Opened by Hong Kong's 'Demon Chef' Alvin Leung, this place surely lived up to its expectations! The slow roasted duck can actually rival the Peking duck at Imperial Treasure, and the calamansi bun is super soft. I like the fact that the duck did not taste overly salty even after it turned cold.

Similar to the taste of Cheng Teng, this sweet soup comes with lily bulb, dried longans, red dates, peach gum, white fungus and lotus seeds. Good to end the meal with this great palate cleanser.

This version here has a slight twist with the addition of hawthorn and Mei Kuei Lu (rose essence wine), this was sprayed on the dish after it was served. Quite gimmicky in my opinion. Also perhaps the flavors were too delicate and possibly escaped my taste buds.

Though I do appreciate the lean meat used here and how it is not excessively battered with just a thin layer of crispy skin with just the right amount of sauce.

Most part of the vermicelli was dry, lacking in sauce/broth, the kind that keeps the vermicelli moist. Did not find this dish particularly flavorful, no crustacean flavor and the truffle scent was too subtle to make an impact. The critical saving grace was perhaps the perfectly cooked tender lobster.

Forbidden Duck serves two styles of roasted duck: the star chef’s back-to-basics Peking roast duck and a signature slow-roasted whole duck.

Since duck is the specialty of the restaurant, this is clearly a MUST TRY.

This version of duck is slow-cooked in an oven for 3 whole hours before being roasted for another 30 minutes to achieve the crispy exterior and a moist pinkish moist interior - perfect combination along with the fats between. With no additional marinade, Chef Leung brings out the natural flavours of the duck purely through roasting.

A unique pairing for this dish is the calamansi flavored steamed bun and the hoisin sauce with calamansi the duck is served with. These are very subtle, though I appreciate the effort to add some acidity to enhance the flavors and cut through the grease. Other condiments include sugar, smoked sea salt and garlic puree to go with the signature poultry.

Wouldn’t have ordered this if not for the staff’s recommendation. Seemingly unassuming dish that turned out to be a winner, insanely flavorful and comforting.

The broth is simmered with plenty of duck meat (with skin & fat intact) and comes with fresh tender scallops and crunchy prawns. Deep fried crispy rice pops were added upon serving, and oh, how they snapped, crackled and popped in the hot broth. Love how this really adds to the texture of the hearty broth!
