Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck & Kway Chap 金记潮州卤鸭 (Chinatown)

Bento Braised Duck Set $6
Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck & Kway Chap 金记潮州卤鸭 has been a stall which I  had always wanted to try. I first got to know about this stall when Melvin, the owner, dropped me an email invitation to try his food. I declined the invitation since I preferred to make an anonymous visit.
 Since I happened to be at Chinatown Complex, I decided to pop by anonymously to try the food.
Being a foodie, I had already knew what I wanted to try. I wanted to try what was unique at this stall, the Bento Braised Duck Set, a creative way to modernise and serve duck rice in a different way.
Bento Braised Duck Set $6
The Bento Braised Duck Set $6 consisted of 3 yam rice balls, radish slices, cucumber slices, salted vegetables, ajitsuke tamago (Japanese runny egg) and braised duck meat. It also came with a bowl of miso soup soup. I would give full marks for the concept, creativity and presentation! What an idea! Photos of this dish on social media would be eye catching. So instagramable!

The braised duck meat was moist and tender unlike those that you may get elsewhere, where they are  sometimes tough and hard to chew. The egg was perfectly executed. I had not expected the yolk to be runny! Wow! As for the soup, it had a very forgiving herbal taste and was amazingly addictive. What I thought could be improved was the radish slices. I would prefer my radish slices to be softer.

I did not have to opportunity to try their Combo Jumbo set $8 yet. I wonder how their kway chap ingredients taste like.
