i dropped by 6th avenue around 4pm to take a late lunch today on 4.11.2015.
was deciding whether to have the nice roast chicken rice which i like or to try the duck noodles.
this tao xiang kitchen had been around for a while & previously occupied the front stall but now have taken up the stall to the back of the coffeeshop.
it is supposedly helmed by a hong kong chef. i used to take the roast duck a few times many years back but have always found the stallholder & servers very abrasive & unfriendly, basically the nazi chef type. at the time, i thought the roast duck was pretty good & flavourful.
so today i decided to try the roast duck again, since i have not done for so long.
the stall holder was not very friendly but still tolerable today. but it’s the food that counted.
however i found it quite poor today. the drumsticks noodles was S$7. at S$5.50 i would find it very mediocre. at S$7 i think it was quite below par.
there was roast & duck flavours but it was just very average for me.
i think by comparison the roast duck at joyful palace 怡乐坊@ food loft clementi was just so much better! and still cheaper.
i tossed the noodles. noodles was loose & qq. chilli was good. both the noodles with the sauce & the chilli were slight salty.
overall, it was a expensive & forgettable S$7 roast duck drumstick noodles. don’t think i will try this stall again.
there is though a new zi char stall there that occupies the prvious tao xiang front stall location straddling to stall units that served fish head steamboat & crab beehoon (both the thick beehoon soup & the thin wet fried beehoon styles). i would want to try that.
