An institution on Petaling Street - it is hard to miss this famous roast duck stall known fondly as Sze Ngan Chye. Literally meaning 4 eyed guy in Chinese, this was the nickname of the stall owner.
Most of the time you find his daughter running the show but we were lucky to see him one Saturday morning. He is still as deft chopping the roast ducks away even though he is sporting a hearing aid.
This stall is said to have started in the 1950s long before I was born and they use charcoal to bake their salted roast duck. Placed in a mobile stainless steel stall, the ducks are kept in shelves totally unlike other places which hang their ducks out with skewers.
We didn't try the salted roast duck but went for the unusual duck feet roll or ngap kiok pau (RM1.50 per piece). Although you get versions of this at those mobile lok lok stalls, none of those places make it with duck feet. This unique roll consists of duck liver wrapped around the duck feet with a piece of the duck's intestine. A lot of work goes into cleaning the intestine to make sure it does not smell. Once wrapped, it is marinated in this sweetish sauce and hung to dry. Simply yummy stuff.
