White Duck for the win
Posted by eemilla on February 19, 2015
I enjoyed White Duck in the River Arts District, but their downtown Asheville location has been such a blessing. The service is quick, and the food is cheap and tasty. Our family of three can eat a meal including a beer for my honey for about $30. I enjoy the bahn mi taco as of the two or three vegetarian options it suits me; we tried the black bean for our daughter, but it was too spicy hot for her. They do have quesadillas, but the cost is about the same as a taco so she eats the bahn mi too. My husband enjoys the fish and jerk chicken, and he wasn’t impressed by their duck taco. We’ve eaten there on Black Friday when lines and waits scared us away from plenty of other eateries, and they’ve been the spot before shows with their proximity to Diana Wortham and The Orange Peel. Even when the line is to the door it moves quickly. Their salsa trio with the chips varies wildly in heat and flavor, and their margaritas just aren’t as intoxicating or as tasty or as much of a bargain as The Lucky Otter’s (which frankly could describe plenty of margaritas). I do wish I could tip with my credit card as I don’t carry cash, but I love having a downtown Duck.
