Living in Malaysia, we have all known what makes a good plate of chicken rice. From a fragrant and oily rice with slightest hint of ginger, with roasted chicken -so perfectly roasted that the skin is crisp and yet the insides are white, tender and juicy; garnished with slices of cucumber and topped with spring onions and coriander, that's how good chicken rice should be.
On the other hand, only a fair few knows how to discern a good plate of roasted duck rice but rest assured if you venture forth to Meng Meng Roasted Duck restaurant located in Taman Mount Austin, Johor Bahru, you will be enlightened to what a good plate of roasted duck rice entails.
