Tong Kee Traditional Braised Duck Rice @ Haig Road Market Food Centre

At 11am, we the foodies are here for the braised duck which Tong Kee Traditional Braised Duck Rice (东记传统卤鸭) is famous for.

Guang Zhou Kitchen – Wanton mee by retired head chef from Crystal Jade

After Seetoh published an article on Makansutra about this particular stall in Chinatown, it has drawn lots of attention. I went for lunch with Uncle Smart one day and there was a long queue, all wanting to try Mr Tang’s food. I think one of the best thing about retirement is, still being able to do what you love.
