The Duck Room
Nestled at the front of King Street’s top-notch marketplace Mercado is fine-dining destination The Duck Room. The restaurant offers a Far Eastern-style dining experience, taking inspiration from the vibrant flavours of Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan. As the name might imply, duck takes centre stage at the restaurant, with the signature roast duck being the highlight of the menu. The roast duck meat is dried for seven days, before being marinated, bathed, glazed, roasted and served on its own, with miso soup or as nigiri with torched foie gras and yuzu-pickled summer truffle. Fleshing out The Duck Room’s menu is a range of Cantonese -inspired rice noodle rolls called Cheong Fun, and mains including Szechuan mud crab, Borrowdale free-range pork char-sui and house-processed scampi pearls with Hiramasa kingfish belly tartare. The Duck Room will showcase the recipes and delicacies on offer at Mercado for lunch and dinner, giving diners the opportunity to sample the selection of ingredients before trying them at home.
