Uncle Duck @ Berjaya Times Square

Recently, I found myself stepping into the Berjaya Times Square regularly. Don't get me wrong, it's not because of the recent economic Tsunami, but for the eateries! One, for the World famous Donut, Krispy Kreme and secondly is for Uncle Duck HK Restaurant, 得哥火锅餐厅. This is Chef Marco Ma's (from Yue Kee HK) first branch, as his first venture was 港飮港食 Hong kong Food Culture in Plaza Low Yat LG. I've been there numerous times, never once disappoint me.

His specialty is obviously his Roasted Duck - very crispy skin and so aromatic with his special marinade spices "that one gives in to temptation and chew on the bones a bit".

Up next is his hand-made wantan noodles which I actually witnessed him working on his noodles in his kitchen during one of my visits. Besides, his squid balls are so springy and one could even chew on bits of squid.

Uncle Duck's Steamboat is rather special, it is served in an individual pot filled with the selected broth on an electronically-controlled hotplates which is installed in every seating spot. I tried the Duck Congee Stock - amazingly duckie-licious and also the unsual Fish & Tomato Stock. There are also TomYam, Chicken Stock, Satay and Hot & Spicy SOup (with 7types of Chilies!).

There's an interesting side-order which I have yet to try, the CuttleFish Noodles - the paste is wrapped with a plastic 'piping' bag which one could squeeze it out in noodle-form and cook it straight in the pot.

Uncle Duck also offers some of the HK-Roadside-snacks such as the Curry Balls, Pig Skin, SharkFin chicken soup etc..
Last but not least,
the HK Milk Tea (Lai CHa)
is another 'Must Try' !
