It's no longer uncommon to see the younger generation running hawker stalls (yay!), and Kim Kitchen Braised Duck at Beo Crescent Market is one of them. The owner, Zhuo Yang, is only in his early twenties!

The menu features dishes like duck rice, porridge, noodles and kway chap, and they draw a steady crowd of customers.

Thankfully, I managed to avoid the lunchtime queue. I ordered the $3.50 duck rice set, which aside from duck meat, comes with tau kwa and half a braised egg.

Portion-wise, it seemed pretty generous, though I did notice that the duck slices were quite thin.

I also realised that instead of serving the typical yam rice, their version has white rice instead, with lashings of gravy.

Taking a spoonful of the rice, I found that the braised sauce resembled and tasted more like dark soy sauce. Sadly, I wasn't a fan of that, and would have preferred a richer flavour.

Apart from being sliced extremely thin, I thought the duck looked a tad dry but I was glad to find out it wasn't. I would have liked some of that gravy glazed over the duck though.

Unfortunately, the chilli didn't add much to the experience for me; it was mildly spicy with a hint of taginess, and I overall did not really enjoy it that much. The tau kwa and egg though, were decently what I liked most about the meal.

The soup is quite a key accompaniment to duck rice for me, so I was a bit disappointed when I took a sip; while it was full of herbal flavour, I thought it lacked a richness to it. And as someone who doesn't mind bitter stuff, this was a bit too much for me, and had an oddly slightly sour taste. 

I've seen many positive reviews on their food, so perhaps their duck rice was just not up my alley or that they were having a not-so-good day. Don't let me deter you from giving their food a try though!
