Run Ji Cooked Food (润记熟食), Chinatown Food Centre

Run Ji Cooked Food (润记熟食), Chinatown Food Centre
Spurred by the delicious meal of braised duck at Tai Dong, I was encouraged to seek out another similar stall to continue changing my opinion of braised duck. Run Ji Cooked Food (Blk 335 Smith Street, #02-140 Chinatown Complex Food Centre), a straightforward stall as such was another which was brought to my attention recently.

Being hungry, we pulled little punches and topped up the order of the bird with innards and eggs. I enjoyed this one as well even though they didn't have a sauce which was as flavourful as Tai Dong. The interesting thing that set this stall apart from the rest was that they had hae bi hiam (spicy dried shrimp) as a topping option for the rice that they served. While it wasn't one of the best I've had, it did add a dimension to the relatively tame flavour of the sauce. The food wasn't mind blowing but it was also a simple and comforting meal with little fuss. I couldn't say that I would mind returning.
