It’s been quite sometime since I visited Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant in ParkRoyal Hotel Kuala Lumpur. My recent visit saw me witnessing the Tea Connoisseur who presents the humble act of tea art where he holds a metre-long nose bronze tea kettle, combines with the skills of Chinese martial arts, dance and gymnastics to perform elegant tea-pouring moves.
Totally in awed!! And the tea that I had was the restaurant’s signature Eight Treasure Tea.
Now back to the coming promotion – Beijing Roasted Duck. I’ve not been to Beijing before and I love roasted duck. Offer me anytime, I will not say no :p
While waiting, we nimble on some appetisers before the star of the night made it’s appearance!
Roasted to perfection, the duck skin, bones and meat will be prepared into a variety of dishes of your choice. You have seven to choose from!
The Chef delicately carved in front of us the crispy duck skin which will be used to prepare the Duck Skin wrapped with Seaweed and Julienne Legumes. Includes in the wrap are cucumber, spring onions and sweet sauce.
My favourite, I had 2 rolls of this that night
The duck bones can be used to prepare Duck Bones with Salted Vegetable and Bean Curd Soup. A popular local dish that one can have while waiting for main course to be served.
Now onto the mains where you can have seven varieties to choose from.
Wok-fried Duck with Sichuan Spicy Chilli. A class dish found in Si Chuan Dou Hua which usually uses chicken, this time it’s served using duck meat. Be aware though that while this dish is addictive, it is also a numbing dish where your tongue will be numb by the Sichuan chillies. I’ll bet it will be your memorable dish if it is your first time trying this.
Another alternative is to have the Stir-fried Duck with Fragrant Black Pepper Sauce. Surprisingly the cut of the duck meat is thick thus I enjoyed this dish very much while the meat soaks up the black pepper. I must say tho that as much as I like black pepper, it covers the duck fragrant.
If all those spicy numbing action is not your call, go for the Stir-fried Duck with Young Ginger and Spring Onions. It’s good if you’re dining with kids. Fragrant yet non-spicy.
Aahh this is one dish that you must try, I kid you not! Duck lovers and Mango lovers, you’ll be asking for more! Sliced Duck Meat with Mango and Spicy Sauce. This is a very unique combination where flavours bombed and played around in your mouth.
The duck meat can also be prepared with 3 varieties of noodles.
The Crispy Duck Noodles comes with duck slices and sauce poured onto the noodles. The broth soaks up the fragrant of the duck meat beautifully and I enjoyed this noodle.
Something different is the Duck Dan Dan Noodles. Striped of duck meat are served together with some broth. I found the broth a bit bland in this.
One last option is the Longevity Duck Noodles. It is actually wantan noodles topped with sauteed duck slices.
Verdict : My preference still goes to the Crispy Duck Noodles
