Duck Me!

I was watching Grill It with Bobby Flay and they were doing duck. It got me thinking back to food in Korea. I never really enjoyed duck until I was in Korea.

The first time I had it was nothing fancy, duck pieces grilled kind of like samkyubsal. The grill was more of a dome than a grill so a lot of the fat ran off. The duck was not gamey at all. The problem I had with duck in Canada the few times I ate it was that it was too gamey. I don't mind a little gamey but it just didn't work with the duck I had.

Another great way of having duck was Ori Ros, which is roast duck. It really isn't roasted. You get a huge pan full of veg and cut up pieces of duck and they all fry together. (Kind of like some of the chicken we had at Chicken Palace Stig.) It was damn good.

I had duck soup a few times but it wasn't that special. It wasn't bad but it wasn't something I would go out of my way to eat.

Now I find myself wanting some Ori Ros.


  1. your a fucking pig only like korea food not korea

  2. Well, that's not exactly true, but you wouldn't know that, would you?
    No, I don't believe I ever had this duck while I was in Korea. I had Peking Duck in Peking, and that was amazing.
    My sister cooked a goose one Christmas, but no duck.
    Shame on you Flint, for not introducing me to this.
    But kudos to you for introducing me to just about every other Korean delicacy.
    Duck Soup is one of my favourite Marx Brothers films.

  3. God damn. We never did eat duck together did we? The best place for it in Cheongju was by one of my old apartments in SaceheongDong. It closed before I met you. :(
