Crispy 7 Spices Roast Duck, Cao Bang Style
From North Eastern Vietnam, Cao Bang is a mountainous province with dynamic ethnicities and a vibrant culinary scene, among the most famous being its native duck, fed with nutritious grains for the brightest-coloured feather and perfect balance between lean meat and fatty skin. For this unique ingredient, Chef Dat hand-picks and infuses each duck with 7 different spices, using his favourite trick of stir-frying the spices first and marinating the duck from inside, so that the meat thoroughly absorbs every flavour throughout the cooking process. Before grilling, each duck is also blanched through hot water for the crispiest skin, and as a final touch, douched in a generous amount of honey.
Paying homage to his favourite coastal cities in Central and Southern Vietnam, Chef Dat also features such specialties as Nha Trang Lobster, Nha Trang Scallop, South Central Tiger Prawn, Quang Ngai Octopus and Phu Quoc Squid in his seafood grill, giving an interesting combination alongside famous imports like Canadian Lobster and French Oysters.
