Hua Fong Kee Roasted Duck – Old-School Duck at Toa Payoh

Hua Fong Kee Roasted Duck is a reliable place for duck rice when we are in the Toa Payoh area. Not a terribly well-known roast duck place in Singapore, but familiar enough for local residents in the area to recommend it when we asked them for a nice duck rice to eat at Toa Payoh.

Hua Fong Kee Roasted Duck Menu

According to their Facebook page, HFK has been selling Cantonese roast meats since 1988. So there are no surprises on the menu. Roast duck, chicken and pork (both char siew and roast pork) are available with noodles or rice. Dumplings and soup are available as side dishes. There was a constant flow of customers, but no significant queue, at the time of our weekday visit during an off-peak hour. I understand lunchtime is peak hour when the queue can be about 20 minutes.

A whole roast duck or chicken costs $48 and $32 respectively. Of course smaller portions are available as well. A basic wanton noodle costs $4. In this day and age of high inflation, we thought that the prices seem reasonable. Especially when we had a recent experience of a $9 char kway teow.

Our Mixed Duck, Chicken, Pork Noodle Lunch

For our Hua Fong Kee Roasted Duck lunch we ordered a mixed selection of roast duck, chicken and pork to be eaten with noodles. Preserved vegetables and duck (‘kiam chye ark‘) soup was available and we also tried some of that.

The soup was quite bland and was the weakest dish. Both the chicken and pork were fine but not memorable. What will bring us back again is the duck – which was very well prepared. The meat was soft yet with adequate texture. Some ducks can have too strong flavours, but this had just an adequate amount of gamey taste.

The noodle also deserves mention. Nicely cooked but retaining a “Q” texture. It does not compare with the best of Hong Kong noodles but it is better than the average Singapore hawker dry noodle variety. For a next visit we shall stick to the basic combination of duck and noodles instead of aiming for variety. Sometimes variety is not necessarily the spice of life!
