Oriental Stall

#01-19 Maxwell Food Centre

Opening Hours: Mon - Sun: 11am-5pm

Oriental Stall (2).jpg“Serving healthier duck since 1950” proclaimed Oriental Stall, whilst a headline from Shin Min Daily News stated “Non fatty braised duck.” Great news for health-conscious duck lovers, I guess. But there’s much more than just duck; the stall also specialises in braised pork - there’s also kway chap and bak kut teh. Random tidbit: they were once visited by former NBA player Dennis Rodman (there’s a picture on their Facebook page).

Oriental Stall (3).jpgKway chap is a Teochew dish that usually includes pork and assorted pig offal but since this was a duck stall, I thought they might do it Penang-style with duck meat and duck offal instead. Nope, classic pork. For a duck stall, they do braised pork quite well.

Oriental Stall (5).jpgThe pork belly had been cooked into submission. It was tender, fatty and delicious, basically dongpo pork. Even the lean parts were so soft.

Oriental Stall (1).jpgThe pig’s intestines were a little chewy, but relatively clean-tasting with just a touch of funk. The tofu was good and the tau pok was absolutely saturated in the braising liquid and bursting with flavour. The rice noodles were silky but substantial, and I really liked that the broth was light and more herbal than salty, so it didn’t detract from the main ingredient. It’s just missing a bit of cilantro for a bit of green sharpness.
