I've heard a great deal about Duck King at Jaya One. I've walked past it myself but didn't bring myself to go in.
About a month back, my father wanted to bring me out for dinner. He wanted to bring me to eat some good roast meat. In fact, he wanted to bring me to Duck King.
Duck King is located right in the middle of Jaya One, where parking is abundant. The restaurant was filled to the brim when we arrived. Anyway, we were seated after a 5 minutes wait.
As there were only the two of us present, we couldn't sample many of their other dishes. We went for their siew yok, roast duck (siew ngap), a tofu dish and sze-chuan soup.
Note: Don't eat Chinese food when there's only 2 or 3 people.
The soup was tantalizing with that slight tinge of sourness, but I would prefer mine a bit more sourish. I gave mine a good dash of vinegar. However, the soup was very good indeed. It was priced at RM10.80 a bowl.
The duck was okay. However, I have to say that the Siew Yok was one of the better ones I've tasted. I prefer my meat lean, and Duck King tend to serve their siew yok with less of that thick layer of fat in between Siew Yok. Even without the fat, the meat had that nice, soft texture when bitten into. Definitely a thumbs up to this dish. The combination of two types of roast meat came up to RM28.80.
The Tahu/Tao Foo/Tofu is made in their restaurant daily. This dish was quite good. Really enjoyed it. It was priced at RM22.80.
I would most certainly patron this place again. The winner for the night had to be the siew yok. A long time ago, somebody told me that the Chinese pastry with salted egg was very good at this place. I would certainly like to try it the next time I'm here.
