2. 新口味卤鸭饭 / Xin Kou Wei Braised Duck Rice
There are several coffee shops in the vicinity but Hong Kah Food Place (formally 五十千/50,000/Gor Zhap Cheng which aunties and uncles I know still call it today) has always been among the top on my list for its array of delicious eats. Most of these stalls only operate in the morning and will be closed by 4pm. Xin Kou Wei is one of them and their braised duck is so scrumptious that it usually sells out by 2pm.
Like many other duck rice stalls, it also serves kway chap and duck noodles (dry and soup) for those who can’t stomach rice in the morning. But I’m just going to recommend their duck noodles soup because it’s something I’d always go for. The soup is very tasty and has a very mild herbal taste to it but it is definitely not repulsive or anything. The herbal taste would gradually dissipate once it mixes with the the sauce on the braised duck.
