Yummy Birds - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Birds


Yummy roasts from Singapore!

One must-have activity for my foreign guests when they visit Singapore is to go Geylang (a red-light district) to visit my favourite chicken and duck stall. I'm referring to edible barbequed birds

The Chinese refers to a hooker as 'Chicken' and a gigolo, 'Duck'. lol .... er.... some of the guys do request for the the other version. :P



I have never eaten a Bishop's Nose (chicken backside). It's too gruesome for me.....  but the guys wiped out all the chicken backsides that night  ewww......


Chef carving a Peking Duck

Another yummy way of serving a duck is the famous Peking Duck dish. The Peking Duck is traditionally carved in front of the diners. The thin, crispy skin is eaten with pancakes, spring onions, and sweet bean sauce. The remaining meat and bones may be made into a soup.

Bird Flu!? I just have to eat less birds......

  10. I Love Peking Duck. the crispiness of the skin and the tasty sweet sauce. it's the best. I can imagine that you have the best crispy duck in Singapore; as I've read that the food is simply the best anywhere.

  11. Chicken and duck are all very well but my favorite roast meats actually are goose and pigeon! ;b

    (Oh, and FYI, apparently "ngor" (goose) is now Cantonese slang for a sex worker with both male and female clients!!!!!)

  18. Sorry I am so late in commenting on your PH post. Great take on the bird theme. I was almost at wits end trying to think of something to post! Couldn't get out to take pics of live birds. You solved the challenge in an original manner.
    You make me hungry! I would not mind having a plate of chicken or Peking duck right now. It's a quarter past three in the morning. (The only time I can write undisturbed!)
    Take care!

  20. RE Ausetkmt,
    We have a few restaurants in Singapore which serve a truly yummy Peking Duck (expensive too).

    I love eating Peking Duck but seldom do that in Singapore because it is expensive.

    We have lots of yummy local dishes in Singapore, most are not expensive. Come and taste them!

  21. Tekkaus,
    They are meant to be eaten.
    Eat less, now ducks getting more costly.

  22. Hello Gagay!

  23. jams,
    Tasty bird. :)

    I presume if there are tasty parts to eat, one would not think of eating the Parson's Nose. :P

  24. foongpc,
    Not every one finds the other version of the chicken and duck yummy. :P

    I like steamed chicken feet! Some friends do find eating such things gross. hehe....

  25. tigerfish,
    I don't know much about the chicken backsides because I have never tried one. :P

    I love Peking Duck too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG!! Stanley!
    I have never tried it and will never try it.

  27. Lina,
    Peking Duck is so delicious! Especially one from Beijing. Oh, the taste is so heavenly!

    No chicken backside or any other backside for my meals!

  28. oceanskies,
    For those who truly want to experience Singapore, they appreciate my efforts. But I try to accommodate their requests because some of them rarely have a chance to travel overseas.

  29. Luna,
    Yes, there were some hilarious moments, especially in a red-light district. :)

  30. YTSL,
    It's not common to find roast goose or pigeon here in Singapore. I enjoy both roasted versions of these birds when I was in Hong Kong. The taste is so unforgettable!

    OMG, I didn't know ngor is for a sex worker with both male and female clients!!! Cannot say 'I want ngor' when I'm in HK liao. :D

    The chickens and ducks - Dead or alive, they are still birds. :)

    Chaos.
    When you are with the Chinese community, please don't call for a chicken or duck. hahaha....

    I think Peking Duck is the favourite dish of most people who have eaten it. It's such a tasty dish!

  37. Hi Kelvin,
    You would probably love the wide selection of chicken backsides done in many ways in China. :P

    ReplyDelete
  38. Gran,
    It's the common slang in our Chinese community. :P

  39. Hi Anna,
