Duck Asian Kitchen and Bar
newest 'in place', Straits Quay is located in Seri Tanjung Pinang
in Tanjung Tokong, just off the main road to Batu Ferringhi. Many
bars, coffee shops, restaurant and high-end shops have opened
here and the place is already a very in vogue nightspot.
of the most popular restaurants is the Cheeky Duck, an "Asian
Food" outlet located at the far western end of the ground
floor. Furnished with a variety of table configuration from intimate
tables for 2, to a long table for 12, and almost every size in
There is a small bar area at one side with low tables, but on
the Monday night we were there, this area was empty. The restaurant
area however was quite busy; by the time we left around 9pm more
the half the tables were occupied, predominantly with locals.
Considering the restaurant can seat over 100 inside, this was
a pretty good sign.
The menu is extensive, numbered Chinese style with over 100 dishes
listed. We started with one Hot and Sour Soup and one Beef Flank
Noodle Soup. The Hot and Sour Soup was quite good. The Beef Soup
filled a substantial bow and was tasty with tender beef chunks;
very filling, more a main dish than a starter. The one negative
was the several chunks of beef fat. However these undoubtedly
added to the flavour and don't have to be eaten.
For the main we had Shredded Pork with Garlic and Chilli, a portion
of the house speciality, Roast Duck and for veggies Pak Choy with
garlic. We shouldn't have been surprised that the duck was serves
cold, but not being connoisseurs of Chinese food we were disappointed
by this. The waiter explained that if served hot there is an oily
texture. A delightful plum sauce dip is served with the duck.
The pork dish was spicy, crunchy and tasty and a good portion.
The Bok Choy with garlic was also very good.
bill was RM114 including a coke and a small Carlsberg; not cheap!
Overall we enjoyed the place and the meal and will return with
some friends to explore some more of the menu.
