Good Good Duck, Leong Hup & Long Kee Roast Duck Trucks

Get your ducks in a row, on the go: Here's one fowl move we can get behind - a food truck that dabbles in Cantonese roast duck & smoked duck, glistening irresistibly on the hooks, from 1pm to 7pm everyday on a Sri Petaling roadside, at RM26 for half a whole roast duck & RM31 for half of the smoked. The good news is, the folks behind Good Good Duck are no quacks.

Between this duo of ducks, our allegiance rests with the roast - terrifically fleshy, satisfyingly tender & sufficiently flavoursome. The smoked duck conveys a more distinctive, sweeter taste, but while it's equally juicy, it has a bit less meat to sink your teeth into, so the choice might be a toss-up based on personal preferences. Enjoy either, or both, with a bottle of Merlot.

Hunt them down along Jalan Merah Silu, Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.








Leong Hup & Long Kee are two roast duck trucks that operate barely 100 metres from each other on OUG's Jalan Awan Besar - the former claims a history that stretches back over three decades to 1982. Its duck is pricier at RM60 for a whole serving (versus RM53 at Long Kee). Leong Hup's duck has noticeable herbal nuances, while Long Kee's (offered in either original roast or crispy-roast) is more savoury, so it may be a toss-up based on preference. Personally, we'd probably pick Leong Hup.

Donkey & Crow Irish Pub @ TREC KL

Irish eyes are smiling at Donkey & Crow, a friendly pub where Dublin's delicacies take centre stage, with a supporting boost from other parts of the UK - expect braised lamb stew, corned beef & cabbage in Guinness, & bangers with champ & beans.

The kitchen-baked steak-&-kidney pie surfaces in a princely portion that two can share (RM45; ideal if you relish kidneys - some of us regard it as rank), while the Dublin coddle is a dish James Joyce might have loved, a casserole brimming with boiled coarse pork sausage meat, ham, potatoes & onions (RM38; pricey, considering it feels pretty home-made & basic, like Mom's comfort food for the sick soul, but if you're here Thursdays, the coddle & other stewed recipes are discounted by half). Enjoy while an eclectic mishmash of 1980s-90s music videos from WIlson Phillips & Culture Club plays on the monitors.

Almaz by Momo @ Mall of the Emirates, Dubai

This intensely atmospheric establishment transports customers to another world beyond its confines in one of Dubai's gargantuan malls; Almaz tackles North African cuisine - delicious dishes like pan-fried chicken liver with pomegranate sauce (order it!), pigeon pastilla flavoured with almonds & cinnamon (order it too!) & couscous with a mixed meat platter of roasted lamb shoulder, charcoal chicken & merguez sausage, plus semolina & vegetable broth (order everything!). Alas, alcohol is verboten, so customers must make do with mocktails that blend, say, pomegranates with lychee, raspberries & rose water.
