Pre-Order Duck Month
Peking duck is prized for its delicate, crisp skin and is a highly revered dish in China.
Our chef begins by curing the duck in 7-spice, salt and sugar overnight. The duck is then dipped in a blanching liquid of shaoxing wine, honey, salt and 7-spice and hung for 24 hours to dry the skin and concentrate the flavors.
Finally, the duck is roasted for about an hour and flash fried to order. It is served with mandarin pancakes made from flour, water and duck fat along with traditional garnishes: cucumbers, sliced scallions and pickled kumquats.
Chef also prepares a house-made plum sauce with ginger, chili and hoisin to spread on the pancakes and make mini wraps. Finally, enjoy duck fried rice prepared with rendered fat from the main course.Pre-Order Now
