Ever since I had the braised duck rice with added pig's skin from Cai Ji Boneless Duck Rice at Seah Im Food Centre, I have been unable to put it out of my mind.

Thus, when I saw a braised duck stall at the basement of Golden Mile Food Centre, I quickly went to queue for a plate. 

As its name implies, the stall, called Ah Xiao Teochew Braised Duck (亞笑潮洲卤鸭) serves braised duck with either rice or kway chap. They have the usual sides of duck gizzards, Teochew fish cake and braised egg. They also have a small selection of pork belly and pig's skin.

I decided to order a plate of braised duck rice ($3) with additional pig's skin (50¢).

They have this big pot of braising sauce on the counter which they drizzled over my plate of rice. The sauce is the thinner type not thickened with starch.

Also, they have two different tubs of chili sauce which I believed is for the rice and kway chap respectively.

They are rather generous with the deboned duck meat. What makes me even happier is that all the duck skin are accounted for!

The succulent duck meat goes pretty well with the vinegar-ish chili as the tang from the vinegar helps to open up my appetite. One thing I noticed is that they have admirable chopping skills as the meat are all uniform in thickness.

I find the rice quite enjoyable too as it is flavored by the savory sauce with a mild fragrance of spices.

As for the pig's skin, the flavors have thoroughly penetrated within and I am in love with that soft, chewy texture. Very addictive indeed.

One of the founder's son is helping out here while another son is helming the other stall at Blk 29 Bendemeer Food Centre. It is heartening to see the second generation continuing their father's legacy.

This is definitely good news for us customers as we get to savor delicious Teochew braised duck. Hey, they even got the nod of approval from Hong Kong food critic Chua Lam (蔡瀾)!
