Chinese dishes but Roast Goose is the main reason why they are so popular. Just how popular you ask? Well, the demand for Yung Kee’s roast goose is so high that as many as 300 birds are sold daily and it is even served in first and business class on board Cathay Pacific’s flights. So with that in mind, we thought Yung Kee was worth a visit despite their reputation of being expensive.

Yung-Kee-Restaurant

Among the many places we ate in Hong Kong, Yung Kee is be the classiest of all. Service is much more friendlier and attentive too, which kind of explains the prices here. And maybe because we already expected the price to be sky high, we were not very shocked when browsing the menu. In fact, we found Yung Kee’s pricing is similar to what Yue Kee is charging. Half a bird (two to four person portion) costs $240 while a quarter (two-person portion) goes for $120.

Looks mouth-watering good, right? It definitely is. Sadly, the reality is that it will be very difficult for us to get a roast goose that could match the flavor, smoky fragrance and texture of Yung Kee’s in Malaysia. No matter which piece you pick from the plate may it be the thigh, drumstick or breast, the meat tastes equally juicy and delicious. And of course the crispy skin with a thin layer of fat underneath was our favorite part.

Roast Duck @ Loong Foong Seafood Restaurant, Taman Paramount PJ

When it comes to Roast Duck there are two already well-known restaurants to go for in Petaling Jaya and they are Loong Foong Seafood and Sunrise. They are open at different hours though – one for lunch and the other for dinner so I guess there is no conflict of interest between them. Not too long ago me and my makan buddies craved for roast duck and since we could all only meet for dinner, Loong Food was the natural choice.

Chopping-Roast-Duck

It is important to pre-order your duck to avoid any disappointment especially if you are coming in a fairly large group. You would not want to come all the way here just to be told they have run out of duck, even though you could see some still hanging at the stall.

Roast-Duck

Given their fame, the roast duck here does not come cheap but it won’t burn a hole in your pocket either. For RM50 you get the entire bird, delicious with an expectedly crispy skin and juicy meat that justify its price and reputation.
All I can say is we got what we came for and satiated our roast duck craving alright. But sadly, the same could not be said for the some of the dishes we had that same night.

De’ Champion Duck @ Medan Putra Business Centre, Bandar Menjalara

De Champion Roast Duck Menjalara

There are many roast duck restaurants in Kepong especially along the stretch of ‘Wai Sek Kai’. Among all, Onn Kee has to be the most famous one in the vicinty but I have never really liked their style of roast duck because I find it too dry and the sauce is not that great either. If you ask me, the only thing I would recommend over at Onn Kee would be their roast pork. It is definitely one of the better ones around that I won’t mind taking away for lunch.
Because their overrated roast ducks are receiving far too much undeserved attention, Onn Kee’s roast pork remains pretty much an undiscovered gem, among the Netizens of course. That being said, allow me to suggest you present you a better place for roast duck in Kepong – De’ Champion Duck at Bandar Menjalara.

Although looks can be deceiving, there is nothing deceptive about the roast duck here. The bronzed duck is perfectly roasted with a crisp skin and an aromatic charcoal flavor in the lean, yet juicy meat. The sauce is more than just an accompaniment and is worth a mention too. It has a nice consistency, well-seasoned (not too sweet nor salty) and does great to enhance the overall tastiness without being too overpowering.
Basically all the characteristics I look for in a good roast duck are here so I couldn’t be more satisfied. Price wise it won’t be cheap but at least standard when compared to the others – RM24 for half and RM16 for a quarter. And like at other restaurants that specialize in roast duck, you can expect more than a type of duck here. They are the Drunken Roast Duck and Dong Guai Roast Duck but just so you know, both have a minimum order of half a duck.
