Duck King at Restoran Ya Wang, Johor Bahru

It is really hard to find good food in Johor Bahru (JB). I have asked a few friends and they recommended food such as Kacang Phool and Mee Rebus. Recently, I went to JB for work and we stumbled upon this popular roast duck restaurant called Duck King at Restoran Ya Wang.

The restaurant is called Ya Wang and not Wayang. The name ‘Ya Wang’ in Chinese Mandarin mean Duck King and itt is located at No 28, Jalan Segget, Johor Bahru. Thus, it is just within the walking distance to the causeway bridge.

The moment we stepped in, the mature waitress kept bragging about how good is their roast duck and how many times they were featured in Singaporean press and media. I guess she never tried roast ducks in Kuala Lumpur.

Well, to me it is okay u know if you mention once or twice but throughout our lunch, it was quite annoying as she kept on bragging about it.

We ordered Char Siew (caramelised pork), Siew Yuk (Roast pork) as well as their famous roast ducl.

Char siew is ordinary in terms of texture and taste. I prefer three layers meat for char siew and the siew yuk taste better.

Instead of rice,we ordered the egg noodles.

Lastly, it was their famous roast duck. Kuala Lumpur’s roast duck is usually roasted to perfection with a darker colour for the duck’s skin.

Ya Wang’s version of roast duck actually used herbal broth as their sauce. For that, the duck meat was soaked with herbal broth while still maintained the crispiness of the duck skin. The skin colour of their duck skin is much lighter. The taste comes with hints of the herbal taste and slightly different than the ones in KL.

Some of my friends preferred the Kuala Lumpur version, while the rest thinks otherwise. Either way,this is a decent place for roast duck in Johor Bahru. The pricing is similar to the pricing in Kuala Lumpur, most likely inflated by the Singaporean tourists.
