Sze Ngan Chye Roast Duck in Kepong

The salted first duck here tastes so savourily good. The last I had the original Petaling Street was from a time I couldn't recall. Of course, there were other distractions here and there and these roast ducks were succulent and stood out as among the better ones. However, niggling at the back of my mind was this one, but the travel and parking were not very beckoning. That is until I was told that there is an air-con branch in Kepong.

So one fine lunch afternoon, we eagerly traipsed there with our hearts and mouth trembling with culinary excitement.

Now, for the first experience, it was a good one. The duck was succulent and the meat's taste was indescribable. It has the effect of creating a desire to have more of that duck. The salt as in 'salted' tasted so good. In an Asian world of food, most were ladened with sugar.

There is a way that salt can bring the best out of the meat. There is something we can learn from the West. Frankly, take a look at how steak is done. Just salt and cracked black pepper. Of course, there is the gravy, but then the most important work on the steak was done using salt and black pepper.

Then roast pork was expected. Crunchy rind and delightful meat cooked and honed to a desirable taste from a controlled fire in the oven.

A relaxing lunch with a good ambiance and air-condition added to our day. Lunch can be so satisfying without breaking into the usual bout of perspiration.
