Braised Duck Rice Collage

For many Singaporeans, a good ol’ plate of chicken rice may be what their idea of comfort is and is what people often crave most especially after a long time abroad. For us, braised duck rice is an equally contestable dish that also brings us comfort like no other.

There are a countless number of stalls serving braised duck rice here in Singapore. However, not all of them can guarantee the same level of satisfaction. Yes, we’re talking about a braised duck that’s both tender and succulent, deeply enriched with just the right amount of spices and coated in a sauce that you just want to spoon over every edible thing.

Here we have sussed out 8 braised duck rice stalls in Singapore that we can be certain you’ll make return trips for—short waiting time not guaranteed.

Established in 1980, Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck & Kway Chap whips up classic Teochew-style braised duck but with a creative twist.

They offer a rather unique rendition of braised duck rice that gives the dish an entirely fresh look—think yam rice served in the form of rice balls and a side of Harajuku eggs! We don’t know about you, but never have we seen duck rice presented in this manner before.

Unlike the usual braised duck stalls, Liang Zhao Ji does not serve kway chap to go with their perfectly tender duck but we reckon that it is because their duck rice is set to satisfy any of your braised duck cravings

For something more comforting and equally delectable, opt for their duck porridge (S$3) which features braised duck hidden beneath Cantonese-style congee—the magic happens when you mix the braising sauce together with the porridge. So delicious!

Seng Huat Duck Rice


Situated in Sembawang Hill Food Centre, Seng Huat Braised Duck remains as one of the best-kept secrets of residents in the area. Despite its rather out-of-the-way location and early opening hours, this stall remains popular amongst the crowd and sees a perpetual queue during their operational hours.

For S$4.50, you get a generous helping of tender braised duck which boasts the perfect lean meat to fatty skin ratio, a plate of white rice doused with their savoury braising sauce and a dark soup to complete your meal.

Helmed by 3 brothers, Sia Kee Duck Rice uses a recipe that was passed down through generations. Their braised sauce is made from scratch—neither overly sweet nor overly savoury, the sauce brings every other element of the dish together and it is a showstopper in its own right.

For those who crave a fiery kick, remember to add some of their homemade chilli sauce into your meal for it really packs a punch!
