I thought that this was a very successful dish. I loved the combination of the duck, whole wheat pasta, smoked cheese, and breadcrumbs. It was a hearty pasta dish, but the flavors were great and you can’t get it anywhere else!

Crispy duck – Mesa

Crispy duck - Mesa
1/4 duck deep fried and served with sweet chili sauce. 390 PHP
Mesa, Boracay PHILIPPINES

This duck was ok. I think it was over-fried in my opinion, but I found that this is how many of the fried proteins come out. They tend to be too dry and tough for my liking. I guess that’s why they always come with some kind of dipping sauce.
