At Zuo Ji Duck Rice, you will be greeted by a line of newspaper cuttings and photos hanging on the front of the stall, showing off their signature braised duck rice.

While in the queue, I noticed many people ordering the porridge so I got both a portion of duck rice ($4) and porridge ($3.50). You can also take away a whole duck for $40, or half a duck for $20.

The duck porridge was delicious, with a thick, creamy congee with shredded duck slices and braised sauce. The thinly sliced duck is tender, and the thick gravy mixes well with the congee, which is already tasty in itself.

I easily slurped down the whole bowl, and it somehow made me crave for more. My only feedback would be that it could do with a bigger portion and more duck!

Instead of yam rice, Zuo Ji opted for their own inhouse gravy sauce rice for their braised duck rice. The same thinly sliced duck has a layer of chewy fatty skin, but the rice was a bit on the dry side. Despite the dark colour, the gravy taste was on the mild side, and I felt that it could do with a bit more flavour and sauce.

Mix in the sambal chilli for a kick of spice that really opens up the flavours of the duck. The rice also came with a bowl of soup that didn’t do much for the dish.
