Restoran I Po @ Klang
‘Taste is Subjective’ I would say, after browsing reviews of Restoran I Po on internet.
I was recommended to Restoran I Po by a friend and I purposely made a visit to Klang for the roasted duck with crispy skin that he raved about.
It was a raining afternoon when we arrived for late lunch and the place was rather vacant with only 3-4 tables occupied for both air-conditioned and non air conditioned section.
Roasted ducks with glistening amber skin hung at the chopping counter was a sight to behold.
Roasted Duck (Half Duck – RM30.00)
Portion wise, the size of their roasted duck was smaller than the usual one as I’ve read that they use young ducks of a little over a month old for its finer meat texture. The amber hued fowl was in all its shining glory with a beautiful crackly skin. The flavour of the meat however was less satisfying, it was not as flavourful as I hoped. Both sweet sauce and chili sauce (with hint of sweetness) came as rescuer to slightly pick up the flavour. The meat was tender and succulent nonetheless.
I Po also offers roasted chicken, roasted pork, Char Siew as well as assortment of cooked dishes such as fried lala, salted vegetables, mustard green stew aka Chai Boey that you can pick from the counter (ala economy rice style).
Verdict: Their famous roasted duck was just alright, but maybe it’s just not to my preferential taste as you can read many good reviews online. Don’t take my word for it, come and try it yourself if you are at this area and let me know your verdict!
