So, first off.. I tried duck feet and they surprisingly weren’t bad… but they were also covered in a really good spicy mustard. Definitely a weird texture.

Next, this thing came to the table… in what I can only describe as a block of jello holding together different body parts of duck. Probably the grossest thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on.  My friend said it looked like a hunk of thrown up Tiramisu, and he’s not wrong.  Usually, I’m a trooper and I can try anything at the table, but just look at this thing..NOPE.

The roast duck tasted pretty amazing and is served with very thin tortillas, spring onions and a thick soia sauce to make a DIY wrap out of. Dare I say the best duck I’ve ever had? Or was it just because this is what I tasted after the duck feet and the grossest dish I’ve ever seen? We’ll never know.
