Good food around JB City Square – Restoran Ya Wang 鸭皇药材烧腊大王 – Jalan Segget Johor Bahru, Johor

Restoran Ya Wang may be the master of the famous Ten Wonder Herbs Roast Duck, however, we will prefer those cooked by the students back here in Singapore, of course, the merit to dine in Restoran Ya Wang perhaps is the price which is definitely a lot more affordable than visiting Dian Xiao Er.

Restoran Ya Wang 鸭王 or the King of Duck is a regular place frequently patronised by many Singaporean due to its close proximity to the JB City Square. The shop is fully air-conditioned so not to worry the heat and humidity.

Popular for its herbal duck and roasted meat, Restoran Ya Wang serves up many zichar dishes as well. Among the signature dishes, you can’t miss the Ten Wonder Herbs Roast Duck (十全烤鸭), the exact replica can be found in Singapore’s Dian Xiao Er chain of restaurants, which Restoran Ya Wang serves as the consultant to this specific dish, how significant of this dish is evident here.

The roasted duck was simmered in the herb-infused gravy that allowed the aroma of the herbs fully absorbed by the meat, the herb-rich gravy was succulent in taste but the duck meat was not tendered and “elastic” in texture, the few trips to Restoran Ya Wang yield the same problems.

However, similar roasted duck from Dian Xiao Er in Singapore surprisingly tasted more superior and robust in both the taste and texture. A classic case of the student surpasses the master.

Roasted meats were average in the standard, char siew was well caramelized with the lovely char flavour, roasted meat was fatty; both were decent in taste but no wow effect here.

Other zichar dishes we tried were fairly ordinary.

Our verdict

Restoran Ya Wang may be the master of the famous Ten Wonder Herbs Roast Duck, however, we will prefer those cooked by the students back here in Singapore, of course, the merit to dine in Restoran Ya Wang perhaps is the price which is definitely a lot more affordable than visiting Dian Xiao Er.
