BBQ Restaurant - Dataran Mentari, Sunway

Sunday afternoon is a great time for lunch in Dataran Mentari. Its quieter compare to the evenings. This 'square' is piled up to its rafters with eateries. Except for fine dining there is almost anything and everything here. The nights here can get really crowded at certain corners where tables make its way onto the road.

This is a 'siew mak' shop aka roasters or bbq. It has all and sundry. No goose though. I am not sure why. But then these are comfort food to the Chinese and if delivered well will certainly be selling briskly.

Duck drumstick. Fantastic subtle flavouring allowing its gamey taste to shine, letting the meat displayed its unique dark meat that is so good. I believe duck has more flavours than chicken which tends to be flat if not marinated well. The skin was well seasoned and came out tops. I like it the drumstick as it has the most acreage skin-wise. The meat was fresh and succulent.


The 'Siew Cheong' is supposed to be with this look. Perfecto, though slightly too sweet. The mitigating factor was the contents. Moist and soft. Most that I have eaten were a bit dry.

The 'SIew Yoke' was a bit too dry. I was hoping for a piece de resistance. It was not. The duck was the best! The reviewed for the chicken (far right) was an anti-climax after the excellent duck drumstick.
Obligatory vegetables rather than being ordered for its fame.

MM...its a man. Mmm, who? did not ask. The founder?

FB... duck was the best of the lot. Did not try their 'siew yoke'.

Joe... my goodness, living overseas is not easy for the foodie.
