I'm in love



I had crispy garlic 'duck' (lightly battered and fried and tossed in garlic sauce) at my favorite Thai restaurant and I think I'm in love. Very 'meaty' and flavorful. I almost cried with delight.

Congrats! I never ate real duck, and have no desire to try it's mock version, but I'm glad that you found one that you enjoy! BTW, many asian markets sell mock duck on the frozen section (they also sell shrimp and a few other sea-food type of mock meats).

Jennifer, I never had "real" duck either but the mock duck is totally worth trying. It isn't very "meat-like" at all, well, at least the stuff around here - but it is SOOOO good!

Does it tast sea-foodish? The only water-animal I ever enjoyed eating was "tuna" (or whatever was realy in those cans, probaly dolphins or something), and only that with tons of mayo mixed in. I'm not a big fan of the salty taste, though I was talking to an omni who was like "salty tast? IDK what your talking about!" so I hope you understand that!



BTW, have you ever tried any mock tuna? I've made some out of chick-peas before, it was decent but not quite there.

Hmmm... no "seafood-ish" taste, nope. But I don't think real duck is supposed to taste "fishy" either... No anything-meat-ish taste to the mock duck, as far as I know...

I haven't tried the substitute, but real duck actually tastes like a strong gamey chicken (in a way it's closer to turkey, but does not have that particular taste you get from turkey.) Okay, enough about meat.

Ooh, I don't know where you are located, but here in Chicago there is a mostly vegetarian Thai restaurant called Dharma Garden that has fantastic mock duck! It's sooo good! Congrats on finding something so delicious, and veg friendly!



I've never had real duck either, but from what I hear it's supposed to be pretty oily but have a rich meaty taste. Most people I know avoid it just because of the oily part.
