I am One Lucky Duck

One Lucky Duck juice and takeaway is Pure Food & Wine‘s to-go counter. Like PF&W, the high-end raw joint, One Lucky Duck is all raw but the focus is on sweet treats, quick juices and snacks. And much like the slew of eateries doing this type of thing (Candle 79/Candle Cafe, Blossom/Cafe Blossom, that Zen Palate on 9th Avenue, etc.), what you lose in ambiance you gain in your wallet. Several of PF&W’s signature dishes, like the zucchini and tomato lasagna, are available at One Lucky Duck for about 5$ cheaper. One Lucky Duck also has sweet nut milks, house-made kombucha, falafel, sushi and some great-sounding salads. My mission, however, was a bit lower brow.

I needed to try their raw Mallomar. Yes, a vegan raw version of them nostalgic chocolate-covered marshmallow cookies. One Lucky Duck’s version was delectable: dark raw chocolate coating atop sweet, soft white heavenly dollop of the same lord knows what in PF&W’s $15 sundae… over a crunchy cookie. Texture and taste work in perfect harmony for a decadent raw dessert. Good show, good show!
