[ Penang ] What The Duck Restaurant

Been to What The Duck restaurant with BenDan on Friday noon some days ago,
we know the existing of this restaurant but never plan to visit there until we ran out of idea where to have our lunch.
As you can see, we are cutting down the cafe/restaurant hunting these day to save more for our future.
The name What The Duck is surely a catchy and playful one, which easily remember by people.
The restaurant served Asian and Western delights, with duck meat as the main ingredient.
People who don't like duck meat are also welcome here as they do have other dishes that suit your taste!
They did mentioned the preparation time for some dishes on the menu, be patient on that,
after-all: good food need to wait.
Quack Chowder | RM9
Under the soup selection, 3 out of 5 are cook with duck meat, they are really putting effort on this.
Since we are here to have duck feast, rather than choosing the normal soup that can also try at other places, we opt for the Quack Chowder which is also one of the chef recommendation. 
The quack chowder is topped with bread stick and a block of duck meat, finished with a drip of cream and olive oil.
The chowder is very thick and creamy, they are very generous on putting slices of duck meat in the chowder,
you can get to taste it every month you have.
Pot Roast Duck with Red Wine and Mushroom | RM21.90
The way they served every food is very delicate, just like what we will have at fine dining restaurant.
With the affordable price like this, they surely get a big win compare to others.
The pot roast duck is served with greens, mash potato and the mixture of wine and mushroom gravy (I think so).
The duck leg is perfectly cook until the meat is tender, easily cut with a touch of fork and knife;
the duck meat is so soft and juicy at the same time, the portion is just nice to satisfy us.
WTD Duck Confit | RM21.90
One of the chef's signature, the duck confit is served with greens, kumara mash potato and roasted garlic.
The kumara here means sweet potato, this explained the color of mash potato, taste slightly sweeter than normal mash.
This is our first time to have duck confit, it seasoned with a great amount of spices that enhance the taste.
The duck leg is crispy at the outside, and juicy at the inside!
We wish to have more roasted garlic, they taste so good together with the duck confit. 
We were too full to try their dessert, I heard their Sizzling Brownies is awesome as well.
The set lunch menu is available on our visit, inclusive of soup of the day, main course and beverage, absolutely worth it,
but we opt for a-la carte menu that day.
