South Buona Vista Road Famous Teochew Boneless Duck Rice @ Sam Leong Road


Fans of famous Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice at South Buona Vista which has closed its door in July 2013 despair not as Mr Lim Ah Too's brother in law, Mr Ang Chiap Teck who has been working with him for the past 28 years has decided to revive the business and opened his own stall at Little India. Occupying a corner unit at Kim San Leng Eating House along Sam Leong Road, Mr Ang has named the stall South Buona Vista Road Famous Teochew Boneless Duck Rice.


When I visited the stall on a Sunday afternoon, business was slow. I noticed the stall is consider quite spacious. They are also serving some of their former signature sambal dishes such as the Sambal Kang Kong, Sambal Sotong, Sambal Prawn and Sambal Tofu.

Braised Duck Leg 3.8/8

I ordered a plate of Braised Duck Leg Rice ($5.50). The beautifully braised duck was tender and covered in a herbal gravy with a nice hint of cinnamon. However, I thought the gravy tasted a tad on the salty side.


I did not visit Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice when it closed its shutter back in July 2013. I actually felt quite regret that I did not do so. I am glad that Mr Ang has decided to revive the recipe at a venue that is more accessible and nearer to my place now.
