After a long absence from @parkbenchdeli, I finally found revisitation motivation in the form of their monthly special. October is the month of the Bull Duck Sandwich, which sees a P H A T slice of chili glazed confit duck leg thrust between a pair of soft buns, while dressed with watercress salad & sauerkraut.

The duck wasn’t as tender as I thought it would be, but it wasn’t that much of a challenge to chew through so no harm done. The gochujang aioli was truly inspired, effortlessly hooking up with the chili glaze while adding a deep, sensationally savoury flavour to the burger along with a decent dose of spicy heat.

The sauerkraut played the rule of the fun police (typical German), but its sharp sourness worked well to keep the very heavy gochujang sauce from running absolutely riot. It’s most definitely messy delicious, so leave your decorum & dignity at the door. Hurry up though, cause this fat ducker is only sticking round till the end of October.
