Happy Birthday Maya!
It was Maya’s birthday last May 15 and she treated us for drinks at Aria. Lots of people and free-flowing drinks. Maya look beautiful and glowing. Marco and her were joking to each other that they’ll have babies together. It was a fun night but my stomach overruled my plan to stay.
So, I stayed till 830pm and left with Ken & Bianca. They both introduced me to Duck De Chine. This restaurant is located in the hidden city at the back of Pacific Plaza in Sanlitun. The surroundings is quite nice and would be perfect for a garden wedding. It has a homey feel and serenity that is hard to find in a bustling city like Beijing. The ambiance inside the restaurant is one of elegance and quiet beauty. Brown bricks, red lamps, champagnes in cabinets and black cloth tables. This would be the duck place I’ll bring my visiting friends.
As for the food, it was superb and perfect! A gong sound accompanied the start of the duck cutting. They have several fill-ins to put along with your duck which wasn’t oily and was cooked just right. The sweet and sour pork reminds me of my mom’s cooking. The only downside is the rice we ordered never came out.
Price.. a bit pricey but almost at par with Da Dong Roast Duck. There’s an additional 10% service charge on top of your bill. Hmm.. I just wonder if that will be a standard in Beijing soon. When I ate at Chef Too last Sunday, they also charged 10% on top of the bill.
Well.. I need to go back to work. I would just like to share my experience eating in that restaurant. Try the place coz it’s worth it!
