Whenever I go to a restaurant, and I see “duck” on the menu, I get really excited! and I can tell you the Duck House does not disappoint.
Duck, naturally, is the signature dish here. The kitchen artfully presents a wide standard Chinese menu that highlights Cantonese dishes with fresh produce. While the food The gorgeous, Zesty Orange duckling is a spectacle: Masterfully done and full of flavours!
I like hot and spicy so went for a Bejing roasted duck with spicy hoi sin sauce. It was hot but very tasty. Served with some Naan bread to cool the spices, it was delicious!
Do not forget about their lovely cocktails.
Eddie… How did the team come up with the concept for Zen The Duck House, and how did the name evolve?
“First of all I wanted to change the Hakka Noodles being a primarily Lunch time restaurant to a more evening venue. Entrance is important to relocate to the main street so you can find us just next door from Zen. I wanted decor inside to be darker and food has to be different in a way not just offer to offices worker during a day, but also have attention to evening diners,as well we are family friendly restaurant during t-time. So, I decided to expand the Zen brand into Hakka and call it Zen the Duck House.”
“I started with bringing Zen’s style red bricks and the buddha music across into the new theme. Our Head Chef is specialized on duck and we can say we serve the best duck dishes in Belfast. Ducks are sourced locally from Co. Monaghan and freshly prepared daily.”
WHAT ABOUT THE DECOR? Love your duck tree!
“Yes! – Like a cherry blossom but built with 8 thousands yellow ducks and a young local student artist Yuki Mok helped us to draw the wall mural”
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY TO ALL YOUR COSTUMERS?
