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.

It’s a joy to leave in matured estate Geylang Bahru as I’m surrounded by some good local hawker food. One of the favourite stall in Geylang Bahru Hawker Center is Cheok Kee Braised Duck Rice. Where else you can get a good braised duck rice for a $3? The meat is tender accompanied with tasty sauce. Yum!

Between the Nicholas Bittersweet Chocolate Cake, pictured at the top (4inch @ $32) and the Big Daddy Cupcake ($3.80), the cake & muffin were both of the same chocolate cake base.

Taste-wise:
- Big Daddy has a predominant Nutella taste
- Nicholas Cake is taste more chocolate and less sweet

If you like your cakes/cupcake moist, this is an acceptable cake. The shop also advertises that part of their proceeds goes toward a good cause.

the right cut, more fats than meat ratio and omg the so enjoyable caramelised bits.

It comes with fishballs which were bouncy and a big piece of fishcake!

The owner was proudly sharing his soup recipe to the diners seated beside us as we were having our meal. His secret? Quality ingredients.

Our hotpot was served with pieces of pork rib and pig tail, lean pork slices, some innards, white clams, huge prawns, crab and white cabbage.

Taste: 7/10

Price: 6/10 (We paid a total of $50 for a huge pot full of quality ingredients and 2 bowls of refillable prawn noodles.. It was definitely not an expensive meal, but considering the soup base was the prawn noodle broth and each bowl of prawn mee goes for $10, I’m not too sure if I would return for this hotpot..)
