The Tastemakers made their way to many stalls at Seah Im, but it is at this one they found their unanimous favourite, the Braised Duck Rice ($2.80). Unlike most, Cai Ji’s rendition manages to retain moistness so that the boneless duck is always tender. Similarly well done are the optional add-ons of innards like braised tofu, gizzards and the highly recommended pig’s ears — Tastemaker Jonathan Wong likes that they’re cooked perfectly soft, yet had enough bite in them to thoroughly satisfy. Follow Tastemaker Jason Wong’s lead and swap your regular rice out for yam rice, which he describes to be “fragrant, toothsome and peppered with tiny cubes of yam”.
Avg Price: $5 per person
