Kedai Kopi & Makanan Soon Yen, Melaka…didn’t scratch that duck noodles itch

Soon Yen is located in Tengkera and some locals call it ‘under the big tree’ food court. Unfortunately I can’t give the duck noodle the thumbs up.

The noodles is tossed in some thick, starchy gravy sauce, topped with shredded braised duck meat and accompanied with a bowl of herbal soup. The soup was plain in flavour and the gravied noodle also took on the same bland characteristics  but the duck was tender and not very gamey. I’ve had duck noodle from Melaka places that are much better. I was actually pretty disappointed. It was certainly ok but I couldn’t figure out what about it warrants all the buzz and reputation.

Yes, it’s filling but the food failed to excite and didn’t scratch that duck noodles itch. Too bad, so sad. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
