The first course is crispy duck skin with madarin crepes (picture on left). This is my favorite part of the meal because of the unique sweet, crispy, and juiciness you get alone just from the duck skin. Usually, duck skin has a really thick soft fatty texture, though the thin duck skin had a bacon-like crispiness. It's thin duck bacon! Also a highlight, is the sweet glaze that has a candy mango flavor you can't get enough of.
The second course is duck soup with assorted vegetables (top right). Similar to other poultry broth, the duck soup has a familiarity though this soup is more flavorful and has great texture with the bits of duck, mushrooms and carrots.
Lastly, the third course is the seasoned sauteed duck served with rice (lower right). The duck is cooked perfectly, just absolutely tender and moist. Unfortunately, it has a strong soy sauce presence that masks the gaminess of the duck though because of that, the dish has a one tone flavor. I wish more flavor is incorporated into this part of the dish especially when the first two courses are packed flavor and uniqueness. Overall, great experience. I would definitely ask for the soup and crispy duck skin again.
