I’m probably one of the last foodies from Austin to try Odd Duck. It’s been open since January 2010 and I’ve yet to officially post on it. You can read other reviews here:
I should hide my face in foodie shame right? That’s just me, 6 months late hahaha!
What makes most foodies in town go gah gah over this place? Odd Duck serves LOCAL and SUSTAINABLE food. The menu changes from week to week based on what is is season in town. FUN! They also tend to sell out (especially the veggiw options) every day as well, so get there early! The owner, Bryce Glimore, has worked around town at both Wink and Moonshine. Bryce has a family linage of food and with local food principals it’s no surprise that this venture is a huge success.
Beet salad with goats feta, baby arugula and sweet onion.
I wonder if they slightly pickled the onion on this one. They must have because it had such a mild flavor. This was a refreshing take on a bruschetta type dish. The beets were mild and sweet and the peppery arugula was soothed by the creamy feta. It makes me wish Odd Duck had a set menu so I was able to reorder it!
OH. On a side note, I over heard someone else ordering and Odd Duck will modify orders to your tastes (ie remove meat). Great news for vegetarians, no?
Fellow foodie friend Dining In Austin, aka Mariah. You have to get those food pictures just right…
Grilled zucchini bread with grilled Texas peaches, goat cheese and ribboned zucchini.
One of the best mild desserts I’ve had in Texas. At times, desserts can be too sweet and in-your-face for me. Don’t get me wrong, I nom some triple dark chocolate brownies sometimes but mild sweet is refreshing as well. The balance of the sweet bread, tart, creamy goat cheese and sweet peach was superb. All for $4 too. Yes, may I please have another? Mmkaythanksnow.
