Beijing duck – yum

Preparing the Beijing duck

On Wednesday evening, John and I went with Mark and Yi Ling to a Beijing (Peking) Duck restaurant in Wuxi’s Canal Park area. The restaurant was really busy, unsurprising really because the food was delicious.

As well as the whole roast duck we ordered some vegetables and sour soup which were pretty good, but the duck was the star. The whole roasted duck is brought to your table by a chef who carves it for you. And, yes, it is served with pancakes, spring onion and plum sauce. It was a bit pricey (£7 per head including drinks), but well worth it.

We are off to Beijing in January, so it will be interesting to see how authentic the Wuxi restaurant is.
