Contrary to popular belief that roast duck cannot be halal, Norazlina Chong begs to differ. Named after herself, this eatery is certainly not new but it’s a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. ?

The business was established in 2016 with the help of her husband, Zulkarnain Malik. The whole idea was inspired by their Chinese Muslim friend who was looking for authentic halal roast duck.

After much research, they realized that there was a demand for halal roast duck and they decided to join a cooking class with a chef who specialised in roast duck dishes. After months of figuring out the recipe, they finally opened Norazlina Chong Restaurant!

When dusk falls, patrons can be seen rushing to this gem to get a taste of their famous roast duck, inspired by traditional Xinjiang cuisine. According to Norazlina, roast duck is one of the world’s most complex foods – both in terms of preparation and its flavour. ?

Did you know that it takes at least 13 hours to prepare the dish? Yes, that's true! The duck has to go through an intricate cutting process and marinated with various Chinese spices and herbs.

The duck is then showered with hot water and vinegar to caramelise the skin and give it a flavour. The final process involves the duck being left to dry for a minimum of 8 hours! ?

If you’re dining with a group, go for the whole roast duck (RM60) or half duck (RM32). But if you’re dining alone, you can also get a small set that comes with rice and it's only RM10! ?
