Homestyled kfc a.m. porridge/ Duck Tales!

A handful of chinese mushrooms; soaked and sliced

A cereal bowl sized offering of yesterday's shredded KFC :)

Some chinese kale blanched with a few drops of oil, an egg and there we have a pseudo KFC a.m. porridge meal with proper greens. Not spring onions. :)

Crunchy lotus root fried with chestnuts, snow peas, carrots, gingko nuts and macadamia nuts. a small offering and I managed a tiny bit of macadamia. it was a pleasantly refreshing vegetable dish :)

The restaurant's signature duck offering. We had the whole roast duck in Wild American Ginseng.  

The crispy skin was flawlessly executed. Most of the duck was accompanied by minimal levels of fat to give that glistening shine and tenderness to the meat. It was a dish even my stressed teeth could handle :) 
Old style fish slices. This was tastier (albeit a little on the salty side) than the ones offered at The Soup Restaurant. There was a generous serving of mushrooms, lean meat, pickled vegetable strips, spring onions and sliced red dates.

And at the end of the day, our mystery was solved. These roast ducks at Dian Xiao Er do not come with duck wings nor the neck and head. :) Whatever happens to the wings then?

Pricier than The Soup Restaurant but draws equal crowds. I suppose it's whether one is looking for duck or chicken as their main dinner offering.

Which would you prefer?
