San Kee Duck Rice Taman Johor JB 上记卤鸭饭.面 JK1452
Came to San Kee Duck Rice 上记卤鸭 in Taman Johor wet market at the suggestion of Jeff, my JB foodie buddy.
Taman Johor 巴刹的上记是我最喜欢的传统潮州卤鸭摊位之一。如果您也欣赏很轻微的新鲜鸭味, 草药香味, 和咸味 - 配合得很平衡, 您应该也会喜欢这一 家。如果您偏爱比较咸的, 可能不是那么能满足您的口味。几时您有空, 给上记卤鸭一个尝试，自己品尝 :-D 。
Taman Johor wet market is an old rustic, dingy laid back place where the community do their marketing and have simple meals.
Mr Lim and his wife have been running this braised duck and pork innards stall here for nearly 30 years.
Our order of braised duck and pork innards with rice came to RM14. I actually wanted duck innards but only pork offal was available.
The braised duck slices were laid on a bed of braised pig skin and innards, and slathered with a light gooey brown sauce.
The thin slices of braised duck breast were tender and smooth. We could taste the subtle natural sweet duck flavour beneath the gentle herbal and savoury flavours. This is the way I like my braised duck most - tender flesh and all the flavours of duck, herbs and umami are well balanced and just subtly present.
We didn't come here for the braised pork innards, just for the duck. But, we love San Kee's braided pork a lot after tasting it. It has the same delicate balance and subtlety as San Kee's duck. Finesse, in other words. Yeah, it may sound odd - I'll say these are elegant braised pork intestines ;-D
Things are done the old way at San Kee, just like these freshly fried shallot crisps laid out to cool and dry. Nope, no factory fried wood chips here.
->> San Kee is one of my favourite traditional Teochew braised duck stalls. You will like this too if you appreciate subtle delicate herbal tastes, including hints of duck flavour. May not be so tasty if your preference is for more robust savouriness and the duck flavours well masked by the braising sauce. Give San Kee a try and taste it for yourself :-D
(Mr Lim's younger brother runs Shangi Ji duck mee at Jalan Lumba Kuda in downtown JB.)
