Odd Duck Farm to Trailer is widely recognized for its delectable gourmet dishes prepared with 100% locally sourced ingredients. It is located in a gravel pit with a smattering of picnic tables and a trailer neighbor called Gourdough's. Together, they make the perfect dinner pair.
At night, the glow from the trailers and the strings of lights illuminate the eating area and create a casual, intimate atmosphere with amazingly good food.
|Odd Duck's menu changes daily - everything is good, so just arrive early as food can run out by 9:30 p!|
|The most popular item at Odd Duck has to be their Richardson Farms pork belly sliders with aioli, tomato and arugula|
|Our pork slider was 95% fat, marinated, thick and velvety smooth. Serious pork swoonage.|
|Polenta + roasted broccoli + poached duck egg + fresh grated parmesan cheese|
|Duck eggs are like 80% golden, indulgent yolk. The mild creaminess of the thick yolk contrasted nicely with the tangy but smooth polenta.|
|Beautiful roasted florets.|
|Roasted quail with sweet potato. Some of the best quail I've had (besides my mama's, of course!) - most likely made with a deeply flavorful marinade; the result, a deliciously juicy little bird.|
|For dessert, Gourdough's is a must. The gleaming silver trailer is a clear beacon for decadent desserts.|
|The menu cites many colorfully named doughnuts - all fat and appealing.|
|I got the Funky Monkey with a hot, honkin' doughnut hidden beyond all recognition by a thick, luscious coating of cream cheese icing, grilled bananas and a healthy sprinkling of brown sugar.|
|You might have detected a pattern lately of my ongoing love affair with warm/cooked bananas. I cannot explain this phenomenon other than the fact that grilled bananas with brown sugar is da bomb diggity. For realzies.|
No trip to Austin should be without a visit to this dynamic duo. It is just one of the best food experiences one could have. Seriously. With a complimentary ceiling of stars at that!
Love the Lone Star State - especially our capitol!
