Duck Fat Fries with Duck Confit and Raspberry Mustard

Now, we clearly didn’t come to Beer Belly for garden salads and lemon water but GOOD GOD, we overdid it on the fattening fare at this cute, trendy Koreatown gastropub.

For my birthday meal, I obviously chose to eschew good health. As well as heart disease prevention.


I’ve had duck fat fries before that just tasted like plain ‘ole fries. Not the case here!

They tasted like Duck! (Howard, perhaps?)

Rich, flavorful and the raspberry mustard nicely cut through the fat.

The maple syrup also did a fine job of cutting through the cheese and carbiness of the sandwich, who would have thunk??

The sweetness of the apples really complimented the brussels sprouts.

The meatballs were unique but we had already gone overboard with food items in need of being cut through, so we had plenty of leftovers.

This place gets crowded pretty quick. Come early if you hate waiting, sharing tables with strangers…and the presence of other humans, in general.

And then promptly see your primary care physician the following morning for a refill of Lipitor.
