A restaurant serving only duck has opened in Shoreditch

A restaurant serving only duck has opened in Shoreditch

London's already got plenty of chicken shops and a restaurant serving only turkey, but now another bird is getting its time to shine thanks to a new dedicated duck restaurant in Shoreditch. The Duck Truck started out as a street food van (hence the name), but the founders have just secured their first permanent site at Boxpark in Shoreditch. 

Poultry fans can choose from the restaurant's signature hoisin duck wrap, duck spring rolls, duck scotch eggs, seared duck steaks, a pulled duck brioche bun or crispy confit duck leg. But it's not all meat - there's also Asian slaw, triple-cooked duck fat chips and a pomegranate salad on the menu to accompany all that protein. Quacking stuff.

The Duck Truck is at Unit 52, Boxpark, 2-4 Bethnal Green Rd, E1 6LG

How about a dedicated vegetarian restaurant?  Ducks are very emotional and intelligent animals.  They lay eggs that are delicious to eat.  Why kill the messenger?  This is just heartless and disgusting.

@Dora U It's their intelligence that makes them taste so good! Ironic really, because you don't seem intelligent, but we are not aloud to kill and eat you! You're right about the eggs though, duck egg scotch eggs are amazing!
