“Age is also catching up with the current owners,” the OP said. “They find it such a pity given that this braised duck has more than 50 years of history since their early days at South Buona Vista Road.”

“Our standard order of duck plus their porridge and sambal tofu will be dearly missed,” noted the OP.

The Straits Times (ST) has confirmed the closure, adding that 7 Feb 2024 will be its last day of operations.

Most popular for braised duck menu

The stall has made a name for itself in Singapore’s local dining scene since Lim Ah Too founded Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice Eating House in South Buona Vista Road in 1968, according to ST.

His brother-in-law, Ang Chiap Teck, then learned how to cook Teochew-style braised duck from him before setting up a stall of his own.

He subsequently moved to 81 Desker Road, setting up a larger eatery for diners to enjoy.

The stall’s braised duck is the most popular among customers, with prices starting at S$6 for a single-person serving.
