Top 5 Duck Dishes To Go Gaga Over

15 Feb, 2018 by Susmita Saha

Duck has been the unsung jewel in a poultry’s crown. Mostly, conspicuous by its absence in mainstream menus, it shines brightly when put in celebration fare across cuisines. Diners rhapsodise about the duck often, not least because it comes with a delicate gamey flavour and dark meat. Brilliant when roasted, confited or braised, the bird can take centre stage in any meal, at any time of the day. So, allow it to take a bow, even as it finds its home at both fine dining establishments and hipster hotspots.


Even as Varq, Taj Mahal, New Delhi’s modern Indian fine dining restaurant completes a decade in business, a new menu celebrating seasonality and healthfulness has been launched. Making its dramatic presence felt here is the Duck Confit, its unctuous flavours pairing beautifully with the nippy weather. The dish is served as a five-spiced duck leg, glistening golden on a white platter, and accompanied with pan-seared breast with caramelised onion-quinoa pulao.
