went JB with my OPS buddies. KS drove toyota picnic, comfortably 6pax.
we parked near restoran ya wang 鸭皇, 28 jln segget on 28.8.2017.
the last time i came with my RI friends, we did not drive but walked from city square, had early lunch at kam long fish head, and passed by restoran ya wang. did not eat here as already eaten at kam long.
ya wang was crowded at 11.40am.
the menu prices all looked ok, except that the bill we had some items didn’t seem to follow these listed prices???
do some eye exercise. see anything you like?
i had michael jackson. haha! heard of it a lot, first time i actually tried it.
i like this one here, the tau huay not sweet, and the cheng chow texture made it nice.
we ordered 1/2 roast duck, want to eat other dishes, and thinking of the many meals we going to have later on?? haha! ^^
we ordered the 十全鸭. that is supposed to be they signature.
recently my RI friends went to sentosa, said ya wang shop bought over by ah yik imperial, still serving same roast duck, but not good, didn’t taste the same.
this roast duck here felt the same way.
still good, too much sauce, skin not crispy, and tasted a bit odd or off!
this duck ok but no better than any roast duck in singapore, so no point to come specially to eat it…
char siew was excellent, roast pork very good except the end bits harder…
the 1/2 白斩鸡 was an after-thought, accidental addition.
surprisingly the chicken was very good. all of us thought the chicken was better than the duck!
somehow i had impression that 白斩鸡 in malaysia quite lousy (like i thought in hong kong as well) c/w singapore. but this chicken is sweet (kampong chicken/ a big one), whereas singapore 白斩鸡 is smooth but generally tasteless by comparison.
many tables were ordering this tilapia in nonya sauce.
so we ordered too. they served us a wrong fish, a seabass done the same style. seabass more expensive than tilapia but we all thought tilapia tasted better for this preparation so they corrected it & served us the tilapia.
tilapia was very nice. fish was very fresh, tender, smooth & bouncy & the tangy sauce was quite perfect to kill the “mud” taste.
we all liked this dish & the chicken best.
the stir-fried potato leaves with fermented bean curd was done very well. very nice dish! 🙂
the bill RM$162.60 for 6pax lunch cheap by singapore standard of course.
they charged RM$28 for the chicken, but the menu showed RM$8 for upper quarter & RM$10 for lower quarter. not a good practice! 🙂
anyway we were satisfied we had an enjoyable lunch at a price much lower than singapore.
