WTD... What The Duck!

I've discovered this restaurant accidentally through the Facebook page of an old friend. I personally think that the name of "What The Duck" or WTD sounds very interesting. The restaurant is located at the Nagore Road, it's on the left while you enter this one-way road. I like the old house and especially the symbols that are drawn at the walkway of the entrance. The slogans are written on the wall, they claim themselves as the "Delectable, Unique Cuisines, Knowable".

We've shared the Duck Lover Platter of Trio and the Balinese Crispy Duck (Bek-Bek). The earlier is the appetizer that consists of a "glass" of duck chowder with a bread stick, the white toast that is topped with a slice of smoked duck meat and the Tomato Cilantro Salsa and also the Thai style duck roll. The thick chowder tastes alike vegetable and peanut-based and it'll filled with shredded duck meat. My advice is to eat the soup while it's hot or else it'll coagulate if it gets cold. The saltiness of the smoked duck is just perfect for the plain toast. I like the thinly sliced Kaffir Lime Leaf that has given a nice aroma and enhanced the deliciousness of the tortilla roll. It's a tiny disappointment that the duck meat is just too little compared to the thick wrap. Bek-Bek is a famous Indonesian dish whereby the crispy fried duck is served together with the white rice, some condiments and the chili-based sauce. I've really enjoyed the mixture of the chopped tomato, capsicum, onion with the Kaffir Lime Leaf as these toppings are really delicious with the sour dressing. The chili-based sauce that is slightly spicy is good yet it's not the most favourite of mine that I've ever eaten.

Su has decided to take the set lunch with beverage that comes with a soup of the day or the Shredded Confit Ducky Salad with Orange, Walnut and Greens. Either the soup or the salad; the winner is the salad and the fresh vegetable tastes really appetizing with the soft and juicy shredded duck. Out of the 3 choices of main course, Su has taken the Duck a-la Orange that is served on top of the mashed potato and being garnished with the caramel orange sauce. The duck meat is indeed too chewy yet the salty skin is very tasty. I wonder if the Chef is able to solve the chewiness of thick breast meat?

We're satisfied and indeed quite amazed by the food that we've decided to go for the dessert as well. We've ordered the Sizzling Brownies with the Special Ice-Cream and the Caramelized Banana Sauce and also the Salted Duck Egg Cotton Cheese Cake. The sweetness of the chocolate brownies is matching the saltiness of the special ice-cream perfectly and together with the thick sauce, this dessert is superb. The hot cake meets the cold ice, the taste is just "Wow"! Oppositely, we can't finish the cheesecake that is made of the salted duck egg. The taste doesn't seem to blend well that the whole sponge cake tastes just powdery and it smells alike the rotten egg.

The over all experience here is good whereby the price of the food is really reasonable. They're not really expertise in every dishes that are made of the duck yet they've done well on most of the dishes that we've tried out here.
