Koo Zee Doo If You Don't Eat Pork or Rabbit?

Is the menu too limited if you don't eat pork or rabbit? Thank you!

  1. The rabbit is just a special on the weekends so no need to worry. But, there are a bunch of seafood dishes that I love - grilled sardines and a shrimp appie. There's also a delicious steak entree. The duck rice is a must eat but I'm not sure if they use pork in the dish. I went with a group of friends awhile ago and one of the people didn't eat any meat. I don't think she had as much fun as us since we were sharing all of our dishes. This is a great restaurant and I really don't think you'll have a problem but it helps if you like seafood.

      Thank you! We love seafood and this restaurant has been on my list for sometime.

        The duck rice has chorizo in it, but if you like seafood, order the steamed clam appetizer. It is practically big enough to be an entree.

            I may have spoken too soon. We had those clams back in August, but I was just looking on their website and it looks like the menu has changed. However, I do see an interesting squid dish that was not offered when we were there.

              That sounds really good, too. We're going this weekend, so I'll report back.

            We really liked Koo Zee Doo! They were happy to make the duck rice without chorizo and it was one of the best ducks dishes I've ever had. I'm going to try to make the chopped salad with coriander. Also, the salt cod fritters were excellent. Glad we finally made it there. Thanks everyone. Oh, btw the special was rabbit.

        1. Remember to order lightly, portions are large and food is quite rich. Their salt cod dishes are stellar.
