Kai Duck, Ngee Ann City

Kai Duck, Ngee Ann City

We came across Kai Duck (#05-10/11 Ngee Ann City, 391 Orchard Road, tel : +65 6235 5419) by chance while looking for dinner. 

Kai Duck, chilled tomato sesame sauce

Started off with some refreshing chilled tomatoes in sesame sauce. I couldn't figure out what those jellied bits below the tomato were.

Kai Duck, minced duck tofu soup

Their innocuous looking minced duck and tofu soup was quite nice.

Kai Duck, peking duck skin crackers

Peking duck skin on crackers were pretty tasty too. I noticed that they scraped the flavourful fat off beneath those crisp skin. Why?!

Kai Duck, lettuce dace black bean

We got stir fried lettuce with dace and fermented black bean for the obligatory greens. The flavour from the dace and black beans made this pretty good eating.

Kai Duck, braised tofu mustard greens

Liked their braised tofu with preserved mustard green.

Kai Duck, steamed patin preserved olives

The steamed patin with preserved olives was not bad too.

Kai Duck, rice

Noticed that the dishes that came after the soup and small bites were all robustly flavoured and generally great with steamed rice. This was not by accident.
