New Rong Liang Ge Cantonese Roast Duck & Double Boiled Soup
I don’t always carry my camera everywhere I go. I used to do it, but because my bag is always very heavy, so sometimes I will not bring it along. But it is always during those times that I will be eating something blog-worthy and end up regretting not having a camera with me. Just like this time, I was out for an assignment, very tired and sweaty after a busy morning. Who knows, we decided to stop by for Bugis for lunch and I suggested New Rong Liang Ge. Ah huh, now where’s my camera?
To just enjoy the food quietly or share it with my readers – that was the first question that came up to my mind. So I apologize for the lousy photo quality, but hey, this is worth trying for roast duck lovers! During lunch time, you can easily spot this stall by the long snake queue formed by residents and office crowd.
New Rong Liang Ge sells everything roasted, from the usual char siew, or roasted pork meat, to roasted duck as well as double boiled soups. The queue was orderly and upon reaching your turn, you place your order and the guy at the counter will announce it on the top of his voice in an interesting tone. Everyone of us has our own favourites, some prefer sio bak while I prefer their roast duck (that’s what they are famous for!). So we decided to order a trio platter consisting of char siew, roast pork and roast duck to share.
The roast duck is definitely my favourite and it’s easy to see why – the skin is crisp and fragrant and the meat is tender and moist – just how you want a roast duck to be. They only select about 3kg of meat to maintain its tenderness and seasoned with more than 10 types of spices. Just by looking at it, I am already drooling. Even without the sauce, it tasted delicious with the chilli sauce.
I requested for a fat piece of char siew but unfortunately, it still didn’t live up to my expectation. The char siew had a little fat but was still dry. To make things better, the roast pork skin is so crispy it crackles in the mouth. The meat is firm yet moist, and a delight to savour. Control of the fire is very important here.
What really gets me going is the daily soup. It was raining that day and the nourishing soup came just in time. We had the lotus with pork ribs soup and salted vegetable duck soup. The former was rather bland but the latter was good, the essence of the veggie and the sweetness from the pork rib were fully infused into the broth.
The plate of rice that was drenched with a dark sweet sauce was slightly too sweet for my liking but works well for my other friends. Apparently, they have about 3 different sauces to pair with the different roasts. The price is quite reasonable, we only paied $21 for the roast duck combination, together with two bowls of soup. I won’t mind coming back again for their roast duck!
