Mouthful Duck is a modern Asian restaurant in the town centre of Ellenbrook with a big open kitchen and friendly wait staff. The menu offers fresh lemon iced tea, which is lovely and refreshing.
Perusing the menu, there are quite a lot of tasty sounding options. Lots of sharing options to start, dumplings, buns, roast meats, and larger plates like pork belly, fillet of beef in black bean sauce, tamarind duck curry and seafood tempura.
We chose one of my favourite starters – prawn toasts. They didn’t disappoint, nice thick bread with a generous serving of prawn on top and a sweet soy dip.
Next came DIY duck pancakes with tender sliced roast duck, apple, spring onions, plum sauce and hoisin. This was an interesting take on Peking duck with apple instead of cucumber, and I loved each mouthful.
For mains we chose crispy skinned barramundi with kailan, rice on a bed of egg white and ginger. The barra was very fresh and nicely cooked and the kailan were in a delicious oyster/soy sauce.
We also had some mee goreng with prawn, chicken, egg and vegetables in a spicy sambal sauce. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture before we had eaten half of it, but it was presented very nicely and tasted lovely – quite spicy – with a very generous helping of prawns and chicken.
Mouthful Duck is a nice experience – the menu is slightly quirky and everything was certainly very tasty. It’s a little on the expensive side, but well worth it for the quality ingredients and generous portions.
