There are a few players in the roast duck market in Singapore, but there’s none quite like Dian Xiao Er, who celebrate 20 years since their inception this 2022. Today, their latest two openings at Downtown East and City Square Mall bring them to 16 locations spread across the island━satisfying a craving for their herbal roast duck has never been easier.

Their Signature Herbal Roasted Duck comes in three variations: Duck Roasted w Angelica Herb (from $17.60++), Duck Roasted w Ten Wonder Herbs (from $17.90++), and Duck Roasted w Wild Ginseng (from $18.60++), but their bestselling is the first with angelica herb, AKA dang gui. Fun fact: Dian Xiao Er sells more than 20,000 roast ducks a month!

Unlike some of the tough, bony birds you might get elsewhere, Dian Xiao Er only uses ducks from Cherry Valley, who are the world’s leading breeder of Peking ducks. These are roasted daily in specially-procured ovens, which ensure that every duck is cooked to perfection.

Complementing the duck is an aromatic, herbal gravy that goes exceptionally well with plain rice, but you’ll find the meat itself is tasty on its own━thanks to long hours of marination in a secret blend of spices and herbs.

Another must-try dish here is Signature Wheatgrass Tofu with Seafood (from $16.60++), starring silken house-made tofu that’s been infused with wheatgrass for its pale green shade. Don’t let that put you off, because it’s got all the nutritious properties of wheatgrass, without its fresh, green flavour.

If that’s too tame for your palate, order yourself a portion of Dian Xiao Er’s Hotplate Fiery Sambal Squid & Prawns with Petai (from $18.90++). Their take on the popular BBQ seafood dish sees a house-made sambal, and stalks of fresh lemongrass stalks fried in for that extra kick.

While we’re on spicy seafood dishes, the Sliced Garoupa in Assam Style (from $23.90++) is one deserving of an extra bowl of rice. Tangy and not overwhelmingly spicy, there’s also slices of pineapple here that lend a touch of sweetness.

You’ll find your usual suspects of eggplant and ladies’ fingers in this pot, while fussy eaters will appreciate the fleshy, boneless garoupa fillets.

Finally, cleanse your palate and get your daily dose of greens with Lotus Roots, Sweet Pea, Water Chestnut with Macadamia Nuts (from $15.30++). This plate of crunchiness looks plain, but it allows the ingredients to shine, with the natural sweetness of sweet peas and water chestnuts complemented by the earthy macadamia nuts.
