Located in the hidden courtyard at the back of Pacific Plaza in Sanlitun. Duck De Chine is one of the new Peking Duck restaurant which opened up in Beijing. Ken, Bianca and I ate there after attending a birthday drinking session.
The area where the restaurant is located is quite nice and 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. It’s a good place to impress your friends and enjoy Beijing’s famous duck.
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.
What did we order? 1 Duck with fill-ins (extra), sweet and sour pork, fried dumplings, Chinese green vegetables, a can of coke and a glass of tea.
Cost per person: 110 each for the menu above including the 10% service charge. Pricey but almost at par with Da Dong Roast Duck. You pay for the ambiance and food coz it’s really much better than Da Dong.
Address: Courtyard 4, Gongti Beilu, Chaoyang District, Beijing (北京市朝阳区工体北路4号院)
