Succulent duck dinner at the new Kai Duck Cantonese Restaurant @ Ngee Ann City.
Do you love Cantonese cuisine? Dim sum, roast meats, soups, and all that?
I do. Of course I do, I’m Cantonese, after all. I also happen to enjoy the earthly taste of duck, canard dishes being one of my must-orders whenever I visit any French brasserie.
And so when my family passed by the new Kai Duck Restaurant at Ngee Ann City last Sunday, I insisted on having dinner there. The overall dining experience? I absolutely adored the Hong Kong tea house inspired décor. The food, especially the roasted duck that we ordered, was also nothing short of fabulous. It more than made up for the earnest but slightly slow service, which was probably the result of opening weekend confusions.
Kai Duck Restaurant Décor
As you can see, there a strong Hong Kong tea house flavour to the décor. Add in dim sum carts and you’d believe you’re in the Fragrant Harbour.
Menu and Food
About the Roasted Duck, this was truly done to perfection. It looks a little fatty in my picture, but the crispy skin, the fat, and the meat come apart with the slightest effort. The meat itself is also tender, juicy, and splendidly flavourful.

Popped by the restaurant again before watching Sonic the Hedgehog. 🙂
