Ducking Good Peking Ducks

Best of Beijing's Most Famous Dish

Jing Yaa Tang

Located on The Opposite House’s lower level, Jing Yaa Tang’s Peking duck (¥268) is flavor-packed and surprisingly light, The restaurant’s sexy chef Li Dong is a master at his craft, sending out not only delicious ducks but a whole menu of excellent side dishes at reasonable prices. Our must-try recommendation is the chilled osmanthus tomatoes (¥52), a perfect sidekick for the duck, adding a bit of tangy sweetness that lets you continue ducking on without ever feeling lethargic.

Find it: The Opposite House, 11 Sanlitun Road, 三里屯路11号三里屯太古里, Tel: 6410-5230

Quanjude

 

Beloved by locals, Quanjuede serves up sizzling ducks (¥198) along with a piece of Beijing’s culinary history. One of the oldest Peking duck restaurants, Quanjuede still provides visitors (locals and expats alike) with an authentic Chinese experience. There are no fancy fusion dishes here. Here you’ll find only the classic (and most traditional) way of duck preparation along with an impressive set of tableside knife skills from your chef.

Find it: L2 Shifeng International Building, 19 Yacheng Yili, 2 Dongzhimen Wai Dajie, 雅成一里19号楼世丰国际大厦2层, Tel: 8552-8880

Da Dong

 

Undoubtedly the most well-known duck restaurant amongst foreigners, Da Dong has made a name for itself with their highly praised lean ducks (¥298) and fusion-style cooking. They have locations all over the city, but our favorite is still the one in Jingbao Place with an open central kitchen that’s a treat for the belly and for the eyes. Da Dong’s bilingual menu and extensive wine list is pricey, but also promises you’ll enjoy your dining experience even if you don’t speak a word of Chinese.

Find it: 5/F, Jinbao Place Shopping Mall, 88 Jinbao Jie, 金宝街88号金宝汇购物中心5楼, Tel: 8522-1234
