I have always looked upon Food Choices at Glorietta 4 as one of the better mall food courts because of the selection that it offers. One recent addition to that selection would be a stall that offers roast duck! It’s called Denise and Polly’s The Classic Roast Duck Outlet. They currently offer roast beef, roast duck and roast pork.

Actually, what got my interest first would be the roast beef but on two separate visits, I managed to try both the roast beef and roast duck. Each meal comes with rice and a side dish (corn soup with malunggay, fried bananas or baby potatoes).

On that day when I ordered roast beef, I wanted to avoid rice so I asked if I can exchange rice into another side dish and gladly they allowed it. They also gave me baby potatoes for free. So what can I say about the roast beef? It can easily be sliced by simply your fork and spoon. I’m tempted to say that it is very comparable to the roast beef being offered at hotels but sadly, it had a very salty portion at the edge. But aside from that hiccup, it was great and definitely worth what I paid for it.

I was hesitant in ordering this because of the price but I can’t say no to my curiosity. I would estimate this as 1/8th of a whole duck and given that the price of a whole duck would go for PHP1500 to PHP 2000, I’d say not bad.

First thing I noticed about their duck was the color especially on the skin. It doesn’t have the red-orange color and the duck meat was darker. Also, based on its appearance, it was literally chopped with no presentation whatsoever. I understand that I’m comparing it now to roast duck being served in restaurants which is unfair so let’s move on to taste.

Their roast duck comes in two dips; the default one (which I don’t know the name) and their own home-made plum sauce which I preferred. The duck had a hint of saltiness which the plum sauce countered and for the same reason, I didn’t use the default sauce as it made it saltier. The taste was what you would expect from a roasted duck and the skin; I had hoped that it would have been crunchy!

Overall, I enjoyed their dishes and I hope that they would reduce the saltiness of their dishes. I want to enjoy the dish without having to resort to another dish, dip or water simply to wash away the salty taste.

Till next time,

Allen
