TungLok Peking Duck review

Zhuang Jia Wen

Peking duck is on the bucket list of any foodie visiting Singapore. For over 20 years, TungLok Peking Duck has perfected this regal dish using time-honoured techniques passed down through generations.

With outlets at The Grandstand and Orchard Central, they’ve made this Imperial cuisine accessible in a polished setting.

Traditional Preparation

What makes their Peking duck shine is sticking to traditional roasting methods. Each duck is seasoned, inflated by hand, and roasted in custom ovens using Chinese wood. This results in crispy skin and tender meat infused with smoky aromas. The duck carving in front of you adds to the anticipation!

The Meal Experience

The restaurant ambience is refined yet welcoming. Begin with appetisers like wok-fried radish cake and house specialties such as shredded chicken in vinegary chilli sauce.

Then comes the main event. The Peking duck is served in three courses:

  • Light pancakes and condiments to make duck wraps
  • Soup with duck meat and veggies
  • Fried rice with remaining duck slices

It’s a marvel how every part of the duck is utilised. The thin yet fluffy pancakes balance beautifully with the meat, cucumber and savoury sauce.

Worth the Splurge

At S$78++ for a whole duck, this is a special occasion meal. However, the impeccable service, traditional preparation and indulgent courses make it worthwhile for a memorable Chinese dining experience. Don’t pass up the chance to try authentic Peking duck done to perfection.
