Holy Duck!, a Chinese street food and burger fusion opens in Sydney’s Kensington St, tonight (Friday 9 December).

A menu of hand held items serves up burgers buns and pancakes to grab on the go, including a roast holy duck burger with cucumber and homemade orange Hoisin sauce.
The sides and small plates include popcorn chicken topped with a brown sugar glaze and toasted sesame, lotus root chips with nori powder and Sriracha lemon Kewpie and shoe string fries seasoned with Holy Duck’s signature duck salt.
Holy Duck! is a collaboration between Dr. Stanley Quek and Kaisern Ching, creator of Sydney’s Chefs Gallery.
Kaisern Ching said, “Holy Duck! is modern street food at its best. Our new eatery is for those too cool to cook, too busy to baste and too hipster for haute cuisine. We’ve put a contemporary spin on the menu, dishing up duck and other Chinese favourites in a way that’s going to appeal to a new generation of diners.
“Kensington St is the perfect location for this new concept restaurant. What Dr Quek has done with Kensington St is the turn idea of dining out in Australia on its head and people love it! So for us, it was a no brainer that we would team up with the precinct to introduce a new way of enjoying Chinese,” said Ching.
