Beijing is famous for its sliced Peking Duck, and it is about time that Singapore promotes more of the flavourful Herbal Roast Duck, found at Dian Xiao Er. Actually, I do not know of anywhere here which makes these herbals ducks better than them.

I am a more of a chicken than a duck person. But when I have duck cravings, I know l can make my way to Marina Square which is one of its original branch. Or NEX which has a fascinating ang-pao red colour and décor, red ribbon lanterns and a red OTT wedding wall. No kidding –it’s quite interesting and you feel transported back to the period drama times of China.

Dian Xiao Er’s signature dish is the Ten Wonder Herbs Roast Duck ($13.60 for small, $25.30 for medium), where the herbs is said to revitalize energy and relief mental stress. I am not sure if it is indeed the herbs or duck, but I do feel happier after savouring a slice of its meat – tender and somewhat sweetish juicy. You know how duck meat at lousier stalls can be dry and tough, this is the opposite.

I much preferred its less known Angelica Herb Roast Duck ($12.90 for small, $24.30 for medium), where the flavours are stronger and less herbal. If you never never never ever had Dian Xiao Er’s duck before, you never know what you are missing out.

Imagine your usual favourite roast duck but with more juice that is sealed within the duck, said to be marinated overnight to allow the sauces to fully permeate within.

If you want something lighter to balance the taste, I would recommend the Wheatgrass Tofu ($12.60) which is slightly jade green as it is infused with wheatgrass extract. Fried with fresh prawns and scallops, the beancurd is soft and sauce quite healthy-tasting.

Heard of Gangnam style prawns? This is not exactly Korean, but a tongue-in-chic way to name Dian Xiao Er’s Jiangnan Baked Fresh Prawn ($21.90 for small, $43.60 for large). The taste somewhat reminds of the aromatic butter crabs I had in Malaysia, and rest assured that the prawns are HUGE.

Dian Xiao Er also offers Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner Takeaway Reservation. If you prefer dining in the comfort of your home, get their takeaway packages which can include their signature Herbal Roasted Duck and Prosperity Yu Sheng.
