Whenever I make it to Hanoi and the bustling Old Quarter, one of my fave places to eat is at Don Duck!
Located in the northern end of the Old Quarter, I first discovered this little gem after a quick Google map search when staying nearby. The sheer volume of good reviews convinced me to give it a try, and after three visits, I have to say, those reviews are fully justified!
If you love your duck, this is a great place to try, with full roasted ducks to enjoy, as well as a Pho-like duck soup, and amazing duck spring rolls.
Owner Kiem is keen to please and will sit and talk with customers to ensure all is well, as well as explain all about how he buys and cooks his duck dishes. He is attentive and aims to please. In my opinion, he pleases, and quite rightly justifies himself as a bit of a legend!
Not the cheapest meals in town, but this great duck restaurant is surely one to add to the Hanoi checklist. Sit downstairs at street level to enjoy the passing Hanoi traffic, or head upstairs for a quiet, air-conditioned meal, the choice is yours.
