Hunting For The Flavors & Texture Of Yesteryears'


Pei Pa Duck in Lunas, Kedah.

Sometime in early July(2010), we were in Mahang, Kedah to carry out a photography session on German Shepperd Dog training for one of our website projects that we were engaged to design and built. And after the session ended and while on the way back to Penang, we had the opportunity to try out this “Roast Meat” (烧腊) stall in Lunas, Kedah. I would not say it was the best “Pei Pa Duck” (琵琶鸭) that I have ever had because simply I haven’t tried all. But what can be said is that it is more flavourful, tender and succulent then the version I have tasted recently at Lorong Susu, Penang.

Before we plunged all the way, we first ordered a roast pork, BBQ pork and roast duck mix plater, a quarter pei pa duck with white rice and a bowl of soup. The stall was featured before in some new papers, but due experience we prefer to test the water first before we incur more “damage”.  We were skeptical when the first portion was served but after sampling the the meats that we ordered, to our delight they actually better than average.

The BBQ pork was tender to the bite and was nicely crusted with caramelized sweet marinate.   The sweet marinate though sweet, was not overwhelming. The roast duck that we had was not really exceptional, it was tasty and juicy. As for the roast pork, it was one of our favourites apart from the pei pa duck, in fact we had an extra serving of it after we had “kautim” (finished) our first order. The roast pork was tender although it was slightly burnt. The crispy skin of the roast pork was fine and had a hint of deep fried lard bit flavour which are normally often  masked by the after taste left by the bicarbonate or baking soda used to encourage the skin to crisp and fluff.

Tip: Don’t over indulge on the roast pork as it would be too much of a good thing.

Finally the pei pa duck! It had crispy skin and yet the meat was not dry nor rough in texture, in fact the meat was tender to the last piece we had. The skin’s crispiness was light and refreshing, unlike the dull feeling that we have felt on other pei pa ducks we have had recently.

Tips: The light sauce and accompanying green chili went well with the pei pa duck. Always ask for the rear end portion for more skin and juicier meat.

Taste & Texture:

  • 3.5/5
  • Like the tender juicy meat and crisp skin of the pei pa duck and the fragrant roast pork. BBQ pork was well marinated and not overwhelmingly sweet.

Money Value:

  • 3.5/5
  • Surprisingly the cost of the big meal that we had considerably cheap compared to those that we have had in Penang alone.


  • 3.0/5
  • Service without much hiccups.


  • 3.0/5


  • 3.0/5
  • warm during sunny days.
