The Duck King restaurant (PIM 2)

The Duck King restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants. It's a group restaurant and has a total of 8 restaurants in Jakarta, Bandung and Surabaya. This group of restaurant is specializing in authentic Chinese cuisine with the influence of Southeast Asian taste, therefor the food is halal (no pork).

Last year, I even celebrated my birthday at the Grand Duck King restaurant which located in Grand Indonesia Mall in Central Jakarta.

Last week, my friend who is living in Singapore; came to visit and we had a very nice lunch at one of the Duck King restaurants that is located at Pondok Indah Mall 2 in South Jakarta.

Our lunch started with dim sum as appetizer.

Fried prawns wanton with mayonnaise - Rp. 15.800.
Nice crunchy with tasty filling.

Steamed Hakau - Rp. 16.800

The filling of prawns was so juicy and flavorful.

Steamed Siew Mai - Rp. 15.800
Wonderful meaty!

Steamed chicken feet with black pepper - Rp. 14.800

It's spicy and a bit chewy.... yummy!

Then the main course followed the dim sum.

A plate of dry Hong Kong Noodle with wanton - Rp. 32.000
Frankly speaking, I hardly eat dry version noodles. After a few bites, I found out that I like the springy texture. Next time, definitely, I will order it again :)

Eating at The Duck King restaurant wouldn't be complete without a plate of roasted duck. Love the roasted duck! The crispy skin and juicy tender meat of the duck was just heavenly.

Braised Tou Miaw with dried scallop and oyster sauce - Rp. 58.000
A good way of cooking the tou miaw vegetable, as the gravy enriched the taste.

So many delicious food for just 2 hungry stomachs which was so fulfilling and we almost couldn't finish it. Still, we didn't forget to order the dessert :) My friend and I shared together a little bowl of longan fruit with almond tofu sago "Mei Lo" - Rp. 25.000

  1. Here we also have Duck King. No wonder people are telling me that the Duck King is from Indonesia. But not sure if it's the same. lol

  2. Mmm, everything looks delicious! (Though I'm not a big fan of chicken feet. The texture freaks me out.)

  3. FP: Is the logo the same? ;)

    mica: hahahaha... this is the only way of chicken feet that I can eat, the rest like chicken feet in soup also freak me out :D

  4. Everything looks yummy. Chicken feet used to freak me out as well but now the only feet I eat are those served in dim sum restaurants.

  5. there is one duck king in PJ area, Msia. heard that it's very expensive!!!

  6. ai wei: Actually, the prices in the Duck King's Jakarta can also be considered as very expensive too :)

  7. That looks so wonderful! I love chicken feet. I could eat two servings all by myself! :-)

  8. This is a really delicious spread of food! Everything looks incredible, especially the duck!

  9. mmmmmmm. those hong kong noodles look so good!

  10. It all looks so good! I've never had chicken feet. I'll have to try and find a restaurant that serves them. Have a great day!

  11. I love dim sum, and the duck looks amazing!

  12. I also love the Duck King. I think that I only visited this restaurant once. I was mostly frequenting Sushi Tei when I was in Jakarta a few years ago. Should visit the Duck King more often when I am in Jakarta again...!

  13. Most of the food (menu in Bahasa Indonesia, too)served in Duck King, Malaysia are similar to Indonesia but the logo are different-maybe of franchising problems-anyway, the food looks delicious.

  14. the duck really looks good...and so the the dessert...made me yearn for duck for lunch LOL!

  15. hrmm..i wonder is it the same as duck king in malaysia..:)

  16. palidor: can you eat chicken feet in the soup? ;)

    faith: it is indeed :)

    heather: yes, I definitely will have it again :)

    mary: Give it a try, Mary :) It's very healthy too! Have a nice day!

  17. Looks delicious! just amazing that we are family the same food here and at your place too! :)

  18. Duck King restaurant that is not only selling duck cuisine, hehe...

  19. the sauce that drenches the vege looks interesting..certainly makes eatin vege easier haha..

  20. FLaB: Dim sum is wonderful, ya? ;)

    C-G: my recommendation if you like roasted duck, try the Grand Duck King, coz' so far, it's the best among all the Duck King! :D

    foodbin: Oh.. the Duck King's menu in Malaysia is in bahasa Indonesia? Interesting!

    m-m: hehehe... ah.. I want to eat roasted duck too!

    taufulou: psssttt.. I wonder it too ;)

  21. BBO: Hehehe.. yup! :D

    LI: true... so many varieties :)

    joe: Hahaha.. you are so right! ;)

  22. The branch here in Kl almost always has a queue but doubt it serves dimsum. And very non-halal since they serve lard rice which I heart.

  23. what do you call duck in Indomesia, bebe??
    i love duck but worry about my cholestrol level.. hope to try the duck in Jakarta one day.

  24. tummythoz: It's pretty crowded to the duck king restaurants here in Jakarta :) Whoaa.. so nice to have non-halal!

    STL: duck is bebek :) Oh.. duck is high cholesterol?

  25. DA: hehehe.. it was a delicious lunch ;)

  26. got to love dimsum!
    if only im where you are for a holiday right now, would totally give that place a shot. heh.

  27. Gads, I must be hungry....even the chicken feet look delicious to me.

  28. The wontons with prawns sound wonderful and I would definitely love the duck, always my favorite. Sounds like a great place!

  29. What a feast for the senses ~ All the dishes look very appetizing and I bet they tasted delicious! Sounds like a very good choice of restaurant.

  30. The DucKing is PJ, Malaysia is a branch from Jakarta. But the one in Msia is not halal though..

  31. The duck looks fantastic! Always a favorite of mine. The wontons would be my 2nd favorite.

  32. yummy. the dim sum and roasted duck looks delish!

  33. if i visit Indonesia, i must go try duck king. it's very famous there, isn't it? must check it out! :)

  34. muffins: hopefully someday you can come and try it ;)

Sometimes; most times it just kicks me off your blog:( Glad I got in today:)
