Old Airport Road (HK) Roasted Delights – Why Didn’t I Discover Their Roast Duck Earlier?
Old Airport Road (HK) Roasted Delights is one of the finalists for SPH Food Masters 2018. To be honest, I arrived at the stall without any expectations — probably because I am not a fan of roast duck to begin with. Well, this is different.
There was a queue, but it moved very quickly. The menu is very clear. There’s roast duck, char siew and sio bak. There are also pictures of soups, but they are not available anymore.
This eatery has been sending out roast meat, char siew and roast duck for more than 30 years. I ordered a plate for 2 to share. The roast duck is the highlight here, and it is of restaurant quality. The glistening duck skin was crispy and the first bite of the duck was extremely delightful and satisfying. During the roasting process, duck fat is infused into the meat, resulting in a remarkable juiciness that is hardly encountered. It’s difficult to do a good roast duck, and I am so glad to be introduced to this stall.
They offer three different sauces to pair with the meats – plum sauce, tangy chilli sauce, and sambal chilli. The roast duck tastes even better with the sweet and sour plum sauce!
I am a loyal fan of 88 Hong Kong Roast‘s sio bak but this sio bak was not bad as well. The skin was crispy and the meat was not too salty. I didn’t get the chance to speak to the owner, nor try the char siew, but I will definitely be back soon. Why didn’t I discover this earlier?
