Duck at Wondee Siam I

Have other posters noticed that duck dishes at Wondee Siam (I) tend to involve duck with an interesting (not necessarily in a positive sense) texture?

I had the second-listed duck dish last night, involving an almost duck bacon-type, slightly drier than normal/possibly quasi-fried (not deep fried) texture. It was presented on top of greens, with bits of pineapple, onions/scallions, crushed nuts, rehydrated shrimp, julienne of green apple, etc. Some of the duck slices were thin and more dried from the prepration method than others (not that it was dry in texture). I wonder if there might have been slight smoking involved.

(I've sampled 2 of the four or five dishes officially listed under the duck heading)

Also, I considered the deep fried tofu to not be particularly appealing either. It was a large portion for $3 as an appetizer, but the underlying tofu tasted not so great. :)
