Chilli Duck, Back Bay, Boston

We have eaten at Chilli Duck at least dozen times as takeout by now and agree that they have consistent Thai dishes. We have sampled the mango duck, tofu triangles, golden bags and, tom yum soup, mango fried rice and pad see ew. Each item has been delicious and reasonably priced.

We ordered wonton soup for $4.50. The thinly wrapped ground shrimp, ground, chicken and vegetables was just okay because they were lacking flavor and the wonton wrapper was gummy in texture. The clear broth, topped with scallions and cilantro had the right amount of spice, but it was missing something essential. We think the wonton soup at Thai Basil is much better.

We also enjoyed the Spicy Basil Thai Fried Rice $9.95 and the Pad Thai Noodle for $9.95.

The Spicy Basil Chicken Fried Rice had bits of scrambled egg, assorted vegetables such as carrots, sprouts, sugar snap peas, zucchini and broccoli, basil leaves and a hot basil chili sauce. The rice was well cooked, flavorful and spicy, the chicken was very tender and the vegetables were cooked, but had a nice crisp texture. We would definitely order this again.

The stir fried pad thai noodles had a light sweetness and nuttiness from the peanuts. The bits of egg, bean sprouts and scallions were topped with ground peanuts. The flavor combination was fantastic, a bit of salty and sweet.

The Malaysian fried rice had a hint of spice, snap peas, baby corn, carrots, a fried egg and had chunks of lightly fried chicken. We would definitely order this again.
