Sustainable eating has arrived in Birmingham and new eco-friendly noodle restaurant Lucky Duck is the latest restaurant to dish it up to the hungry masses in its most popularly palatable form. Opening late February, its cute Jewellery Quarter digs have already been overwhelmed by the aforementioned hordes, not only due to its super savvy ethical focus we suspect, but rather its natty little noodle and bao bun menu with distinctly lip-smacking authenticity. The selective menu features a limited but clever choice of delicious dishes including a Duck, Pak Choi and Spring Onion ramen-style noodle broth (£9) and Sticky Pork Belly and Apple buns (£4), also managing to include options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners. All ingredients are freshly and ethically-sourced, with the restaurant pledging to support local businesses including several of their artist friends. It’s BYOB for now, but fairtrade drinks/good coffee is available and with sustainability at the top of the takeout drinks menu too, we suggest you dig out the flasks; brownie points and potential discounts are on offer for the well-prepared.
Tue- Thu 12pm – 3pm & 5pm – 9pm, Fri 12pm-3pm & 5pm – 10pm, Sat 5pm – 10pm, 21 Caroline Street, Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, B3 1UE. www.luckyduckbirmingham.co.uk
