I’d read and heard so much about this food truck which also parks itself on Tinakori Road, on Friday nights. Our lovely Sunday morning walk was complemented by a lunch stop at the Harbourside Markets. Geez it was busy. Nudging myself gently through the crowd, I headed (well aimed fast!) towards La Rotisserie du Canard (Canard with a silent‘d’).
We arrived around noon and my mouth was already salivating for the famous roasted potatoes in duck fat. I watched the chef sauté them before my eyes and serve them with a good dollop of garlic aioli. Sadly I had to ask for two forks!
Hubby chose the roasted chicken sandwich in a soft baguette with coleslaw and aioli. Being a duck fan, I was eyeing up the duck truffle soup however I just had to try the duck sandwich. My tummy is not good with gluten, however occasionally it copes ok, so I thought why the heck not!
Sitting in the sun on the Welly waterfront was just wonderful, and chowing down on these South-western, rustic French sandwiches was an added bonus. Sharing the roasted potato chunks was the highlight, as they were so finger/lip smacking’ good.
We were most impressed with the bang for buck for duck – a satisfying, quality lunch for two for $26! Bon appetit.
