While the focus has usually been delicious Braised Duck Rice in Singapore, I am one of those who is a secret fan of the lesser-known counterpart – Braised Duck Noodles.

Ah, those succulent slices of duck meat tossed with noodles (sometimes kway teow) with multi-layered savoury sauce.

Not much has been talked about Seah Im Food Centre which is right opposite Harbourfront next to the bus terminal, but it is popular for its affordable hawker food.

Shi Ji Noodle Stall 狮记面食摊 does NOT sell Duck Rice, but instead Prawn Noodles, Lor Mee, and yes Duck Noodles. Each bowl is priced at $3.50, $4, and $5. (Note: nearby Cai Ji also sells Duck Noodles.)

The stall with its faded photos may look unassuming at first glance, but its element is in the sauce.

The Duck Noodles ($3.50) available from 10am onwards, came piping hot, filled with generous portion of sliced duck meat – tender, not too gamey at all.

When I closed my eyes to savour, the noodles reminded me of a dry version of Mee Soto (I know this dish doesn’t exist) in a very strange way. Perhaps it was due to the particular similar ingredient used – am I the only feeling this way?

Note that this bowl is on the 重口味 side, meaning it was rather heavy and robust in flavours, while some customers may prefer something not so rich.

Accompanying soup was delightfully herbal and comforting.

Quite a hidden old-school gem at this part of the island. Most people come here for the Lor Mee though, and remember the Duck Noodles are only sold 10am onwards.
