Ever since the news of Mr Lim's retirement broke up, the place has more queues than usual and parking was scarce. One can actually realized that the power of mass media is so great. It took us quite sometime to secure a 6 person seats. We have to squeeze in one small round table with neighbor table's chair blocking our way.

My first visit was like about 12 years back. In my all years of patronage, the taste of the food never fail us. If you read the reviews, the duck meat are as good as they said. This teochew style boneless braised duck meat with its scrumptious gravy had won many Singaporeans stomach and hearts over the years.

A plate soy sauce-based gravy flavored with cinnamon and other herbs and spices of duck meat shared by 6. This is the signature dish of all.

The way Mr Lim's prepare the food may appeared to be simple and ordinary but in fact is was way good than one expects. The meat are tender, even the rice smell good with the gravy.

Besides having the duck as the main, these are the dishes that we will order during my visit. The Toufu and kang kong with dried prawns (sambal kang kong). They may seems very simple dishes to us but these small dishes makes one feels very at home.

Service
The uncle who insist in speaking English looks the same, the way he speaks, the way he dressed, the way he total up one's bill in a dreaming manner, the dishes/drinks they offered has never changed. Everything you see, eat and feel the time had stop in the 1960s. We always get to laugh and giggle when they asked if we want duck "spare parts" when they are referring to internal organs of the ducks.

Ambience
Not fogetting that the rustic interior and exterior of Lim's Eating House has stayed the same through the years.

Price
The portion of may have shrink in size due to inflation but seems like the food goers will always come back once in a while to patronize the food and forget about the price hike.

Recommendation / Tips
They are closing and no intention of letting their children to take over. I will definitely miss a good teochew braised duck!
