One of my all time favorite Chinese dishes is roast duck, the glistering fats and crispy skin makes for a perfect combination in texture and taste. Being someone from Penang, a place famous for it’s hawker foods and Nyona dishes, I must confess that the standard of roast meat (be it roast pork, chicken, or duck) is generally far superior in Klang Valley than my home state.

roast meat galore

One of the most famous places when it comes to roast duck (and goose) would be Soon Fatt Peking Roast Duck. A hawker stall with make shift zinc roof tucked below a big tree by the busy road that is Jalan Pasar in KL. There is no luxury of air conditioning, table cloth, or even leveled ground; but I am always prepared to sacrify a little in comfort for delicious food.

Our initial goal coming to this place was to try their famous roast goose (which I wrote blogged here), but as luck has it, they did not get their supply for the day and recommended that we try the sesame roast duck instead.

We took up the recommendation and went for half a duck, a portion of roast and bbq pork, and a serving of sour and spicy vegetable to go with some yau fan (oily rice) for four of us.

The sesame roast duck was one of the best dishes I’ve tasted in a while, my previous experience in this type of preparation was confined to sesame roast chicken at wedding dinners, but this duck was heaps better. The aroma of sesame fused with perfectly roasted tender duck meat and that crispy skin makes for a wonderful combination that tasted so well even sans the plum sauce.

The bbq pork (char siu) too is on par with some of the bests in town, and while the roast pork (siu yoke) wasn’t overly impressive, it still held up pretty good in the taste department. The sour and spicy vegetable (xuen lat choy) provide a departure from the greesy and meaty taste that is very welcoming.

The meal came up to around RM 50+ for four of us, it was a very fulfilling lunch despite the fact that we did not get the goose. I’m planning for the next trip where I get the roast goose and sesame duck all in one meal!

  8. Hmm…the duck looks like a goose with it’s long neck. 🙂

  9. Aiyoh, your Pudu Jail icon so sad one.. surely not everyone go there die one hor?? haha!

    Am not really so familiar with Pudu side of town – I spend most of my time on the other side of Jalan Imbi.

    I think every town has its own specialty – like, even Nibong Tebal has its own unique laksa quite different from Penang Island..

  10. Jade Zheng,

    Huai Bin,
    Hahaha, can’t really differentiate other than the size.

    ooo true true, and pudu jail, well, i’m sure they’ve executed some ppl before. :X

  11. I’m also a big fan for Mr.Donald, must check it out one of this day, my gripe to Jalan Pasar is difficult to locate a parking!

  23. Chua,
    Whopps, wrongly categorized, changed.

  24. what is their operation hour? At lunch ?

  25. Tried it on sat. Not coming back. More than RM12 per head. Kids hated the char siu. My maid can much better. KY I wonder what kind of taste bud you have. Not gonna visit this webbie anymore.

    • friend: if you’ve ordered the goose things would be expensive, that’s pretty much the norm so far as goose goes here. I did like the char siu there tho, I guess we probably have differing taste buds. 🙂
