Onto the food!

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!
