Famous South Buona Vista Duck Rice Upgrades From Stall To 38-Seat Eatery
Happily, prices remain the same.
When Ang Chiap Teck opened South Buona Vista Road Famous Teochew Boneless Duck Rice at a kopitiam along Sam Leong Road in 2013, he told several publications that he planned to continue the tradition for as long as possible.
The ‘tradition’ he was referring to was the then 45-year-old Lim Seng Lee duck shop at South Vista Road. Its founder, Lim Ah Too, decided to retire in 2013 as he was getting on in years (he was in his late 60s). Chiap Teck, who is the brother-in-law of Ah Too, was given the blessing to revive the famous business using the same recipes.
We’re happy to report that, nearly a decade later, Chiap Teck is still living up to his promise. In fact, his kopitiam stall was doing so well that the 62-year-old relocated to a bigger, standalone shop at Desker Road last Saturday.
“We wanted to provide a more spacious and comfortable environment for our customers to enjoy their food,” says Lily Lim, Chiap Teck’s wife, in Mandarin. “We also like that the new location is just a short walk away from Sam Leong Road, so it’s easy for our regulars to find us.”
