Food on Wheels; Duck in Chaweng

It's time for a contribution of the Food on Wheels series before the month is over, and this I picked; Food on Wheels; Duck in Chaweng.

Duck is very popular with a majority of the Thai population and pick up trucks with a similar set up as can be seen on these pictures drive around the whole country.

On Koh Samui, we had these kind of trucks drive by on a very regular base, but somehow that stopped and the only location that I know of, in this set up, is on the ring road in Chaweng, near the Futsal stadium
On the mainland there are still plenty of 'duck trucks' driving around, I see them on a regular base there.

This particular car can't drive anymore and each day, the owner loads it up with his duck of the day and he starts selling, somewhere late in the afternoon. His customers know where he is and when he's supposed to be open (something you can never be sure of here!) and drive up on (mainly) their bikes to buy the goodies or in this case, the duck.

Food on Wheels; Duck in Chaweng that one tastes good

Part of the experience is the sauce that comes along with the duck. A restaurant chain called MK Restaurants, which can be found all over Thailand, has in my opinion the best duck and sauce, but that's about as good as that restaurant gets.

Food on Wheels; Duck in Chaweng the real deal

Keep your eyes open if in Thailand, sooner or later you will see a 'duck truck' pass by and if you fancy a meal or portion, just flag the car down and he will stop and serve you. Enjoy!
