This is a popular lunch joint for the working crowd in the western region of Singapore. And is even more so now after the recent media hype of it closing down for good after 20th June 2013! If you are driving over, alight your passengers first to get a table while you try to get your vehicle parked. Be prepared to wait for around 10 - 15 minutes just to get a table.

We ordered half a duck portion ($20) for 4 of us. The legendary boneless braised duck was served minutes later coated with a layer of soy sauce based gravy flavoured with cinnamon and other herbs and spices. The thinly sliced duck meat was amazingly tender and goes really well with the accompanying sweet vinegar chilli. Convenience and ease of accessing the duck meat was also a major plus point.

We also ordered braised eggs on the side. They were a little too dry and hard for my liking.

I am not exactly sure if this was Sambal Kang Kong ($6) or just Kang Kong. I could hardly taste any sambal in them. You can definitely give this a miss.

I never understand how Tofu ($6) go hand in hand with braised duck. The tofu looked and tasted bland. Please save the $6 for a nice dessert after the meal.

It is sad to know that Founder Lim Ah Too, 67, and his wife will be ceasing their operations due to poor health and their children are not willing to take over the business. While the side dishes are not amazing, I still recommend readers to pop by before 20th June 2013 for their boneless Teochew-style Braised Duck before it fades into history.

Like many had said, the duck was indeed very soft but it was not really to my liking as maybe I'm too used to the normal texture of duck meat and prefer that now? Nonetheless, the thick gravy that was generously given by the uncle was really delicious!!! There was a strong taste of herbs that immediately hits you and makes you crave for more as it feels really homely (i kept one more packet to add to my rice later on! HAHA!)
Sad to say, I felt that the amount of meat was too little for an amount of $20. My parents also mentioned that for the price, one would usually get more meat. My mom also told us that uncle Lim just roughly grabbed a chuck of meat from his pre-cut stack of duck meat pile so as to serve his customers quickly. Granted his 45 years of experience and maybe as it's boneless meat, half a duck looks way lesser than normal.

Surprisingly, I really like this combination of tofu and taupok! It was a unique mix that I have never seen before and I must say it matched really well! Not sure if it's due to my love for tofu and taupok but I really like it! It cost $6 and was a hit with the family! The sauce was not extremely starchy and was consistent enough as some was absorbed by the taupok itself.

I would most likely drop by (not that i can anymore ):, but on hindsight) to the store as it's not too out of the way for me. Also, I realized that we should have visited the stall before the closing date was reported in the newspaper which caused many to swarm to the place. Perhaps the quality might have suffered a little as the human traffic volume was too high to handle.
Regardless, I'm really glad to have tried this popular eatery before it closes. Now, we need to find another braised duck stall to match up with uncle Lim's cooking!

[food was transferred to our own bowls, hence it's not in the styrofoam box]

The braise duck was indeed tender and well marinated. However, what distinguishes this common hawker fare is the braise duck sauce that makes you wanna slurp down every single drop. The fragrance of the herbs, seasonings, and countless ducks’ au naturel juices blended perfectly together, making this sauce truly divine and mouth-watering!

However, the same couldn’t be said for the other two side dishes we ordered. The Kang Kong was pretty decent, though nothing much to shout about. The tofu fared the worst. It was not as silky as expected, and to be honest, one of the toughest I’ve tasted. Although the sauce was tasty, this dish was at best, mediocre.

My last visit before kissing goodbye to this famous duck rice eating house as they will be officially closed next week. The crowd was simply over the capacity of what the shops could cater, leaving tables of customers left waiting eagerly for their food and with some even decided to gave up the idea of queuing.

It took us 20 minutes to settle down despite having an empty table setup specially in front of their neighbor shop. We have difficulties in getting the chairs as all are either occupied or reserved. No one had attended to us even if we though we have been frantically waving countless times to catch attention, most probably they could not handle the current order. Luckily for Lim Seng Lee's neighbour's help, my order had prioritized with food served within a minute.

Food
The presentation of braised duck looks disorganized with portions of the meat not coated with the braised sauce and with loose pieces scatter around the plate. Meats looks dry.

Despite the experience of a previous visit, my friend insisted on visiting Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice Eating House before it closed down for good. Sure enough, there was a huge crowd wanting to try out its braised duck rice. Having ate here previously and only recently, I was not too taken in by the hype. The duck rice once again proved normal and not worth the special trip. I like the sambal kangkong this time because the wok hei was more evident. Tofu was so-so.

We were here on Sat 2pm+ but there were still tons of people!

Be warned, there are two separate lines, 1 for takeout and 1 for sitting in (go in and find yourself a seat!) We didn't realize there were two lines until a nice lady told us so.

Food came pretty promptly. Oh, lime juice was kind of sweet, had to ask for extra ice.
Lovely tender duck (actually, I think I've had just as tender duck at Western places, but that was confit and certainly not for less than $10). Mom avers that this is the most tender duck you can find anywhere! It was pretty good, but I actually didn't find it amazing.. Nice comfort food I guess. Yummy soft rice too


Sambal kangkong was delicious!! I love the hae bee (shrimp paste) and chilli.
Also came with this somewhat cornstarchy tofu dish, which I found to be meh. I like soft tofu, but there was a bit too much cornstarch in the sauce.

