Newly halal-certified Amoy Street braised duck stall sells traditional Hokkien braised duck since 1976; now run by group of young hawkers

Kim Men Seng Heng braised quarter duck

Places serving halal duck dishes are hard to come by, so you might want to visit this newly halal-certified braised duck stall at Amoy Street Food Centre on Maxwell Road.

The stall is named “Kin Men Seng Heng” (“Kin Men” in honour of the owner’s grandfather’s birth place, Kin Men Island in Taiwan while “Seng Heng” is a Hokkien amalgamation of “seng gong” which means success and “heng heng” that means lucky.

Today, the stall is run by a third generation hawker (the grandson of the original owner) together with 3 other co-owners.

Known for tender braised duck and herbal broth

If your experience with duck has only been limited to the roasted version and/or bebek goreng, this place is known for Hokkien-style braised duck instead.

Possibly Singapore’s first halal Hokkien braised duck, the dish typically consists of very tender meat, and a distinctively herbaceous broth, balanced with spices:
