Watch out .. DUCK!

We saw JAYA ONE for the 1st time (up close and personal) .. and we LOVE it! I mean, this place is uber trendy and cool and full of promise... Lets hope that the management doesn't screw it up... ahem! So far .. it looks like it's bursting with potential... !

So.. we were walking around.. soaking up the vibe... wondering where to eat...

It was the SIGN that caught us by surprise...

So cute! so ingenious...! So chinese-y yet NOT! We just had to check it out for ourselves...

DUCKING!

We couldn't wait to sample the food...

such a modern, swanky place... all air-conditioned and high-tech and luxurious and all... so much better than your average coffee shop duck rice place.. surely the FOOD had to be GOOD... rite?!

well.. the proof of the pudding is in the eating... so.. less talk.. lets EAT.

Being suckers for good food and all things LARD worthy, we decided to cut to the chase, and order the restaurant's Pièce de résistance.. the duck.

All kinds.

Every kind.

Ooo yea.. we were on a roll...

Starting at 1 o'clock... The Teow-Chew Braised, The Regular Roasted and , last but not least..., The Nanjing Salted...

all this gorgeous duck would not be complete without the signature wantan mee noodle...

so.. THAT, we ordered, too.

So "how was the food?" you say?

erm... well...

10 minutes into the eating...

my colleagues look at me and say... "so pretty.. so nice looking.. but no taste la..."


That about sums it up. All show, no go.



The braised duck at PJ STATE is so much better. The roast duck at Sunrise Sea Park is soooooooooo much more tasty.

Which just goes to show.. don't judge a book by its cover.

For me and my colleagues, we will take long queues, sweltering heat and jostling elbows any day, over air-conditioning, luxurious deco and plush seats... if that's what it takes to have a satisfying meal.

That's just the way we are :P

Sigh, I was eyeing this place as I could spy it from the main road. Maybe I shld look for Jaya Noodle Hse instead as that is assured quality.
