What is Pumpkin Duck?

One of Pyeongtaek’s best kept culinary secrets is a dish known as Pumpkin Duck. It is, quite simply, duck that has been cooked inside of a Korean pumpkin. Yes, I know this sounds too simple to be dreamy perfection, but just trust us on this one – you need to try it.

Also, don’t wait until halfway through your time here to give it a try. If you love it as much we do you are going to want to eat here as many times as possible during your stay. We don’t want you to live with regrets.

Pumpkin Duck Restaurants in Pyeongtaek

There are are two restaurants where this dish is best. There are two near Osan Air Base and one opened up closer to Sosabeol. So, it is easier for you to get an opportunity to enjoy this.

Remember, as is Korean dinner tradition, Pumpkin Duck isn’t a meal for one person. Two people or more are needed to make this happen.

The first option, and our favorite, is where the Pumpkin Duck is a second course served after a duck broth Shabu Shabu filled with shaved pork and fresh vegetables. We love this meal because it’s delicious, filling, and affordable. The new location is also romantic, beautiful, and hard to find. Located one a one-lane road behind a local university. If you think you are completely lost, you are most likely headed in the right direction.

If you want to focus only on the Pumpkin Duck, then this is the restaurant you want to try. It’s a bit more expensive and a bit easier to find but just as delicious. The restaurant is also older and has a more traditional feel.
