Tham’s Roasted Delights sells Peking duck in Ang Mo Kio
We recently paid a visit to the all-new Food Haus in Ang Mo Kio to check out the neon-lit food court and all its unique stalls. One major highlight we found was Tham’s Roasted Delights, a roast meat stall run by an ex-Imperial Treasure and Crystal Jade chef.
The menu has a selection of all your classic roast meats, available with rice or noodles, but one thing that stood out to us was the fact that the stall sells Peking Duck ($50), roasted in-house, after lunch.
It’s rare to find Peking duck at such an affordable price. What’s even more intriguing is that chef Tham will carve and serve the duck, and its crispy skin, to your table with pancakes, as if you’re dining in a Cantonese restaurant.
There are only around 30 ducks available a day, so be sure to swing by right after lunchtime if you want to bag yourself a portion. Note that, unlike restaurants, Tham’s Roasted Delights does not fry the duck meat for you with noodles or rice. Instead, you just have the meat cut and served with a bit of sauce.
You can also order the Black Truffle Roast Duck ($28 for half and $55 for a whole), but do note that a pre-order of at least one day is required. They’re also said to be the first hawker stall to offer this premium roast meat that’s normally served only at fancy Chinese restaurants!
Each duck is coated in black truffle paste before it’s roasted, resulting in blackened, truffle-loaded skin that’s crispy and delightfully fatty.
The meat underneath is juicy and tender as well, infused with a faint truffle aroma.
If a full duck isn’t something you want or have the stomach space for, don’t worry. The stall still has plenty of other things to offer. Their Roast Duck Noodles ($4.50), for one, stars QQ mee kia and tender, fatty duck slices drizzled in a moreish soya sauce. The Char Siew Shao Rou Rice ($5.50) gives you the best of both worlds—siew yoke with melt-in-your-mouth fat, as well as a cap of crispy skin, and caramelised char siew.
Those visiting in the morning can also look forward to the coffeeshop’s newly launched Kaya You Tiao Set ($4). On our visit, the breakfast item was an off-the-menu special, but it should be officially available by the time this article is out.
Each fritter is slathered with pandan kaya and a slab of butter. It’s crispy, sweet and savoury, making it the ideal accompaniment to your cup of morning kopi. You can also get the kaya butter you tiao at $2.
Food Haus is an 11-minute walk from Ang Mo Kio MRT Station. It’s not the most convenient, but the coffeeshop’s unique food offerings will make your journey worthwhile.
