Hot on the heels of IST Snack Bar and Superfly, another brand new micro-bar has landed on Queen West.

Three Monks and a Duck soft-opened earlier this month and is set to grand open on Thursday, April 25. The micro-bar spans 700-sq-ft and serves an inclusive Asian-inspired menu consisting of vegan, vegetarian, and meat-based dishes.

The menu, created by Chef Mark Lee, emphasizes high-quality ingredients and a 70% plant-based menu with veggie options that can be veganized.

The casual, dine-in space seats 20 people and aims to accommodate guests’ dietary choices wherever possible.

“In this city, it shouldn’t be hard to choose a restaurant to accommodate different dietary needs,” said Executive Chef and Partner Mark Lee, in a press release.

“It’s pretty rare for everyone in a workplace, a group of friends, or even a family to eat the same way. So we created a space where guests’ dietary choices and requirements are taken into consideration. We’re accommodating the duck, so to speak.”

Stand-outs on the menu include oysters, pineapple buns with BBQ pork, green out fried rice and tofu noodles, plus a plethora of cocktails and craft beers.

Three Monks and a Duck, from the same creators as iHalo Krunch, intends on giving back t0 the local community, just as the ice cream shop does. Every month, the eatery and watering hole will donate a portion of its profits to local, not-for-profit organizations that support the needs of children and youth.

So whether you’re one of the three monks, or you’re the duck, you’ll find something to suit your fancy here.
