long queue.

i wonder why after trying the food?

but there’s always a reason. so i guess most people actually like the food. & in the end things are relative, just a matter of comparison.

the kueh was ok, soft. the gravy/sauce though not so tasty.

the intestines & pig skin were good, texture & taste, tau kua also good, taupok so so not soft enough not well infused yet, kong bak too fatty.

lor nerng (braised egg) was good. chai buay was not. not tasty like those teochew muay ones.

the duck was the poorest of the lot. duck not “pang” (flavourful) at all, meat too soft.. i forgot to take photo as it came last.

(cheng heng’s duck was like less than 1/2 the serving of happy duck’s 1/2 duck for S$18 in the photo below).

& it was S$26 for very little food.

1/2 braised duck S$18

bukit merah view FC happy duck’s 1/2 braised duck S$18

pigs ear, intestines, pig skin & lor bak S$10

so as i said everything just a matter of comparison.

c/w the S$30 duck & kueh chap lunch for 5pax guys i had at happy duck bukit merah view food centre on 16.6.2015?

for me, actually simply no comparison la..how to compare???

& if it was just a matter if taste & not price, then my own lor arh would be just a lot better lor..

lol! 🙂
