This review will be brought to you by Joash and I, so it’ll be an #AyeJayThang!
Hopefully, this will be the start of our couple series so you guys can enjoy our different perspectives!We had the chance to try out House of Roasted Duck, which has 2 branches in Singapore; at Jalan Sultan’s Sultan Plaza (newly opened in June 2016!) and Bugis Village.
They serve authentic Hong Kong cuisine, priding themselves in their roasted delights such as the Peking Duck and Roasted Duck.
However, we were pleasantly surprised that their other dishes were just as good too!
Shrimp Wanton Soup ($8)
Her: The wantons are freshly wrapped everyday and served in a premium broth that’s boiled for over 5 to 6 hours. I love how crunchy the Shrimp Wantons are and how they remind me of Hong Kong with every bite!My mum said they looked really good even just in the photos! When she finally had a chance to try a bowl, she was bowled over. (see what I did there? HAHAHA)
SIGNATURE: Peking Duck – 2 Styles ($52 for whole)
Her: I’ve always had trouble deciding between which of the two styles of duck to have: Roasted or Peking? Roasted Duck has all the juicy meat, but the Peking duck with the crispy skin is just heavenly! At House of Roasted Duck having the best of both worlds is possible!Him: And having the Peking duck wrapped in the flour crepe 春饼 is definitely one of the must-haves here!
Rice w Barbecued Pork ($6.80)
Her: The Barbecued Pork is succulent, and nicely balanced with its sweet and savoury taste!
Twin Combo Noodle (Soy Sauce Chicken and Roasted Pork) $7.80 for the soup version, $8.80 for the dry version.
Her: Their soy sauce chicken is really really good. Its tender and flavourful and MUST be dipped with their special ginger scallion sauce for the perfect taste.
The noodles tend to be on the saltier side because of the sauce, you’ve been cautioned!Him: The noodles have just the right amount of bite, though.
Congee with Cuttlefish, Fish Slices, Pig Skin & Peanuts ($6.80)
Her: Mega love for the thick consistency of the porridge! They are also really generous with the ingredients inside this bowl. Special mention to the crispy youtiao! Their congees are painstakingly slow-cooked over a small fire for 3 to 4 hours and uses fresh ingredients as well as premium calrose rice from Australia.
Definitely also my mum’s favourite when I brought her here!Him: THIS. If you want your food to massage it’s way down to your belly and assure you that all is well in the world. THIS. IS. IT. Gonna’ come here and tuck into a bowl of this delicious goodness whenever the world starts becoming too cruel for my fragile soul. (dramatic much)
The interior at the Sultan Plaza branch is really cushy so you’d definitely feel super comfortable and fully enjoy your dining experience there!
Thank you Chef Lau for the delicious meal!

5 best ways to eat Peking Duck
1. Poutine w Peking DuckAs I’d be heading to Canada for my exchange in August, we thought Poutine topped with Peking Duck would be great! Imagine that extra crispiness on top of all that curd, yummy sauce and fries!
2. Peking Duck Pizza
Well, we figured if you can have smoked duck pizza, why not Peking Duck right?
3. If you don’t already know how to enjoy this dish,
the best way to enjoy the Peking duck is to take a piece of the small and thin pancake in one hand, put three to four slices of the duck onto the pancake, top off with the vegetables and seasonings provided.
Finally, roll up the pancakes with the fillings and eat it!
4. Savoury Mille feuille with alternating layers of crepe and Peking DuckWould prolly look a bit like this.
5. Peking Duck Lettuce Cups
Definitely a healthier choice!
