Kam Heong Duck – PJ Old Town – nite only

Come night time, this particular coffee shop which is famous for it’s Penang Hokkien Mee and Wan Tan Mee in the mornings is taken over by ONE stall – the Kam Heong Braised Duck. Do not expect roast ducks here, for they only sell the braised version with it’s carbo companions rice or porridge, & both best eaten with generous spoonfuls of flavoursome duck broth mixed in.

Open from 5pm onwards, this place fills up easily, and the crowd spills over to the side, front and it’s neighbouring shop’s walkway.

Duck - Kam Heong PJ1

While duck meat are generally expensive, our meal for 2 cost us only RM8!

We had a serving of tender, slightly gamey but tasty duck meat, with a plate of aromatic rice, which I liked since it was not too oily or clumpy plus the porridge which was,.. well..porridge (I’m not a fan 😉 ).
I despise salted vegetables but I loved Kam Heong’s. It didn’t taste like salted vegetables at all! (which explains my zest 😀  ). Plus point was the bits of lard mixed in. The gizzards & liver has soaked in the flavours imparted by the duck broth.  Even the chilli was worthy of mention, none of the sissified mix but with a bit of spicy kick.
All in all, it’s the perfect accompaniment to the rice & duck.

I wish we had stomach space for this, the instestines. It looked really good! All of the innards were bathed in hot duck broth prior to serving. Seriously, the gravy is the bomb. Feel free to pour copious amount of it over your rice or porridge. It has the the perfect blend of spices that lends to its aroma and taste.

The braised mushrooms was another popular choice on the tables.

mushroom, etc

Huge numbers of pots of rice and porridges were sold each night.

the carbs

Not to mention the number of ducks. These fellows were stationed there the whole evening and I only see them chopping ducks. They did not even look up, much less take orders or even prepare the side dishes for serving. Only chop chop chop chop chop…

Kam Heong is seriously a good option for dinner. Service, though efficient, can still be erratic. Be prepared to wait a while since business is brisk.

    ahh, an outlet that’s open at night instead of during the daytime! my kind of place, yay! though i guess there’s a risk that all the duck might be finished if i arrive there at 9pm, huh?
    errmm, this is probably a silly question, but that isn’t duck liver, is it? 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      Actually I nd to ask UnkaLeong abt the duck liver part..I’m sure the other was gizzard tho 😉
      And at 9pm? I think it should be a problem. Or at least for w-days nite

      1. rebeccasaw

        Yup! Unka said it’s liver, gizzards!

      2. Sean

      3. rebeccasaw

    Duck is a difficult conundrum for me – once I start I can’t stop but I’ve been told to avoid it to keep the bad cholesterol in check.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Duck, cholesterol? Oh..I nvr bothered abt cholesterol but I did read yr last post on staying awy frm meat. I really hope th doesnt have to come to that :unsure:

        Anyways, tis is one place u can go try out! Not too fattening.. 😛

  5. TummyRumble

    the duck sauce is laden with tons of MSG.. Taste quite artificial. Doesn’t taste as good as last time. As if there’s some chemical in it. I have no idea why. I used to really like this place..

    1. rebeccasaw

      Serious? I went like 3 mths ago! Haha..not sure if it was that bad then?

    duck is one of my favorite. The picture of duck slices look savory. Now in the middle of the nite how to satisfy my hunger ah?

    1. rebeccasaw

      Aiyo..in Pg sure got plcs la!
      I’m craving koay chiap in Air Itam market now..

  8. I feel like tapau-ing some of those braised mushrooms (and duck meat too, of course) and taking them home to have with some pasta and loads of olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.

    Too gross/fusion, maybe? But sounds good to me… 😉

    1. rebeccasaw

      No! Not gross at all!
      I luve duck pasta! but havent found an outlet that does it well u knw.
      Delicious’s not good (for me at least) and Kissaten’s too salty (cos they used dried version). Yogitree’s was so-so..
