J, on the other hand, had never been to Australia and instead of me extolling how good the roast duck there was, it was best to let the duck do its own quacking! So, it was only natural to head straight to Sydney's Chinatown for a roast duck fix at our first opportunity. And there it was! The King of Roast Duck!
BBQ King is on the corner of Goulburn St and Sussex St, right in Sydney's Chinatown.Look at the many ducks hanging up there, glistening with mouth-watering delight!
It was about 3pm when we headed there with rumbling tummies after touring the Sydney Aquarium and we had the restaurant all to ourselves! We were immediately seated and a menu was barely pushed into our hands when a waiter quickly trotted out of the kitchen with 2 sets of bowls and a big, steaming hot bowl of watercress soup with generous hunks of pork ribs! We were a little hesitant in tucking in as there was no indication as to whether it was complimentary. But hunger soon took over and we drained the soup as a delicious appetiser to the meal.
We ordered 1 plate of roast duck rice to share which was wise as it came in a HUGE portion.
That plate was A$12. It's a little pricey after conversion to RM (approximately RM36). But with a big bowl of free soup, free tea and all that wonderful duck, it was well worth it! Now, just to know where good roast duck is in KL whenever that roast duck craving hits again!
