Modern Peking Duck, ION Orchard

I've always wondered about this Peking duck kiosk (2 Orchard Turn, #B4-75 ION Orchard, tel : +65 6509 8539) whenever I happened by. Deep inside, I was thinking that they couldn't be that great despite the queue. So I gave them a go and it was quite disappointing as Peking ducks go. The skin wasn't the least crispy and were a little chewy. My heart died a little when I saw them scraping away the bits of fat underneath the skin as they were preparing them. So the flavour as we know of them were pretty much out the window. I guess these things would be okay if you just thought of them as little duck in crepe snacks rather than Peking duck. Don't think I'll buy from them again.

People don't even queue up there anymore, far cry from opening days!
