Being my first time to Geylang Bahru Food Centre, I decided to join the stall with the longest queue being the Singaporean in me. Cheok Kee Boneless Braised Duck (01-35) serves duck rice and porridge. A plate of duck rice sets you back $3, although you can also opt for a set meal if you’re sharing this with a friend.

We queued for half an hour on a weekend afternoon. Pictured here is the set meal for two ($11). It’s a relatively good deal given that there’s a good amount of duck meat and there’s duck gizzard included (if you eat them). Unfortunately, they don’t sell egg and tau kwa (firm beancurd).

DUCK 🦆

Love how there’s so much meat even after it’s been deboned. Texture was decent but not the most tender I had. It could’ve been softer.

Gizzards were fresh and thoroughly cleaned. No funny smell or taste. I’m not someone who would order gizzards on its own though.

SAUCES

The braised sauce (lor) was fragrant with a unique herbal taste that can’t be found elsewhere. Consistency wise, it can get rather watery after awhile. I wished it retained its thickness throughout my meal.

I must say I like their chilli sauces. Make sure you get the tangy garlic chilli sauce which is mixed with vinegar and the sambal belachan. Some people enjoy mixing the two together.

RICE 🍚

Nothing spectacular. It was rather dry and clumpy. At least it wasn’t just white rice but brown rice that’s infused with soy sauce.

All in all, it’s fairly decent but not worth the half an hour queue.

Mum has been a frequent customer at their Bugis stall, but it’s my first time trying! This was very impressive for its price - just $2.50 and you get a chunky piece of freshly fried fish, along with an egg and bits of pork belly, ngoh hiang and fish cake. Gravy was well seasoned, had a good consistency and wasn’t too thick. The counter has chilli, vinegar and minced garlic for you to add too based on your preference. Star of the bowl was the crunchy, tender and meaty piece of fried fish, so would definitely top up 50 cents more for their Fried Fish Lor Mee ($3) for more fish next time!

This stall near the carpark side entrance is quite old school feel.

The wanton mee tasted fantastic, I will definitely come back again for this
