After posting about the Loong Foong roast duck rice at Taman Paramount, many of you suggested to me that I should try the perpetually crowded Sunrise restaurant nearby. Since Sunrise only opens for lunch, I had to wait till last Saturday to give it a try.

For two of us, we ordered half a duck. If it sounds like a lot of duck, it was! But since everyone else was ordering the same amount for two, we sort of agreed to it without thinking twice. As it was relatively early (11am), the restaurant wasn’t actually crowded yet, it took only about 5 minutes for food to be served.
The big plate of duck comes with two small bowl of soup (something loong foong lacks), a bowl of sauce, chili, and two plates of white rice. The duck meat itself was tender and good, with the skin roasted to perfect golden brown. The soup though, was a mixture of sour, sweet, and salty. I don’t really know what to make of it and didn’t end up drinking much of it anyway, it just tasted a bit too weird even for me.
glorious roast duck…
Comparing the Loong Foong and Sunrise roast duck rise, I will have to give my preference towards the former. Though the taste of the duck skin and duck meat didn’t differ too much, the sauce that came with Loong Foong’s roast duck was much better. The sauce from Sunrise basically tasted like diluted soya sauce, without the distinct duck rice sauce taste. However, if you love duck skin, you can order extra skin at Sunrise, as I found out a little too late.
The lunch was slightly over RM 20, not bad for half a duck. So if you’re going for duck rice for lunch, you won’t regret Sunrise; but if you can wait till dinner time, Loong Foong is the place to go.
excellent map from yours truely, =)
