After a year of avoiding it, I finally had to go to Duck King. Everyone’s been raving about it and our good friend UE in the Philippines has been asking us to bring him home Duck King forpasalubong (a present usually given by one arriving from a trip) every time we come home.
The entrance is deceptively small. You’ll know why when after you walk through the maze of an entrance and see the entire floor.
The thing is I am not fond of duck meat and in a place like Duck King, it would be a waste to go there since my husband would have no one to share the duck with. This time around we were a group of 5 with his colleagues and it was the perfect time to finally try it out!
Their menu is as massive as their floor area. I swear I thought they were giving me a book. They had such a wide variety of dishes (some I’ve never ever encountered in other chinese restaurants before) that it took us a while to wade through everything and decide on our order. The menu printed on the placemats are not the same items on their “book” so we forgot to order dimsum from them. (Thank God because we over-ordered, as usual!)
My husband asked me to take a picture of this Coke, because he was ecstatic that it was a regular sized can. A lot of places serve the skinny can or the super tiny bottle or Coke Sakto as we call it in the Philippines. And he always has to order 2 of them because it’s never enough! More pictures of glorious food after the jump!
We had a wonderful satisfying meal. My last bite was (get this) the DUCK SKIN WRAP! Yummmm! In total it all came out to Rp 700,000. I think we ordered a meal for 6-7 people, not for 5. Or maybe 5 MEN but we were mostly women so we had some take-away. Next time we’ll other dishes and hopefully somehow find our way through their menu again!
On the way out, we discovered the aquariums with sea creatures so big they were almost mythical in my eyes! I’ve never seen live crabs, lobsters and shells so big! All for the consumption of Grand Duck King customers!
