Down Under: Just for the duck

For some strange reason, we wanted to eat roast duck and this place was the nearest to us. The place seems to be run by Hongkongers, judging by the Cantonese that was spoken here. This is probably right as I do not know of anyone who is better at making roast meats than the Hongkongers. The roast meats I am referring to are the Cantonese roast meats like roast duck, roast pork, char siew, etc.

The place was already filled downstairs and so we made our way upstairs. This turned out to be a blessing as it was quieter. But there is very little decor upstairs, not that there was much downstairs either. But we were here for the food and not the decor, so that did not really matter to us. The waiter we met downstairs did not seem very friendly but the one who served us upstairs was really good and even served us sliced oranges for dessert, on the house. The oranges too were sweet navel oranges. We had absolutely no complaints at all about the food. Our Chinese stomachs were truly satisfied.

Tofu nuggets with sauce. A nice light dish.

This place is famous for its Peking Duck as the name of the restaurant implies. However, we did not want to eat Peking duck and instead asked for a roast duck. It was good! The skin was really crispy and the meat tender. It was served with plum sauce.

Sweet and sour pork that was authentically cooked.
