The Duck Truck
When Ed Farrell opened The Duck Truck in The Grafton at the end of last year it brought the Bury St Edmunds native back to his roots. Born and raised in the Suffolk town Ed has fond memories of childhood trips to The Grafton, and when he was given the opportunity to open the second outlet of his Duck Truck brand in the centre’s new Food Court he didn’t hesitate.
Ed founded The Duck Truck seven years ago as the result of a lifelong love of duck. His first pet was a duck (called Quackers), he has worked on a duck farm and is yet to tire of eating duck most days. Inspired by the street food scene in the USA, The Duck Truck is the first duck-specialist business of its kind in the UK and began life on the festival circuit before Ed opened his first permanent pitch in London’s Spitalfields Market. He opened his third outlet in February this year at London’s Kings Cross.
Operating from a super-stylish airstream food truck, the Duck Truck offers visitors to The Grafton a casual dining experience. Customers will find a small but delicious menu offering their flagship and bestselling crispy duck wrap complete with hoisin sauce alongside mouth-watering duck fat chips. And if duck isn’t your thing there’s still plenty to choose from, including a buttermilk chicken burger, a halloumi wrap and a vegan burger. You can enjoy a meal and a drink for around £12 or pick up a quick and tasty lunch for under £10.
The team has quickly settled into its new Cambridge home and urge everyone to come and give them, and the Grafton Food Court, a try. Working alongside other Food Court members to create a casual, community dining experience, Ed believes The Grafton has lots to offer to fellow foodies that may just surprise you. So, what are you waiting for?
