Best Duck Rice in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Say hello to the closest contender to chicken rice and this gorgeous bird is full of ghetto, commonly sharing space with its rival and earning its own loyal following. Duck rice is a simple and straightforward dish, either roasted or braised duck coupled with a mound of warm rice and doused with soy sauce and a sprinkling of spring onions. The real deal is obviously the meat. An exemplary one would have luscious layers of smoky skin, fatty layer, and tender meat that offer a satisfying mouthful. Yes, it’s easy to lose your heart to this delectable dish which is why it’s highly vaunted by the locals. These eateries have never failed to be a part of the day-to-day conversation among the people of Johor Bahru. Quack-ly head over!

    Despite mushrooming branches, during peak hours, you’ll feel like walking between aisles as this eatery is widely patronised by meat-guzzlers. No matter how long it takes, remember patience is a virtue and keep peering at the dangling meats behind the glass shelve. The de-boned duck meat is intensely flavourful and it just melts in your mouth after sopping up the soy gravy. You can either lay it on the mattress of rice or have it by the side; it’s up to you and make sure of dipping in their chilli sauce.

    Sin Lam Fatt Roasted Chicken & Duck Rice

    Located at the core of Paya Terubong, this modest-looking restaurant has been an anchor-point for a good duck rice fix in the surrounding nabe. Despite the hordes of patrons, the huge dining space shoves away any need of waiting for an empty table. With deep mahogany hued skin enveloping a succulently emollient meat interior, it’s rather hard to stop once you’ve started. The soy sauce, steaming rice, hardboiled eggs and chilli condiment further elevates the flavours and fragrance of the dish. During little intervals, sip up their Chai Boey Soup!

    Wai Kee @ Sky Hotel

    Sited at the heart of Georgetown, this humble stall is widely hailed as the best-roasted meat and rice stall on the island. Justifying the statement, it’s filled to the brim with locals and trudging tourists. The most vouched meat is the char siew nevertheless walking out without wolfing down their roasted duck is a huge crime. The de-boned meat with gorgeous layers of fat and marbling skin is a real winner, it works wonders together the rich soy sauce, fluffy rice and chilli concoction. If your guilty scale is steeping up, neutralise it with their blanched choy sum showered with oyster sauce.

    Keat Duck Rice

    Rather a lesser known eatery but you'll surely expect a huge crowd as duck lovers from the neighbouring area has made it a second home. During lunch hours, you see tables and chairs fully occupied and tables replete with moreish meats and scoops of rice. Alike the chicken and pork, the duck is subtly roasted to a soft texture that soaks up all the soy goodness. As its cost-friendly, you can constantly hear raining orders for add-ons. Wash it all down with their mildly flavoured soup.

    Kristal Seafood

    Just a stone’s throw away Wisma Perkeso, this unsurprisingly renowned stall opens up at mid-afternoon and shuts at 1.30am, offering a late night respite with fabulous flavours. Roasted to perfection, the duck isn’t oily and the skin is resoundingly crisp and what matters most is the flavours that burst to the fore while chewing the meat and fat. Pleasantly satisfying and it hardly makes any pressure on your wallet, always a good sign for another round.

    Yellow Lips Cafe

    We may be biased over our regular duck rice spot but every here and then, a change is required, both the environment and flavours. First of all, walking into this cosy cafe reminds you nothing about your previous duck rice scenes and their rendition on the latter will blow your mind away. Thick yet tender slices of smoked duck and a bouncy poached egg is perched on steamed rice then sprinkled with sesame seeds and lashes of soy sauce.  The duck is second to none and erases off previous notions you had on duck rice, while the poached egg adds a subtle layer of creaminess.  Wrap up your meal with a quality brew and yes, the environment does feed your Instagram account, unlike others in the listing.

    You wouldn’t ask for a more encouraging name for a food court. The duck rice stall has been a haven for all walks of life in the surrounding area. What sets the apart beside the lip-smacking flavours is the portion of the meat, which completely shrouds the bed of rice then ladled with soy sauce.