Apparently this is standard fare for 3 people, and cost $28 or so [including drinks]. Cheap delicious meal! Pity they're closing..

True enough, after the news broke up, there are never ending customer flow for Mr Lee. I even heard that there are faithful regulars queuing up for food before the operation hours daily nowadays. Luckily we were there early and able to grab the seats fast.

Take a look at the surroundings and fixture before everything becomes history...

Price
A total amount of S$57 spend including 5 drinks (3 barley & 2 lime juice) and shared among 6 pax. To think of that in just about one month more we have to bid final goodbye to these yummy braised duck, S$9.50 per pax is reasonable price for our duck fix for the day.

Recommendation / Tips
All main dishes are good to go for a great meal. Everything is recommended in fact.

Foodies would have heard of this place known for its braised duck. I think the braised duck is indeed soft and tender, with the sauce complementing it well. But I think the sauce can still be thicker. This sauce seems a little too watery and diluted. The sambal kangkong was however done pretty well, with the wok-hei very obvious. A must try if you are there. Overall, not worth travelling so far just for this.

And it's not just about the duck at Lim Seng Lee. My winning formula for a satisfying meal: Duck + Tofu + Kang Kong. Half a duck would set you back $20, Tofu $6 and Kang Kong another $7. And this meal would comfortably feed a party of 4-5 pax and leave everyone sated. $6 per person is value for money indeed!

The undisputed star of the meal deserves extra mention. The duck braised till an exquisite tenderness, soaks up the the flavour from Chef Lim's dark sauce and literally sets off fireworks on your palate. Did I also mention that the duck's boneless? =D

Queuing in line for my meal, I managed to get this shot of Chef Lim labouring away at the chopping block, churning out plates of his signature braised duck. He'd look up occasionally, smiling and making small talk with his regulars. Chef Lim and more importantly his braised duck would be sorely missed.

The boss of the duck rice stall will be doing his last business on 22nd June 2013.

This is undeniably my favourite Duck Rice in Singapore!

Nestled in a rather secluded area of Buona Vista, the best form of transport to get to this place is by car or taxi. However, parking lots are extremely limited given that this coffeeshop is situated at the end of a row of terrace shophouses. Coming by bus, you'd have to stop along Pasir Panjang and walk a distance (without shelter) to get there.

Don't be deceived by its relatively inaccessible location though, an unaware passerby may mistake their massive queue for a commotion in an otherwise quiet and secluded environment. They have lots of die-hard fans braving the human queue everyday just to satisfy their craving of arguably the best duck rice in Singapore.

The duck is served with no bones, swimming in a generous amount of thick intense braised sauce. The meat is really tender, just like a juicy chicken drumstick. Weird as I may sound, it's smooth too (I've never described meat as being "smooth").

We (6 of us) showed our love for the meal by finishing every morsel of food; proof of how wonderful the food is. *burp*

I'm extremely sad that the owner is retiring after 46 years of serving this awesome food. I'll definitely go out of my way to eat it a few more times before it officially closes in June.

The meat was really soft and tasty. It is very different from other duck rice as when you bite, the meat is really easy to come off unlike some of them you have to keep chewing till you swallow. No doubt, they live up to their reputation.

However, this plate of duck meat ( 1 duck ) cost $40 which is really expensive
The boss took out all the bones for us and that explains the proportion left on the plate.

There are other dishes such as the braised egg, duck organs and vegetable. The duck meat really pulled it off by making the rest of the dishes insignificant.

Is it worth it to come all the way down for the duck rice?

It is a yes for me for only once. The duck meat is tasty which keeps luring customers back but the price ain't. Since uncle is retiring, why not head down to have a tasty duck rice meal before it is gone.

You might think that it’s just another over hyped store but if you have to ask me, it’s a stall where family, friends and food meets nostalgia. I mean just how many braised duck store could tell the world that they have been serving the same dishes for 45 years?

Yes, there might be but I believe the numbers are far and few…

Located along the entwining roads of South Buona Vista, the famous stall is by no means easily accessible especially if you have someone like me who reside in the east. But if you know where’s Haw Par Villa is then surely you will find the place.

The place’s nothing grand like the restaurants you find amidst the city. Strictly unpretentious with a limited variety of dishes. Just about everyone is having the same mains and sides on their table; duck, eggs, gizzards and the occasional toufu and sambal kang kong.

It’s all about the food so who will really care if they serve them in a messy way? It’s good and it’s worth all the wait!

The duck was good. Tender and better tasting compared to many stalls out there but what makes the duck stands off has surely got to be the sauce drizzled graciously upon it. It’s not overpowering and yet very delicious. So much so that I could down a few bowls of rice just with that thick brown sauce.

But just hold on a minute and continue reading on…

It ain’t cheap that’s for sure. At a whooping price of $40 for a whole duck, Lim Seng Lee might just be one of the most expensive braised duck I had in my life. But that’s the thing about quality. It comes at a price but still people flock down, filling the shop and expecting to savour the supposedly best braised duck in Singapore!

Just look at the queue. It speaks much about them. Wouldn’t you agree?

It’s such a sad sight to see Lim Seng Lee go if you have to ask. I think all of us should visit the place and savour what’s it feels to have braised duck in a nostalgic stall just like the good old days before their legacy come to an end…
