February's Best Bite
Roasted duckling from Phensri Thai Restaurant.
Phensri is my favorite spot in Lee County for authentic Thai cuisine, with friendly service to boot. This plump duckling is roasted at two temperatures, creating a skillful balance between the perfect crispy skin and oh-so-tender meat. Pineapple, tomato and whole cashew nuts simmer in the red curry sauce's tangy mild heat. Sweet, sour and a hint of sharpness accentuate the dish's beautiful simplicity. 4085 Hancock Bridge Parkway in Orange Grove Plaza, North Fort Myers. 599-4639, phensri-thai-restaurant.com.
