Having been to Alexandra Village Food Centre many times, New Market Teochew Braised Duck Rice is one of those stalls that I have yet to try. During my recent visit, I decided to brave the long queue and got a plate of duck meat and braised ingredients for lunch.
Once at the front of the stall, you will get a clear view of the different braised ingredients that is available at the stall. You can mix and match to your preference or just go for the braised duck if you are not that adventurous.
Mixed Braised Duck Platter 4.2/5
I had a plate of Mixed Braised Duck platter which comes up to $16.50 with a bowl of rice. I ordered quarter braised duck, duck liver, braised intestines, braised tofu,braised egg and pig skin. The braised sauce is darker and richer than most places, with a distinct herbal taste to it. In fact, it has a slight hint of bitterness probably from the herbs but not throwing the balance off.
The duck meat itself was quite tender too. I enjoyed having it with chilli sauce which is actually quite spicy with a tad of tanginess. While I also enjoyed the rest of the braised items, I thought the intestines were a bit gamey.
Overall I have a satisfying lunch at New Market Teochew Braised Duck Rice. I don't mind returning for a meal if I have craving for braised duck.
