Roast Duck Rice

Golden King Bar­be­cue, Wil­liam St, Northbridge

Thursday. 6th October

I have a much shorter time avail­able for lunch than yesterday’s lux­uri­ous lunch. So I went for straight to Golden King Bar­be­cue, which is just around the corner from work.

I walked in and before I even got to my table, my com­pli­ment­ary bowl of chicken soup arrived. I ordered roast duck rice and before I even checked into to FourSquare, my lunch had arrived. Just under 1/4 a duck, ample serving of steamed rice and some greens.

The greens and rice appear over­cooked, though chilli sauce makes it pal­at­able and some very tasty roast duck.

Golden King Bar­be­cue was a favour­ite eat­ing estab­lish­ment of my col­leagues, when it opened 18 months ago, the qual­ity of the meat used was stun­ning given the prices being charged. Unfor­tu­nately, eco­nomic real­ity set in and the qual­ity of meat used declined dra­mat­ic­ally as did our reg­u­larly patronage.

In the past 6 months, prices have risen slightly and the qual­ity of meats used has improved. Though not to the ori­ginal qual­ity, but in my opin­ion as good as any other Chinese Bar­be­cue res­taur­ants in Northbridge.

Still if I need a good cheap lunch in a hurry, I know where to go. Today I was back in the office in 20 minutes, after spend­ing less than $11 on a good meal, even less if you choose chicken of bar­be­cue pork.
