The talk of town – Four Seasons Roasted Duck from Bayswater is here in Malaysia! I was more than happy to tag along when my colleague suggested lunch there. Despite running business in a rather obscure place, Capsquare, the place is packed to the brim on weekdays lunch hour. I reckon that the crowd will just die off in the evening or worst during the weekends, which is why they choose to be close on Sunday.
There was this glass window next to the main entrance where one can peep into the hanging ducks and place their order for take away. The ducks, hanging side by side, glistening and lacquered has created a seductive lure on us. Clearly, they take pride in their roasted duck so much that no efforts were spared in the restaurant’s interior.
A quick glance at the menu, Four Seasons serve the usual Hong Kong/Chinese fare like pork ribs, guai fei chicken, roasted meat, etc at a slightly hefty price tag. For quick lunch, one can opt for the individual serving of duck rice at RM 8.80++, a dual combi at RM 12.00++ , or a triple combi at RM 16.00++.
Our order of half duck (Rm 25++) arrived shortly. The glistening dark brown skin says it all. The meat is so moist and tender that it crumbles nicely as you bite into it. The only downside would be the duck, appear to be a little skinny with little fats beneath the not so crispy skin. My colleagues commented that they still prefer the roasted duck from Four Seasons Bayswater where a fatter variant of duck is used.
The total bill comes to RM 70 with 3 rice, 4 drinks, a plate of greens and half a duck. The roasted duck is good but not to the extent that make us go ‘wow’. Overall, it’s a good place for a family meal or corporate lunch with decent food and acceptable services (not too attentive nor too rude).
