Westerns Laundry is an organic seafood restaurant, and it focuses on “advocating for regenerative producers”. The dish in question was the stuffed duck neck, served with turnips and lentils as mentioned in its new menu. All of the bird’s beak and eyes were intact as can be seen in the photo, unlike the usual duck dishes.
The restaurant revealed that the idea behind the dish was to use every part of the animal in the cooking process. “We love to honor the lives of the animals we cook with by using all of their parts. Too much waste is created in our industry by buying valuable cuts and throwing the rest of the animal out,” the caption read. publication.
Twitter users were shocked to read the strange duck neck dish. Some said it was actually delicious while others didn’t want to eat a bite of it. “Yum” said one user while another said: “A Gascon favorite.” Another disagreed, “No, that’s too much,” in the comments section of the post.
