Melbourne Peking Duck @ Bangsar Baru

If you're an avid fan of the famous Peking Duck and the way this chinese cuisine is being presented, do take note a new eatery is in town. Located in Bangsar Baru, just opposite Alexis to be exact, Melbourne Peking Duck is this newly opened chinese restaurant serving some really nice Peking Duck. The duck isn't from Melbourne, but the name came from the fact the chef was brought back from Melbourne to whip up all the delicious dishes.

Upon entering Melbourne Peking Duck restaurant on the 1st floor, I was told the decor was in the midst of being setup, but it was okay with me, as I was more interested in the chinese cuisine that they have to offer. It was rather intriguing to find out the chef hails from Malaysia but had been residing in Australia for more than 10 years before coming back here.

While waiting for the rest of the table to fill up, we had a short chat with Melbourne Peking Duck's owner, and found out the restaurant was really new to the neighborhood, opening just a week prior to our visit. Yet, there were already a steady stream of diners coming in with their families to dine there. We kicked off the night with their famous Peking Duck dish.

Now the Peking Duck served here was slightly different from the ones I had previously at other eateries. Here at Melbourne Peking Duck, it wasn't just about the skin, but a slightly thin piece of meat is cut along with the skin, to provide us with a bit more bite into the delicious duck meat.

Served with the accompanying sauce, some vegetables and the sauce, we just could not get enough of those Peking Duck slices that night. Of course, the duck wasn't the only dish we enjoyed that wonderful evening. It was going to be a whole full course of up to 10 dishes for us to enjoy that evening. Check them all out below.

We kicked off our next dish with some sinfully oily yet delicious Fried Chicken and their Aromatic Crispy Pork Belly. It was all oil and crisp, as we popped each of those bite sized pieces into our mouths. The fats on the pork belly was a bit too much for me though, as I told myself to restrain myself from enjoying too much of it.

Here's to more oily fried stuff, one which I tried to refrain from, yet the smell and flavour of it tempted me to have my fair share of Melbourne Peking Duck's Butter Chicken and the Home Made Tofu with Fish Meat. Like its name, the chicken was deep fried with these "egg filaments", salted egg yolk to be exact. I liked the taste of the home made tofu as well, as it was deep fried with some really flavourful fish meat.

#6 Stir-fried beansprout with shredded duck meat.

Now I've always wondered where the rest of the duck meat from the initial Peking Duck dish went to. It wasn't confirmed though, but I would like to think that it was used in this delicious plate of Stir-fried beansprout with shredded duck meat. The dish itself was really simple, but the taste wasn't simple at all. It had a myriad of tastes from being salty to spicy, with the shredded duck lending its strong meat flavour to the dish.

The subsequent dishes that were served were really appetizing as well, their Sambal Belacan Kangkung and Yong Chow Fried Rice came in very generous servings. The kangkung was somewhat lacking the flavour from the sambal belacan, which we highlighted to the chef. As for the Yong Chow Fried Rice, it was not unlike the usual chinese fried rice cuisine. Here there were bits of really tasty meat inside to satisfy us fully.

#9 Duck Soup with Salted Vegetables and Tofu

We ended our very satisfying dinner with a dish I could really relate to, as I have it almost every Chinese New Year. Melbourne Peking Duck's Duck Soup with Salted Vegetables and Tofu was exactly what we needed to wash down all those heavy chinese cuisine we had earlier. Overall, it was a really good meal. Do drop by Melbourne Peking Duck in Bangsar Baru should you be in the vicinity.

  4. Melbourne? That's an odd name to choose for an oriental peking duck place... If they have any in Melbourne, the chef would be from Hongkong or other places in China, anyway. I'd love peking duck...anytime - the other dishes look good too but not so refined as in the classier Chinese restaurants.
