Today, I went to try out Sin Hai Cheng 新海珍, another of the famous four big braised duck shops in JB’s “duck central” in Taman Sri Skudai.

Sin Hai Cheng has built up its own following of fans. Even at when I was there, the restaurant was still doing a brisk business with a steady stream of customers.

The taste of braised duck has a lot to do with the skill in cutting the meat. This gentleman may be young but he has already mastered the art of cutting the duck so that its best flavours are presented.

The nicely sliced duck meat was tender and tasted smoky and naturally sweet. Even after dipping in the light braising sauce it was not too salty.

The thin gizzard slices were slightly firm yet still tender. It tasted slightly salty and naturally sweet.

The kway teow doused with braising sauce was generously topped with fresh spring unions and fried shallots. When stirring the kway teow, waffs of shallot oil fragrance raised to the nose – hmm… nice.

My meal of duck and gizzard with a kway teow and soup came to RM7. Definitely an excellent meal at a reasonable price.
