Quanjude - Roast Duck Restaurant
Has a long history of 400 years.
One of the most famous restaurants in China.
Favorite Dish: Roast Duck of course. Dark crispy skined duck wrapped in those delicious pancakes with scrumptious containing Hoisin Barbecue sauce
Beijing is famous for its roast duck. And Quan Ju De has a long history with it. The restaurant itself looks typical tranditional Chinese. Diners have the option of picking out their own duck from the raw ones hanging on a hook, and those who know something about ensuring a good meat-to-bones ratio won't miss the opportunity. Duck selected, you can then watch the chefs prepare it in the open kitchen.
Favorite Dish: PEKING ROAST DUCK
Quan Jude Beijing Roast Duck restaurant
Favorite Dish: Beijing Roast Duck dates back to the Ming Dynasty, about 600 years ago. The two famous Beijing Roast Duck restaurants in Beijing are Bianyifang (Shop of Convenience and Pleasure) and Quanjude (Complete Collection of Virtues), both having a history of 400 years. The original Bianyifang was in the Rice Market Hutong while the original Quanjude was in the Meat Market, both in the southern part of the city. Now they both have many branches. Two main branches of the Bianyifang are located at Qianmen (Front Gate) Street and at Chongwenmen, while two of the largest branches of Quanjude are at Hepingmen (Peace Gate) and Wangfujing.
Almost every part of the duck (except the feathers) can be made into hot or cold dishes, (for example, the wings, webs, tongue, heart and liver). This is called the ?°Complete Duck Feast?±. The duck head is cut in half and served on a small plate with the tongue. The head is usually for the guest of honour, but if you cannot face it you do not have to eat it. The bones of the duck are made into soup which is served near the end of the feast.
Quanjude Roast Duck Restaurant (Beijing Wangfujing)
It has a fine building and has eating space on each floor. When we ate on the 4th floor. I was disappointed to know they have only asparagus and blocorry as green vegetables. But we liked their Beijing duck very much for its crisp skin. The chef cut your duck in front of you as the picture. It was fun to see the waitress pour Chinese tea by the pot which nozzle is very long.
Favorite Dish: Beijing Duck.
Historical Beijing restaurant with some great (and different) Chinese Duck dishes!
Got a big group? Get your own room!
Favorite Dish: Hands down, the roasted duck! Melts in your mouth.
It's said to be the NO1 in China. Well, I doubt. Maybe it's too cold when eating at night in winter.
Favorite Dish: Baked duck.
