London Roast Duck
Review (2)
Despite the name, London Fat Duck doesn't actually have anything to do with London, nor did it originate from there... the name is simply a homage to their inspiration from famous Chinese Hong Kong roast duck restaurants in London, England, United Kingdom. Founded in Singapore in May 2015 from a collaboration between the Fei Siong Group and Akashi Group, London Fat Duck is naturally known for their famous Cantonese style roast ducks. Sourced from Silver Hill Farm located in Ireland, these ducks are free roaming, grain-fed, handled by hand, and rested in a calm space with relaxing music playing before being slaughtered, thus resulting in more succulent duck meat.Ambience at London Fat Duck calls to mind the bustling Chinese tea houses of old. Noisy and cramped, with solid wooden furniture tightly packed together in the brightly lit area, the floor has a general uncleanliness about it, with bits of waste food around and a slightly slippery texture. At least the tables are given a quick wipe down, though I suggest also wiping down your cutlery before eating. Not a comfortable place for long lingering meals, this is more suited to quick, eat and leave situations.Service at London Fat Duck is decent, with staff being friendly, greeting diners and having them quickly seated. That's provided you don't have to queue, which normally takes up to 20 minutes or more during peak periods. Staff are quick to clean empty / dirty tables, and food is also served quickly, usually less than 10 minutes of waiting even during peak periods. If you do need to wait for orders, staff will also warn you in advance, and suggest alternatives. It's also rather easy to attract their attention, and they will accomodate to special requests if possible. However, I totally hated that they refill cold tea instead of warm or hot tea.Food at London Fat Duck is Chinese Cantonese / Hong Kong style, with a focus on roast meats and dim sum. The highlight is of course their succulent roast duck! Taste of most other dishes is decent, not very memorable or attractive to repeat diners. Portions are designed for communal dining, though there are also individual portions. Prices are wallet-friendly and affordable, budget about SGD $27 per person for a full meal here. In fact, for the quality of food you get here, dining at London Fat Duck is actually more value for money than other places!The star item on the menu, the Signature Roast Duck (SGD $26 Half, $48.80 Whole) lives up to the hype, and more. I daresay it's among the best roast ducks I've eaten, and furthermore, better than even some restaurant versions at higher prices! The duck meat is savoury sweet, with a moist and tender texture, while the duck skin is crisp, savoury salty, crunching beautifully. For such an affordable price, to get this kind of restaurant quality, is a winner in my book. Highly recommended!The Golden Custard Pandan Bun (SGD $5.20) was excellent! The same sweet savoury, crisp polo bun crust has been infused with fragrant pandan / screwpine leaf, already lifting the overall flavour. But inside is the creamy, buttery, rich and decadent molten custard, piping hot and luscious. Totally unhealthy, but so tasty and so good. Highly recommended!Hated both the Congee Seafood Ting Zai Style (SGD $7.80) and the Congee Century Egg With Shredded Pork (SGD $7.80) here. While the texture is correct, being thick yet not clumpy, the overall taste was weirdly sweet, like they had added too much sugar. Terrible, we didn't even finish both bowls. Skip this.Full London Fat Duck review: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2016/03/london-fat-duck.html continue reading

Full review's at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2015/09/london-fat-duck.htmlThe food was a bit of a hit-and-miss, and shockingly, the duck was lacklustre, whereas the barbecued pork was excellent.Also, the Scotts Square tenant is an occupiers-liability lawsuit waiting to happen; the floors were so oily that, even with my rubber-soled heels, it was a feat trying to keep from slipping. It was a nightmare walking in and out the slippery floors.We had:1) Signature London Roast Duck ($12.80 for regular): gamey and chewy and dry. Terribly disappointing, considering its signature dish status. Suffice to say, we didn't finish this.2) Barbecue Pork with Honey ($14.80): saving grace of the meal and absolutely smashing. Beautifully caramelized with a sticky honeyed glaze, and meltingly luscious, this was perhaps the best char siew I've had in a while. I'll return just for this.3) Hongkong Wanton Noodle ($6.80): decent, if a little pedestrian.4) London Roast Duck Noodle ($7.80): disappointing that the noodles was better on its own, plain, without the duck, which was double whammy with its gamey taste and lean breast cut. continue reading
