For that very pocket-friendly price, you get a decently sized duck leg, some mash, coleslaw, and a cob of corn. The star of the show was undoubtedly the duck confit: very tender and well-seasoned, boasting a beautifully crisp exterior that actually has an audible crunch when you slide the knife into it. I can’t stress just how important that is, cause not even the more established restaurants can claim to render the the fat off that well and get a such an amazing crazy crunch on the skin. Meat wasn’t gamely at all so points for that, and I actually liked how their slaw wasn’t too creamy or sweet (understand this is coming from someone who really doesn’t like coleslaw). I also like Med how their brown sauce has a sort of mild acidity we usually expect of hawker brown sauces, but with a welcomed peppery hit. It’s not an in-your-face sorta peppery sauce, but it’s there lingering in the back. The mash is I mean instant mash so nothing to yell home about there, but it’s a generous portion and decent enough. And I’m not about to bitch when they’ve got a solid duck confit at such a steal.

Ok I'm super slow I geddit, but at least I've finally hopped on the bandwagon. Checked out this once (is it still?) mega hyped about store, and gotta wonder why it took me so long. For one, I love the light batter on the fish that's thin, crunchy, and doesn't leave that greasy, floury aftertaste. Fish is fresh, flaky, moist and buttery as well, so they've got their basics down pat at least. And what I especially liked about their hipster sauces what that they actually tasted pretty genuine: salted egg's like the tze char kinda salted egg pork sauce that I adore, and the chili crab's neither too sweet nor starchy. Can't say I'll always have my fish with these sauces, but they definitely aren't shabby at all!
