Pi-Pa Duck

As we were approaching this town (E.T.A. 1½ hours), I called Ah Tan to have him know that there would be 9 of us coming for late lunch, and requested him to reserve some duck for us... not just any duck, but Pi-Pa to be exact Despite traveling in a convoy of 3 cars with first-time companions, my estimation was pretty right on cue. Driving slower than usual and having had a late start didn't throw off our schedule; we all pretty much arrived in tact with only a failed air con. in one of the cars.

As usual Mrs. Tan was beaming to see us... more so this time to see another fellow Johorean in a small town in the middle of Sarawak, where Foochow forms the majority of the townsfolk (although Wil and Bonkersz might disagree).

Braised Chicken Feet

The crisply fried Pi-Pa duck was the first dish to arrive on the table. It seemed we had more than a duck from the look of the plate above (3 drumsticks sticking out). Next was the braised chicken feet, coupled with some pig's trotters for good measure. Someone who has a relish for such feet sure didn't take much of a feat to tuck in those chicken goodies in no time. That inviting plate of curry sure had its comeuppance. The curry leaves were tell-tale signs.

Another 2 plates of fried vegetables rounded up a delectable lunch. With the dragon fruit drinks and all, the bill came to RM70. With all the food in the tummy, my sense of direction was momentarily lost as I struggled to find the way out of town through the new bridge. Alas, a kid on motorbike from the housing estate was kind enough to guide me out of the maze.

This looks so tempting n for only 70.00. It is really cheap if compared to Sibu. Discount the drinks n rice, you probably left with only 50.00 for the food.

you're right! the dragon fruit drink is RM2.50 each, so the drinks probably came to RM20.

It's so cheap! Did they give u a special discount? I think we can only have 1/2 of the pi-pa duck over here.

Kong-Kay said...

no discount, i think... i never ask, just gave the mrs. tan RM100 (assuming that was enough), and RM30 came back with the remark drinks included already. i used to pay RM35 for the whole duck for take-away. come to think of it, probably the side dishes were on the cheap side.


As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
