No Signboard Braised Duck Owners Are Hanging Up Their Choppers

No Signboard Braised Duck located at Queenstown is a popular dining spot among older folks who stay in the west.


Sadly, the owners have decided to hang up their choppers for good.

The stall, located at Mei Ling Market & Food Centre, will be winding up its business come Nov 27.

Owners wake up at 1am daily for last 50 years

For the past 5 decades, Mr Lim Cheng Kim and his wife Ms Chen Sai Yu have been waking up at 4am daily to travel to their stall and prep ingredients before their opening at 10am.

They would work until around 1pm before packing up and heading home in the evening.

Their stall specialises in braised duck which perfectly complements rice, porridge, and noodles.


The dishes are prepared based on a family recipe passed on from Mr Lim’s father.


The pair, who are now in their 70s, have decided to wind up business due to their old age.

Decline offers to purchase because experience can’t be bought

According to The Straits Times, their children have their own careers and have no plans on taking over.

The elderly couple has received bids to purchase their recipe but has rejected all of them as they feel “the experience required to take over the stall cannot be bought”.

No Signboard Braised Duck will close for good on 27 Nov
