Oh no, not the Duck!

April 8, 2013 by betaman   

As I’ve mentioned previously, eating out as a vegetarian can be a challenge. This is especially true when sharing meals family style. Chinese or Thai food offer plenty of vegetarian and seafood options, all quite tasty indeed. But what’s a flexitarian meat lover to do when his meat loving friend orders the delectable duck dish, and everyone is sharing?

I couldn’t help myself, I had to taste the sauce and veggies cooked with the yummy looking, succulent smelling crispy duck pieces. It took all my will power not to scoop up a tiny bit of the duck, just for a taste. Based on the mushroom and onion I did taste, it must have been delicious. And I did enjoy my spicy mussels, veggies in peanut sauce and Pad Thai. But come, we’re talking duck here!

Duck a l’Orange has always been a favorite dish of mine. Chinese Crispy Duck another. The Thai dish my dinner guests never realized I was drooling over would have been a first. It may very well have been my last chance too. My mouth still waters thinking about it. [wipes chin]

Another temptation test passed, just not so easily this time. Next time I dine out with friends, nobody better order rabbit!
