Best Roasted Duck in KL

I'm in a mood to post lots of fooddie pics. That's partially because aside from my elective posting, i guessed i killed time by eating and eating and eating everywhere. You know how yumcha sessions also involved food, food and food. Even my mum thinks im too thin now, so yeah, i will be very well fed this holiday definitely. Which only means, you guys will probably leave my blog feeling more hungry at the end of the day. Come, let's all grow fat together. haha. Just kidding.

You guys know how i always need to wait half a day at the airport just to transit flights right? (first timers here). So the last i flew back (bout 2 weeks ago), i decided to try going against the norm. I mean i'm really quite sick of being stuck at lcct for more than 10 hours gluing my butts to nothing but Starbucks comfy couch. Spending that 10 hours anywhere in KL sounds like a much more fun plan aye?

We arrived LCCT at about 9.30am. As we do not want to dragged our 20kg luggage around while we go lepak, we decided to stored them at the luggage counter in LCCT. All these while, i thought it was a free service provided by LCCT but how wrong! There's no free meal in this world. None at all. One have to pay to store their luggage there. And the amount you have to pay totally depends on the size of your luggage. Like if you have a super large luggage or item, it's RM 40, large is RM 30, medium RM 2o and small RM 10. Darn. Luggage babysitters are expensive too.

Then we took the shuttle bus to Salak Selatan station because we wanted to go to Tmn Connaught and the cheapest way there is by KLIA Express from LCCT. So why Tmn Connaught of all the places in KL? Because...................................

we had cravings for *play music teng teng teng teng*

This very famous and delicious roasted duck rice shop in Tmn Connaught. This shop is so famous that if you come at lunch time, confirm no place to sit one. And they can sell hundreds of ducks in a few hours. And even though their roasted ducks and such are quite expensive, you still see long long long long queues of people just waiting to have their turn on the duckies. We arrived at about 11 something so we got ourselves a nice round clean big table and the ambiance was generally quieter than if you come when it's peak hour.


#1- You can opt for oil rice or fragrant rice to go with your duckies and the rest of the stuff but i scared fat, so i opt for fragrant rice. :p (I know really scared fat people will order no rice at all). Of course, we cant missed out the sauce that plays a pivotal role in enhancing the taste of the meat.

#2- While DD was craving and a die hard fan of the roasted duck here, I prefer their yong tau foos instead. I really really like yong tau foos fried to a perfection like this and the whole sauce that goes with the yong tau foos are just beyond words. I mean i dont really know how to describe it but all i can say is it is really really really good and my stomach is already rumbling even as i write this now. If you don't hate yong tau foos, must try no, must eat this.

#3- Pseudo 'zhu chang' aka pseudo pork intestine, roasted siu yok aka roasted pork belly and char siew aka bbq pork.

#4- I said it's pseudo meaning fake pork intestine because this is really not pork intestine at all. In fact it's actually minced pork put into elongated shape and barbecued, hence earning the name. Simply mouth watering also. *drools extensively*. But when you order, all you have to do is tell the boss you wanna 'zhu chang' and they will understand. I don't eat pork belly and the char siew (I'm not a fat char siew lover) but DD said it's awesome too and i believe you can trust his taste. :)


#5 - The highlight, the bomb, the signature of the restaurant are those pieces of roasted duck you see on the right (darker skin colour). Being not an avid duckie lover, i had to admit the ducks served here are really awesome because the skin is really crispy and the meats are juicy and succulent and there's no strong duckie smell. No wonder it's one of the best found in KL. However, i had to say i think their roasted chickens are kind of average only. The meat are a tad too hard and it tasted very dry.

I'm not quite sure how much is it per plate of duck, pork and chicken, but i do know that our total was RM 40. It's expensive for me because my chicken rice usually only cost me RM 3.50-4.50 a plate. ^^ Ah well, what to do when they served something so awesome not many people can beat their standard. At least they are not arrogant so it's a good thing.

I feel hungry already thinking bout all those food. Pavlov's conditioning theory certainly works. At the end of the day, we figured despite a very satisfying and delicious lunch, the cost itself is a bit too much to get away from the airport. Hence, i think i'll still be gluing my butt tightly to one of Starbucks comfy couch the next time. :)
