    Be it breakfast or lunch, this well-known stall always does a brisk business, quelling the hunger of duck devotees. The de-boned braised duck is a dish of outstanding merit, liberally ladled with treacly sauce; the meat is full of flavours and fragrance, and pairs delightfully with the warm rice. The proportion of thin layer of fat, silky skin, and lean meat guarantees to tempt you for another plate, and if you’re lured to play around your adventurous scale, opt for their duck innards too. The whole dish is best chomped down with their chili concoction.

    Unlike most places, Restoran Lapan Dua Dua's roasted duck is a lot fatter. It's greasier, juicier and a hell lot more sweeter as well. That being said, the roasted duck isn't in any way disgusting. In fact, it's the opposite. Lovely char on the skin with a slight crisp, tender and incredibly juicy flesh and the additional herbal essence gave it that subtle yet enjoyable taste profile. All and all, it's a bloody good plate of duck rice.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Awesome duck rice in a fairly boring setting.
