Don't confuse this with edgy Bray restaurant, The Fat Duck, or the famed roast duck joint from London's Bayswater neighbourhood. London Fat Duck is a Singaporean partnership between takeaway chain owners Fei Siong and Japanese cuisine Akashi Group, specialising in roast ducks from Ireland. A Hong Kong chef import roasts and serves the meat here in whole ($48.80), half ($26) and regular ($12.80) portions, but solo diners can go for the more affordably priced servings yellow noodles ($7.80) and rice ($7.80). The rest of the menu carries on the Cantonese cuisine narrative, with dim sum like ashy-hued black pepper London duck buns ($4.80), congee ($2.50-$7.50) and roast meats topped on noodles ($6.80-$7.80) and rice ($7.80).

Last summer, my mum brought me to what soon became my favourite restaurant for roasted meats in Singapore, London Fat Duck. We both enjoy going out to eat and exploring new eateries and this came highly recommended by a good family friend. I really enjoyed it then and I still enjoy it now almost a year after first trying it. The standards were still as high as I remember - in terms of food and service!


Between the two of us, we've tried the following dishes: 


1. Barbeque Pork with Honey Sauce (Char Siew) - A typical form of roasted meat that you'll find at a Chinese restaurant, this did not disappoint. The pieces of meat were thickly-cut, had a good balance of meat to fat, and came topped with a deliciously sweet sauce. One order of this was perfect to share between my mum and I while still having space to try other dishes. 


2. Crispy London Snow Bun - This is one of their signature dishes and easily my favourite. It's much like the traditional Char Siew Bao that you can find at dim sum but instead of a steamed bun, this bun had a more bread-like consistency and a crispy, sweet top. It holds the barbecue duck filling well and contains a decent amount such that each bite has a little bit of everything. 


3. Steamed Cheong Fun - My mum and I have tried two versions of this dish, the one with barbecue pork and the one with prawn. Both are delicious because the quality of meat remains high! As for the rice noodle texture, it's stretched to a good thickness so that it has bite and can hold the filling while remaining thin enough to balance the filling. The sweet soy sauce that comes with it is also on point because they give you an appropriate amount on the plate - enough to soak the rice noodle wrapping without drenching it. 


4. Steamed Chicken Feet with Black Bean Sauce - Another must-have when you go for dim sum, the version here is executed well. It comes out freshly made and steaming, with a good amount of sauce and thinly sliced red chilies, and well sized chicken feet. It's flavourful and really hits the spot for me!


5. Century Egg Congee with Shredded Pork - Another classic and one you've got to order when you eat here! The congee is cooked so well. It's the perfect consistency - smooth in some areas but rice grains visible in others. As for the ingredients, they're generous with the shredded pork, which simple melts in your mouth and pulls apart easily. There's plenty of century egg to go around, which is good because my mum and I love it! It is served with a few slices of young ginger and spring onions on top, which really adds heat and crunch to the entire dish. Best eaten hot, it's the first thing I'll finish once it arrives at my table. 


6. London Roast Duck Noodle - We've also tried their noodles, which seems to be what most people order. I can see why because the noodles are cooked to the Asian version of al dente - they're chewy and have a good bounce to them. As for the roast duck, the meat is tender and a delight to eat!


Overall, I'd highly recommend having a meal here while you're in town. It's conveniently located at Scotts Square, which is a shopping mall adjacent to the famous shopping street, Orchard Road. It doesn't get very crowded on weekdays at lunch time, making it a quick and simple meal. The staff are very nice and the service is quick, as it mostly is for dim sum. I like that they're able to achieve this while making most dishes to order.
