Wei Kee: Imbi to Subang & Yummy Duck @ Kuchai Lama

It's the end of the road for Wei Kee in Imbi; the respected specialist in duck & goose meat is closing this branch & heading to Subang Jaya at the end of September because of tenancy troubles. 

We bade a fond farewell to Wei Kee's Imbi outpost with a full order of its whole roast duck (RM52) - not as memorable as the juiciest, meatiest & most flavourful ones out there, but customers in Subang can still give this a shot soon. The restaurant has recently faced problems securing a consistent supply of imported goose, so that wasn't available for our visit.

 Wei Kee's other offerings made for a pleasant-enough meal - from vinegar pork (RM16), steamed tilapia (RM30) & egg (RM8) ...

 ... to mustard greens & other assorted veggies (mostly between RM10-RM12). Note: Wei Kee's Pudu outlet on Lorong Yap Hin will continue operating; only the Imbi branch is relocating.

 As this forlorn poster states, Wei Kee will commence business on Oct. 1 at 25, Jalan USJ 9/5N, Subang Business Centre.

Hungry for another fowl feast, we moved on to Yummy Duck, one of Kuchai Lama's seemingly countless Chinese eateries.

The selection is enjoyably extensive & well-prepared, with classics sharing the spotlight with contemporary concoctions. Highlights include smoked duck with black pepper (RM17), spring rolls stuffed with duck & lovely braised goose feet (RM15).

Traditional roast chicken (RM25 for half) or a version of wings stuffed with glutinous rice (RM13)? We like the latter.

Pork's all present: Siu yok (RM22) & char siu (RM19) to spare ribs in Mongolian gravy or honey BBQ sauce (RM19 each).

Yummy Duck takes pride as well in its noodles, which taste pretty good & turn out to be nicely textured too.

  1. Used to frequent Wee Kee Imbi quite a lot during the the sinful gravy tat comes with their roast duck...hopefully they'll do well in Subang Jaya =)

    Will revisit Yummy Duck for their chicken wings stuffed with glutinous rice...tats quite unique =)

    1. Ulric: interesting choice for them, to pick subang of all the different neighbourhoods. then again, i guess there's space in the market for more roast duck restaurants in subang :) the rice-stuffed wings are quite reasonably priced too for that portion :)

  2. Duck and roast chicken? Mmmm., when is supper? LOL! :)

    1. Linda: heheh, supper sounds a good idea right about now! :)

  3.!!! And vinegar pork!!!! You're killing me, Sean! All my favourites. I'd love the siu yok and the BBQ ribs too...but no! No goose feet for me, thank you. Hehehehehehe!!!!

    1. Suituapui: heheh, duck is one of my weaknesses too ... as is siu yuk ... strangely enough, i like goose feet. it's luscious, heheh! :D

  4. That's quite a ducky crawl. Love the mustard green at Wei Kee. A must order every time.

    Way Modern Chinois's truffle duck is a must too!

    1. Missyblurkit: heheh, i can't get enough of duck. but i think my friends finished most of the mustard greens :) i've never quite managed to try the truffle duck at way yet! :D
