Oriental Cuisine At The Crispy Duck Restaurant In Cardiff


The four of us were very hungry by the time we left the beach and It was amost 7pm when we reached The Crispy Duck in Cardiff.  This restaurant was recommended by my ex-classmate, in fact this Pan-Asian restaurant is opened by her brother.  Husband and wife team, specializing in oriental Chinese and Japanese cuisine with some dish influences from China, Thailand, Malaysia and Japan.... When I heard that, I Must Go!

Using Waze, we managed to find the place easily.... We were greeted pleasantly by a friendly girl from Hongkong.  Wasting no time, we ordered a few dishes from the menu and while waiting, Aaron got engrossed in a newspaper clipping on the wall.
Unfortunately, the boss was not around but he left word for the staff to entertain to our orders...
Soon our dishes arrived.....
No crispy duck ordered cos yours truly is refraining from quack quack meat... 
Big bowl of Tom Yum seafood with big prawns and squids.... 
The treasures were embedded beneath....
This is Honey beered chicken or something like that... 
The sauce has a tinge of sweet and savoury taste... Very Nice... 
Eggplants which I love eating and eating....
This is beef in some special sauce too... Very appetizing....
And the Hungry Four!! 
The dishes might look small in size but do not judge by its size.
They were more than enough for us and until this day, I am still salivating over the Tomyum!
Finally.... When we asked for the bill, the sweet staff told us that it was on the house meal from the boss himself!!   Oh My!!  Though we do not know him or seen him before, it is so nice of him to give us a complimentary dinner..... I quickly called him to thank him but I guess he was still at an important meeting and I messaged our sincere Thanks to him! 

Well, I guess my friend must be behind the treat too... So here I say... Thank You to the Lee-s!
If anyone were to drop in to Cardiff, this is where we feel closer to homecooking food....
The Crispy Duck, an Award Winning Oriental Restaurant! 


  1. How wonderful! Perhaps your classmate told him you were coming. It is all very yummy looking. The beef in sauce looks just like our american beef stew.

  2. There are very few award winning oriental restaurants in England. Kudos to The Crisp Duck.

  3. What??? Why aren't you eating duck? My missus does not eat duck but she can cook the best five-spice stewed duck - she just cooked one for me and my girl to enjoy...and that would be once in a blue moon. Can't get any half as nice outside, just the roast versions.

    1. Wahhhh you are truly blessed with such a wife!!

  4. So generous of the boss to let you all eat on the house. If you knew this beforehand would you have ordered less food?

  5. See the Tom Yam soup, makes me drooling, hehe...

  6. Wah, so nice! Good food and free some more :)

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
