Duck de Chine, Beijing

Duck de Chine. Our complements to the chef at this fabulous upscale Beijing duck establishment. Everything was perfect from top to bottom. We entered without reservations and were politely ushered to the bar to wait over drinks. When our table was ready we were escorted by a waitress with a headset (very efficient) to the dining area which was nicely designed in intimate bourdeau colors.

The Beijing Roasted Duck was perfect. Carved in front of our table it was lean, crisp and delicious. Beijing duck is served with an accompaniment of cucumbers, spring onions and plum sauce. These ingredients are rolled inside the thin steamed flour pancakes and eaten.

The restaurant serves its plum sauce with a swirl of sesame sauce, peanut sauce and ground peanuts, which enriches the whole experience.

We also ordered a side dish of green herb salad with cashews and candied walnuts which we liked very much.
