If it were up to me to come up with a name for a new Modern Chinese restaurant with duck as the focus of the menu, ‘Duck Restaurant’ is probably the most exciting name I’d come up with. Luckily, Holy Duck! seems to have hired a much much more creative soul to name and create this fun and exciting newcomer to Kensington street’s growing food scene!
The creativity doesn’t stop at just the name either- just have a peek at their unique menu and you’ll see what I mean. Holy Duck! is the latest baby of Chef’s Gallery, and it brings some fresh new twists to Asian street food. And whilst I would have happily devoured my way through the menu through multiple visits, I was only too happy to accept and invitation to their VIP Preview night, where I could try a selection of their signature dishes in one go!
As the name may suggest, the star of the show here is the duck- and more specifically- roast duck with menu items ranging from just plain roast duck to the classic peking duck pancake to duck burgers. And if the amount of duck is a little overwhelming, there’s also other some chicken and pork on offer too. Think classic Cantonese BBQ. But jazzed up.
