Duck Rice @ Whampoa Hawker Centre
The last time I ate here was about 4 years ago, before the renovations. The new hawker centre is alot brighter, cleaner and more well-ventilated than what I recalled of the old hawker centre.
A traditional Teochew braised duck should have a thin, yet richly flavoured gravy. Its a pity that they decided to make their gravy so starchy. I guess its partly because some people tend to associate a thick gravy with richness of flavour, whilst it might be partially true (in some cases), the fact is that such thick gravies are essentially thickened with starch. If you're watching your weight, this is a dangerous combo as most gravies contain alot of fat.
Maybe it was all a misunderstanding and the guy probably thought that my pronunciation was very bad. Whatever the case, I couldn't help but be reminded of a lawyer joke :
What's the difference between a lawyer and a liar?
No offence to lawyers, but I'm sure you guys have read/heard many worse jokes, right? :)
