Taco No. 62: What does the cook say? Quack!

Taco No. 62: What does the cook say? Quack!

In Spanish, they call it "pato." Surely not to be confused with "pata," which once got me a steaming bowl of cow's feet soup. The word means duck, and if you can find it in a taco, you're definitely onto something. 

This fabulous fowl is a staple on the menu at Elliott's On Congress, where they take pulled duck breasts and smother them with a housemade buttermilk ranch dressing mixed with both pickled and fresh jalapeños. These aren't spicy tacos by any means though; they're creamy and light, with a fresh hit of pico de gallo. With meat like this, you wanna showcase it ... 

Weird fact: For a sports bar, these guys sure have a lot of duck dishes. Aside from the pato tacos, they also do duck egg rolls, duck sliders, a duck club and a barbecue duck sandwich with pepperjack cheese.
