It was one of those I'm so out of it Sundays up until The Rice Den.

I thought it was a nice touch.
|Red Duck Curry- $16|
Creamy red curry cooked with kaffir limes leaves,
juicy lychees, and tender roasted duck.
|The duck was hiding underneath the mound of veg.|
The one and only non-carb item was the Red Duck Curry that was recommended by the waiter over lamb chops and deep fried crocodile. The curry is just at the brim of being flavorful enough, it wasn't as powerful as I was expecting it to be which turned out to be disappointing. The duck is cut into manageable pieces and all the bones were disregarded. The vegetable that came with it however was crisp and well done; I particularly liked the bamboo shoots. The element of lychee was really great proving as a sweet contrast to the heavily bodied dish.
|Fried Ice Cream- $6|
Specially prepared ice cream that is crumbed and fried
|The coating was the perfect thickness.|
