“over rating”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Eaten at this place in March 2014. Ordered a quarter of the bird which costs NT500.
Almost choked to death on my first bite. The skin and fats were tough and it was difficult to break even after chewing for a long time. Decided to just swallow it as it was not a very big piece. Who knows, it got stuck in my throat and luckily there was a small portion which I could used my finger to pull it out. Sounds disgusting but I managed to pull it out and kept coughing non stop.
The meat tasted saltish, tough, dry and not very meaty. Besides salt, I could not taste any spices in it. Will not eat it again.

“Tasty rice noodles in duck soup!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Great on a cold winter day! For noodles in soup, they served it with 2-3 thin slices of duck in it but it was very tasty.

The sliced duck on a plate was rather fatty and oily though. They allowed you to state your preference upfront (we only saw that notice afterwards) but they didn't have to give us the fattest duck in their store even if we hadn't stated our preference :-(
