The popular Chinese fusion bar, Whistling Duck Tavern, located in Hillcrest is offering two delicious new dishes for June: Fried Cornish Hen and Pecking Duck. Limited time ONLY. Don’t miss the opportunity!
▲ Thinking of taking your dad to have some beer and great food? Whistling Duck Tavern is offering “Fried Cornish Hen” for the Father’s Day weekend!
Don’t know what is a Cornish hen? A Cornish hen is a “young chicken,” weighing not more than two pounds ready-to-cook weight. Simply put, a Cornish hen is a chicken that is small enough to be eaten by one person in one setting.
Whistling Duck Tavern’s crispy and juicy fried Cornish hen is served with mashed taro with pork belly gravy. Unlike the typical mashed potato, the chef specially prepares the purple-ish mashed taro made from taro, one of the main ingredients used in Chinese/Taiwanese cooking! Taste and see if you can notice the difference! Taros have more of a nutty flavor than potatoes!
▲ Peking duck is a dish from Beijing, China that has been prepared since the imperial era. The authentic version of the dish is usually served with crispy skin and little meat, sliced in front of the customers. The meat is usually eaten with spring onion, cucumber and hoisin sauce with a bao, Chinese steamed bun. This dish is good to share so everyone in your party can have a taste of this little piece of heaven!
