Duck Dishes – 5 Faves – Ian Curley (Herald Sun)

CRISPY DUCK LEG
Code Black Coffee.
15-17 Weston St Brunswick
Crispy duck leg comes in a potato and spring onion waffle sandwich with chipotle-infused syrup and a fried egg. I love the fact that you can have this dish for breakfast or lunch. Who doesn’t love a classic waffle?

DUCK RAGU
Thirty Eight Chairs.
4A Bond St. South Yarra
This duck ragu is called reginette ricce al ragu di anatra. I taught the chef, Mirco Speri, how to make pasta so whenever I’m there. I always order it.

DUCK DEGUSTATION
Simon’s Peiking Duck Restaurant.
197B Middleborough Rd.
Box Hill South
“Eating Duck 3 ways” includes Peking duck pancakes, stir-fry duck and duck soup. This place is the benchmark for how Asian duck is treated and for the use of the whole duck from nose to tail.

ROAST DUCKLING WITH SPATZLI
Cafe Di Stasio,
31 Fitzroy St. St Kilda
l’ve been having this dish at Cafe Di Stasio for the past 25 years and it’s still hands down my favourite.

CONFIT DUCK LEG
France-Soir.
11 Toorak Rd, South Yarra
Better known as cuisse de canard gras confite. France-Soir is as classic as the confit duck leg itself.
