Melbourne Peking Duck @ Bangsar

My friend found us a new place to dine. Since he's been trying almost every outlet in Bangsar, he has spotted this place when dining opposite this row of shop houses a few weeks ago. Now that it's finally opened, we scheduled a lunch together at Melbourne Peking Duck. From what I understand, the chef is from Melbourne and is specialised in preparing succulent Peking Ducks.

The Peking Duck on that day didn't turn out to be the best and it was very courteous of the lady to apologize to us while serving the duck telling us that there was some problem with the roasting machine and thus the duck didn't appear to be very crispy.

Nevertheless, we enjoyed the duck. It wasn't as crispy as what we would expect it to be but the duck was robust with taste and tantalising.

The "pancake" skin is thin and pairs very well with the duck.

Here's the video on how to wrap the duck the proper way!

The restaurant offers 2 set menus of Peking Duck. The 1st one is a menu that costs RM78 which serves four comfortably and it comes with....

1 Peking Duck with 16 slices served with Pancakes, scallions and cucumber.

A plate of Stir-Fried Bean Sprouts with Duck Meat

Duck Soup with Salted Vegetable and Tofu

We tasted the two set menus. Eventhough there were just 5 of us, we were really into the "duck" feasting mood. The 2nd Menu is priced at RM88 and it comes with...

1 Peking Duck with 16 slices served with Pancakes, scallions and cucumber.

A choice of either Fried Mee Hoon, Hor Fun or Rice with Shredded Duck Meat
Duck Soup with Salted Vegetable and Tofu

Besides the Peking Duck set menu, the restaurant also offer a variety of dishes from meat to vege and tofu. We wanted to try some of the ala carte dishes and we ordered another 2 to try. You can imagine how stuffed we are after lunch!

Deep Fried Tofu with Minced Pork (RM16) and Aromatic Crispy Pork Belly (RM18). Both of these dishes are nice but I find that the tofu is a little greasy. The crispy pork belly is really good and I wished there was a bowl of porridge for me to eat it with! Yums.

Since this is a very new restaurant, expect it to have a few glitches. I will definitely come back for another meal. This place is very easy to find. Located at 1st floor of the shophouses opposite Bangsar Village 2 which is just beside PappaRich.

I've never seen this place before but I go to Telawi quite frequently. I must have been blind not to look up.

Thanks for the heads up. :)

I like Peking duck too and RM 88 for 4 pax is very reasonable. Nice, new option for dining in Telawi. :)

Your watermark on the 1st pic made me look twice...maybe thrice. I thought that the place was renamed as

the duck looks decent from the pics. will pop by soon when I know the hubster is clean and can eat without triggering his gout symtoms.
