Who Ate the Emperor's Duck?

Yesterday was the first day of Hari Raya Aidil Fitri and we decided to pay a visit to our muslim auntie on the other side of Sarawak River. We were lost at the first attempt, and we were trapped in a traffic jam when we were on the right route. It was way past lunch time and we decided to turn around and head back to the city to look for food.

I have heard heaps of good comments about the dim sum at Imperial Duck, so I decided to bring my parents there for our Hari Raya lunch, since we missed the curry for the Hari Raya visit.

When we were at a place named after the duck, how could we leave without tasting the duck? So, the Imperial Duck Roasted Duck (港式明炉烧鸭) came on our table. The roasted duck was juicy and full of fragrance, one of the best in town!

I have also heard that the Cha Seow (蜜汁叉烧) here is nice, so I tried. It was a disappointment as the meat was a bit tougher than a good cha seow should be.

For the dim sum part, the Har Kao (水晶虾饺王) was nice. The fragrance of the shrimps were well retained inside the thin and soft skin.

The Steamed Crab Meat Dumpling (蟹皇蒸烧卖) was a tad too salty to our taste, but still acceptable. The meat was quite soft and chewy.

When it comes to the Shanghai Style Pan Fried Dumpling (上海生煎包), it has to be the best in Kuching. Although not up to the authentic quality of the one I had in Shanghai, I would consider that as almost 80% there.

For the oven-baked items, the Baked Pineapple Bun with Cha Seow (叉烧菠萝餐包) and the Baked Cha-Seow Puff (蜜汁叉烧酥) were very nice. These two items are highly recommended. For your information, pineapple bun doesn't have pineapple in it. The name was derived from the outlook.

The Yam Puff (五香炸芋角) wasn't that appetising due to the oily smell and it was cold too. I think they should use fresher oil for their deep-fried items.

The total damage was RM70.10 for three of us with three glasses of Kedondong Juice (人面果汁) to wash down all the food, plus a takeaway of an order of Shanghai Style Pan Fried Dumpling (上海生煎包). Overall, it was a satisfying meal.
