In Topic: Duck

08 May 2019 - 12:03 AM

I made duck last night for dinner, and had a similar thought. Also, despite employing the google, I haven't received a satisfactory explanation as to why is rare duck is "okay" when rare chicken is well known to be a big no.

Horrible business. I'm also feeling a bit torn that I never tried to brave the line to enter.

 

As far as rebuilding, here's an interesting article about a historian that made a complete laser scan of Notre Dame:

I was a beet hater all my life, because they were the pickled in a can type. And one day in 2004, I was having dinner at a friends, and she roasted beets and topped them with goat cheese. I know that's a combo that's seen everywhere now, but I was transformed. Voyager your beets look amazing, thank you for another way to enjoy.

I know this is late for the OP, but may be helpful to others. My family has a place up the coast from Myrtle, and I went to visit a few weeks ago. We had lunch at a place called Flying Fish Public Market & Grill that was very good. Beautiful space overlooking the intercoastal, a tidy fresh fish counter and a good menu. My Dad declared the crab cakes some of the best he'd ever had, and he's always ordering crab cakes. 

 

One tip- Hoskins in North Myrtle is an institution, and their fried flounder is outstanding. It's a "meat and three" (two?) set up, and other dishes are also good, but that flounder is the thing to order. Be prepared to wait in line on weekends or in summer.
