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 :)

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
