The Place Started at Jalan Besar’s Long House, Soon Kee Duck Rice found home at Ang Mo Kio in recent years after the second Long House along Upper Thomson Road made way for the construction of new MRT lines. Just from the stall front, you can see how much media coverage the stall has received over its decades of operations, an indication of its popularity since.
Located at the same coffee shop as Fish & Chicks and Sin Cuisine, Long House Soon Kee (Boneless) Braised Duck Rice is an institution and diners should expect a queue when visit Soon Kee.
The Food The duck here is fully de-boned, and the gravy (or I usually referenced this as the ‘zum’) is of the luscious texture. Very tender and moist duck meats, which I will strongly encourage you to have with yam rice.
What perhaps made Soon Kee stood out is its consistency over the years, and the ideal balance of herbs and spices for its gravy. From just S$4 for a plate of individual portion of duck rice, to enjoying the braised duck with porridge or noodles, the tender braised duck meat and rich gravy makes a perfect combination here.
The friendly next-gen now fronts the stall, an exciting outlook for fans of Soon Kee if we can see the family continuing to run this stall.
Rants This is a busy coffee shop with many above average food stalls, so do expect crowds and some difficulty in grabbing some seats.
Will I Return Again? Have been returning over the past decade, and most definitely will be back again.
