Roast Duck @ Restoran Sun Ming, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

This place is featured in one of our food guide books and since we venture to Cheras a fair bit, it was only a matter of time before we checked Sun Ming out. Apparently, this restaurant is touted for serving the best roast duck in Cheras.

That's the restaurant, taking up two shoplots.

They sell an assortment of ready-cooked dishes too, beside the roast meats.

We ordered the watercress soup, RM3.50 for a small bowl. It was really tiny, not quite worth the amount paid.

We selected the char siew, siew yoke and roast duck combo (RM20) for 2 persons. Of the 3 types of meat, the char siew was the best. Caramelised-moist and smoky, with charred edges, it rates among the top char siew we've ever eaten, almost comparable to Meng Kee.

Same platter, from another view. The siew yoke was pretty good too; crispy skin with a melt-in-your-mouth quality. The duck, to me, was good but not exceptional. It lacked the crispyness that personifies what, to me, is the best roast duck at Sunrise.

The gravy for the duck.

Our bill came up to RM26.50 for the two of us. I would say Sun Ming serves great roast meats, but the duck here is somewhat overated.

A solid 3-bam for the char siew and siew yoke.

As a fairly regular patron, AND a name-sake [no relations], its only fair to add its DEFINITELY above average!!!

Although like most places, it also depends on whether one orders 'lean' or 'fat' particularly for the 'char siew' n 'siew yok'!
