my boyfriend and i have been dying for a great crispy duck dish (thai) that is reasonably priced. most dishes lately have had duck that seems fatty and/or soggy. any suggestions? we're located on brookline/brighton border but are open to anywhere in the city.
I haven't had this particular dish from Chili Duck (across from the Pru on Boylston) but we do like many of their preparations. The menu says, "Crispy slices boneless roasted duck glazed with a ginger plum sauce, served with steamed assorted vegetables topped with a peanut sauce, $15.95"
Another great Thai place with this on the menu is Pai Thai Cafe on Boylston heading towards the Fenway. They have two versions, "Panang Crispy Duck- Boneless crispy half duck in panang curry sauce and coconut milk with lemon leaves and basil leaves. Served on a bed of broccoli, carrots and string beans- $14.60"
"Bangkok Duck - Crispy boneless duck served with broccoli and a black sweet sauce $14.60"
Again, I haven't had these dishes but do love the place. They make some of the best Pai Thai when you order it Thai style.
