Duck Duck Goose will be bringing a properly meaty Cantonese menu to Pop Brixton, when it opens its Hong Kong-inspired diner in January.
For starters and nibbles, there'll be takeaway classic Prawn Toast Revisited, which has been given a deeply welcome update by way of prawn mousse, kewpie mayonnaise, curly endive and kohlrabi with bonito flakes. There’ll also be the more traditional turnip cake, served with cep mushrooms and chilli.
Of course, with a name like Duck Duck Goose, it’s no surprise that roast meat will very much take the spotlight, and you’ll be able to choose from an array of juicy delights like char siu pork collar, pork belly with five spice, roast duck and roast goose. You’ll also be able to get a frankly amazing sounding whole steamed sea bass with soy, ginger and spring onion.
For afters, there’ll be Cha Chaan Teng French Toast, served with a condensed milk and soy ice cream. Wash it down with one of the daily cocktails, a tropical juice or a traditional milk tea.
The canteen itself is inspired in part by the BBQ and roasted meat shops of Hong Kong, and lead by Oli Brown, the former chef of Le Cafe Anglais.
Duck Duck Goose will be at Pop Brixton, 49 Station Road, Brixton, SW9 8PQ from January 2017. It’ll be open Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday from 11am - 3.30pm, 5.30-10pm, and until 11pm from Thursday to Saturday. Follow Duck Duck Goose on Twitter @ddglondon.
