I will be upfront with you. 

Yu Kee was not on my list of to-eats at Adam Road Food Centre. It is more of an accidental find because I am really there to try Noo Cheng Big Prawn Noodle.

For some reason, the lights at Noo Cheng were not lit. I then turned to another stall, Cheng Ji for its pork leg bee hoon but, the stall is not ready as well.

Am I too early at 10-ish in the morning? It is way pass their stipulated opening hours though.

While looking around for alternatives, my gaze fell upon the row of glistening braised ducks hanging inside Yu Kee. From the menu, the stall serves the usual roasts such as char siew, roasted pork, roasted chicken, roasted duck and braised duck with either rice or noodle. 

I find it quite unusual for a stall to offer both roasted and braised ducks. It is either one or the other. I have yet to come across a stall that offers both - until now.

If the stall's name is of any indication, the braised duck here is their specialty hence I ordered their braised duck noodle.

I did not specify the bowl size (regular $3.50, large $4.50) I wanted. I added an extra tau kwa and the cost add up to $5.

I am impressed by the generous portion of the deboned duck meat which tasted rather pleasant without any gamey ordor. The smooth and tender texture adds on the enjoyment as well.

The noodle is softer than al dente but still likeable in the sauce which has a mild herbal fragrance.

The only downside is that the soup tastes watered-down. It is too peppery and bland which reminded me of the bak kut teh I cooked at home using those pre-packed mix from the supermarket.

I do like the braised duck here for its moist and supple texture. Even their chili is quite good. They just need to work on their soup to give it a more robust flavor and all will be good.

Oh, and hold back on the pepper.
