Bonjour and merci to a new pop-up, Duck In Duck Out.
Waddling its way in Surry Hills this April is a brand new pop-up restaurant, Duck In Duck Out. Opening its doors on 6th April and running until 30th June, you can expect a stellar line-up of French duck classics turned into delicious fast-food dishes. At the helm is famous French chef and judge on MKR, Manu Feilde, teaming up with friend and Balinese Restaurateur Phillip Davenport.
“Our duck burgers, hot dogs and bao buns have all the complexity and richness of classic French dishes, with a contemporary twist that makes them an easy everyday indulgence. It’s a great new angle on the current burger trend,” says Feildel.
Both chefs have classic French and Asian food training and influences. At the pop-up, you can see how both cuisines merge delightfully into each dish. Davenport adds, “Being in the centre of Sydney and open for lunch and dinner is a position that really fits with our approach. Duck In Duck Out is using exquisite flavours and time-honoured techniques to create street-food that’s a little bit wicked and very accessible.”
The Quack Daddy burger is a must-try with rich confit duck leg, celeriac remoulade, rocket, red onion jam, pickles and harissa aioli served on a soft milk bun ($16).
The Duck Dogs ($12) are sensational. Sometimes people steer away from hotdogs as the sausage is dry and uninteresting, but these are completely the opposite. Juicy duck sausage served two ways, one being spicy style, The Ducking Hot, with buttered sauerkraut, harissa aioli, fried shallots and pickles, and the other being the Downward Duck Dog with its hearty duck sausage, buttered sauerkraut, homemade tomato relish, mustard and aioli, fried shallots and pickles.
We all know Manu loves his sauce and it’s no surprise here that every dish comes out with a finger-licking housemade sauce. The cute Duck Bao’s come served with two ($16) and are filled with Asian BBQ sauce, shiitake and cucumber pickles.
There’s a few other options on the menu including the Crispy Duck Drumettes A L’Orange (3 for $16), Quack cigars ($9) and FukDat Potatoes ($6)….like their name, they’re a bit cheeky.
Looking for a quick and delicious meal? Why not Duck In and Duck Out. There are seats in the courtyard and undercover space, but the option to takeaway is perfect as these are all handheld French classics.
