Ipoh Food Trip: Tuck Kee Roast Duck + Yong Liew


Scenery of the Titiwangsa mountain range while on the way back to Ipoh. Had to visit my grandma in the hospital.


Lunch at Tuck Kee restaurant @Pasir Pinji once we arrived in Ipoh. Despite the late hour (about 2pm) there was still a long line queuing up outside for their famous roast chicken/pork and duck rice. The inside of the restaurant is air-conditioned. We ordered roasties for two, including roast duck, charsiew (sweet-basted roast pork) and pork sausage.

The duck was really tasty! Now I know why they’re famous for it. The balance of fat and lean meat was just right, it didn’t have a strong odour and wasn’t too salty. I love the caramelised skin with the layer of fat underneath which melts in my mouth.


House specialty tofu, which came in a brown broth and topped over with mushrooms. The portion was really big. The tofu was mixed with egg before deep frying and topped over with the sauce.

Breakfast the next morning. One cannot simply leave Ipoh without having a few deep fried yong liu (assorted fried goodies) with noodles tossed in soysauce and crunchy Ipoh beansprouts.
