Fortune Duck has been replaced by F Duck Restaurant, which continues to offer Chinese cuisine with duck as the featured ingredient. The range of dishes offered is quite diverse, consisting of familiar Chinese dishes and dishes best described as contemporary Asian cuisine.

The use of yuzu in the Lemon Yuzu Chicken gave the dish a distinctive tangy taste, which was enhanced by slices of the fruit itself. The pieces of deep-fried chicken breast were cooked just right, with the coating setting off the flesh well. Adding a crunchy element were pieces of caramelised walnuts, which also add a bit of sweetness to the dish.

Their F.Duck Clay Pot Rice puts a twist on Claypot Rice by substituting the chicken with duck, and using chorizo instead of the usual Chinese sausage. The duck was tender with a delectable savoury taste and the chorizo imparted a unique smoky taste. Adding to the enjoyment was light and fluffy rice, which had a bit of the crusty base we expected from Claypot Rice. To best enjoy the dish, mix everything thoroughly to spread the taste of the sauce through the rice.

As suggested by its name, the Eggplant in Mapo Style is essentially a vegetarian version of Mapo Tofu, replacing the pork mince with eggplant. The slices of eggplant were soft with a bit of bite and were complemented nicely by the firmer chunks of tofu. There was enough chilli bean sauce to give the dish the flavour of Mapo Tofu. Enjoying the dish slowly is advised as the eggplant remains steaming hot for a while.

The tired-looking interior of Fortune Duck Restaurant is gone. In its place is a clean, modern look with a relaxed ambience. F Duck Restaurant is worth visiting for the tasty dishes on its menu.

I love duck, so it is interesting to read about a restaurant that specialises in it.
