Ng Soon Kee Fish & Duck Porridge 黄順記魚糜・鴨糜 – a legend set to discontinue
Started at Geylang Lorong 27 till it’s present location at Geylang Baru Food Centre, it is a 38 years journey of fish soup and braised duck business. The stall is famous and popular and never short of media coverage, however, not even a single award was displayed at the stall.
I have a good chat with the friendly old couple running the stall.
“Uncle, why you don’t display those awards at your stall?” I asked him out of curiosity “Don’t need lah! Now already can’t cope with the business, all the awards are in my car.”
“I have interviewed by many newspapers and Magazines, I got 3 bowls and 3 pairs of chockstick from Makan….something” he must be referring to Makansutra.
It is full of pride in the conversation.
Truth enough, the shop open at 12noon but there were already close to 30 orders lining up way before the time. Seriously, he does not need another award.
Fish soup $5
Mackerel fish is used and you can bet on the freshness. The soup was a tangy of sweetness and sourness from the seasoning. The flavour simply savoury, it is an unpretentious bowl of wholeheartedly made soup.
Braised duck $3
This is a surprise to us, the braised duck was damn flavourful absorbed all the essence of the flavouring from the seasoning. The duck was tender and its tasted so much like the mum’s cooked meal at home. In fact, the braised duck gravy alone good enough to finish the bowl of rice. It is a hearty and homely braised duck not to be missed.
Our verdict, we are happy that the food is definitely fulfilling our fastidious taste buds. On the depress side, the old couple told us there is no successor to continue the legend. So, if you don’t want to miss out a great fish soup and braised duck, act fast and do enjoy every bits of the food. We have registered the good food here in our memory and hope you do too.
