Usually I’d try as far as possible to keep braised duck away from my meals because I can’t understand what’s the great deal about chewing on a piece of duck meat(which is hard usually) smelled of soya sauce. The braised duck skin which is a piece of elastic soya flavored fat is something I also don’t know how to appreciate. I mean roasted duck skin is more tasty anytime right? So where or when does a plate of soya duck rice comes into the picture? Only Cheok Kee can make that happen for me because their lor(gravy) is simply too delicious to be ignored.

Braised duck should be a symbol of teochew’s cuisine but the simple fact is that the non-teochew version(lor is thicken) can do better for me. If you’re thinking that I’m buying a plate of duck rice from Cheok Kee for it’s lor and not it’s duck, then you have guessed it right! The only palpable reason for me to think about a plate of lor ark peng is really only the lor and I’m just wondering whether anyone out there sharing that same philosophy as me?

Lian Kee Duck Rice
Hin Hollywood Canteen at Haig Road

Although I don’t quite understand about the braised duck business but I still know my lor(gravy). So at Hin Hollywood Canteen recently, when I came across Lian Kee(a braised duck rice stall), I couldn’t resist paying a couple of dimes to test the ‘lor’ after witnessing how, almost all the tables having a plate of duck which were doused with gravy that seems to express itself very well with that flat out gooeyness.

The sweetness in the gravy was only very subtle which is to my liking while the herby smell was only moderate and everything was just mellifluous. For me, this type of gravy is very delicate as opposed to the teochew version which usually has that sweetness and ‘herbiness’ overdrive. The duck meat was well not bad. It’s hard to describe how good duck meat can be but I guess this wasn’t too hard so it’s quite good, unlike those utterly tough ones which needs some jaw work. The soya colored rice is also quite good which is very puffy and soft.

My golden rule of a braised duck rice is the gooey, harmanious gravy with subtle but aromatic flavours and at Lian Kee it has done remarkably well for me. For the duck meat, rice or some other things, I guess there can be endless debates or discussions over it. If you have the same lor ark peng(braised duck rice) philosophy as me, then Lian Kee may be your kind of bliss.

Price: $3.50

Conclusion: This duck rice has the right elements for me. The gooey appearance can make me drool while the overall flavour and taste were pleasantly aromatic. They are also a kway chap stall so I am eager to return to test the kway chap soup.

Likes: Gravy and rice.

Dislikes: None.
