Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice

Hidden in the sleepy estate of Pasir Panjang just after the infamous South Buona Vista Road, or better known as the 88 bend, is a small row of shops, one of which houses the famous Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice. My gf and I stumbled upon it by chance while we were driving though Pasir Panjang Road and quickly disembarked to try it out since it was already dinner time. We had braised duck rice for 2 with a side dish of tofu.

The tofu was rather mashed up and normal, so nothing much to talk about. However the braised duck was really good. A little chewy yet fibrous and with a very sticky and slightly sweet gravy to boot. And the best part is, it didn't come across as too oily. Another plus goes to the fact that the duck is boneless, which is just great for lazy people like myself. Without a doubt, I prefer this duck rice over Hup Seng's rendition.


Funny looking chilli


The braised duck

Notice the thick gravy?

Dinner for 2 pax came up to $15.90 inclusive of 3 bowls of rice and 2 glasses of barley drink. Not exactly cheap, but I guess you have to pay more for quality.
