Why do we drive for 30 minutes past 2 ERP for our favorite food?

I love this place. The cost to get there is probably more than the cost the food with the ERP and the COE.

They even have a competitor next door who serve the overflow when this place is full.

Somewhat average with improperly washed cutlery   To see the full review with pictures, go here.   This is a crazy crowded place to eat lunch – we had to park the car way deep into the surrounding private housing estate during one weekday lunch! I think it’s also pretty out of the way for everybody so you kind of have to drive to get here.   I didn’t really like this place, more for hygiene reasons than for food reasons. Also I think duck rice ought to be the yam rice variety, not just white rice, which is what they served.  Not even if they ladle some corn-starch gravy on top!   So I don’t really know why this place is so popular. Pretty much the only draw I can see is that the duck is sliced incredibly thin and is very tender.   All the side dishes were forgettable – the kang kong with not nearly enough sambal and the tofu in some viscous liquid.  No, I don’t really think people come here for those. So my main quibble was that they gave me improperly washed cutlery and crockery – my bowl/fork/spoon smelt of raw poultry through the entire meal, and it was pretty disgusting.   That said, nothing else was truly outstanding, not the duck (which is braised, not roasted), not the rice, not the veggies. It’s pricey and the service sucks – they can spot a newbie in the establishment from a mile away and give you all the optional fixings which you later have to pay for (napkins). They also have a system of referring you to their other equally harried colleagues when you’re looking for a spot to sit. The food takes eons to come, so one can never be sure what is happening with it and if the order you placed with the staff was placed with an order-taking staff and not simply forgotten. We were seated in this spot for ages and ages nobody approached us to take our order, which is simply silly business practice considering how crowded they were.   In all we paid something like $17 for our two bowls of rice, one plate of duck (for two), veggies, tofu, and perhaps a drink, I don’t remember. This is really expensive for hawker food I’m thinking, considering I already had to drive here. I’ve never been back!

I was so eager to try this well known duck rice as featured in Asiaone. With high expectations come with high disappointment and this applies here as well. My heart sank when tucked into my expensive 1 pax meal, the meat was miniscule in portion and the gravy was too thick and cold. My brown rice was average and acceptable. However, the chilli was so sad, unlike the usual fried and dry chilli paste, its watery and almost 'un-dipable'.

I really do hope to see improvements though. I am quite sure previously at South Buona Vista Road, it was much better...
