Savour a Culinary Journey at Bebek Goreng Pak Ndut

Psst, a little birdie told us chicken may be a little too conventional! It’s not easy to find halal duck in Singapore, much less in everyone’s favourite Ayam Penyet style. Enter Bebek Goreng Pak Ndut, which changed the game forever! Duck skin crisps up more than chicken skin after frying, making your meal extra crunchy and crispy.

If you’re bought over by its crackling goodness, order a side of Kulit Bebek Goreng / Crispy Duck Skin ($4.90). At Lucky Plaza with a friend who’s craving Ayam Penyet? Save your friendship and order the Ayam Penyet Original With Rice along with your duck - you’ll be killing two birds with one stone!
