Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck - Popular and Absolutely Duck-licious!

Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck (全記)

With the latest announcement of the Michelin Bib Gourmand Singapore 2018, I am truly excited to check out the new award recipients who have finally made a name for themselves.

On a side note, it is also about me brushing up on my foodie’s knowledge regarding the gold standard that Michelin food inspectors are benchmarking upon.


This would be especially helpful when you are trying out a dish that is less familiar to you but yet pondering over the types of attributes that make up a good dish. Having surrounded with friends who are fond lovers of one such dish, the Duck Rice, I am elated to place my focus on it which eventually leads me to my discovery of Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck. This top-voted stall has been around for more than 10 years where it secures a spot on the recommended list & finally, the honourable Michelin Bib Gourmand award! ​

 

You know how most stalls would go about asking their customers pertaining to their order such as the addition of certain side ingredients? I am delighted to mention that it is just a quick & simple indication of your choice and pricing among the three dishes & they would take care of the rest. It was a quiet, late afternoon at Ghim Moh Road Market & Food Centre which has already passed lunch hours & I was feeling awed by the impressive line of queue that immediately stood out.

​For meal hours, it can stretches across 20 mins of waiting time but now customers can be expected to wait even longer, given the Michelin’s hype.

​Despite the small interior layout of the stall, there are a couple of kitchen assistants around, each with their own assigned duty that tends to your order & speeding things up.

 

Best known for its signature Duck Rice, it is served as a default set meal that comes along with all the braised essentials that one can possibly think of. Apart from just being the meat, rice & cucumber, there is braised tofu, braised egg, braised peanuts and scallions which are all included at no additional cost. I have been pondering over the name of this stall which emphasises on the keyword – “boneless” – but however, most duck rice stalls do not serve the meat that is still intact with the bones right? At Chuan Kee, the meat has a firm texture to it which is thoroughly braised & infused with flavour. I love the meat as it is not at all gamy nor dry like some, but it would have been better if it is slightly less firm & more tender in texture.

​Similar to the meat, the rice is also well-flavoured with the gooey sweetness of the braised sauce gravy, making itself really appetising.

​The additional side ingredients have certainly enhanced the overall delightfulness of this dish, as well as the bowl of herbal soup that adds on a light refreshing touch & the saucer of chili that packs a savoury kick.

​To wrap things up, I have a pleasant Duck Rice experience which is best illustrated as value for money!

Being a fan who can’t get enough of similar food items all within the same plate, you can be sure that this plate of goodness certainly does satisfies me.
The best part would be that I do not need to fork out additional amount of money just to indulge in such great pleasure.

​I love how everything have been nicely put together, from the meat to the bowl of soup & its saucer of chili sauce. I am personally not a huge duck lover due to the fact that its meat can often get really gamy when it is not properly handled, but it is thankfully not the case over here which favours me. If there is an option available for fragrant yam rice, I totally believe that it would be the ultimate perfection. Nonetheless, it is a good step ahead for stalls like Chuan Kee Boneless Braised Duck that sees & satisfies the needs of its customer base!
