Peking Duck at Jing Yaa Tang or Country Kitchen
You can’t visit Beijing without having Peking Duck, a dish whose popularity can be traced back to the time of the Yuan Dynasty (1271 to 1368), when the Mongol Emperors ruled China. Today, it’s a staple dish that is served across the city, with a varying degree of prices that reflect the quality of the duck and skill of preparation. For a mid-range budget of about RM250 per duck, we suggest you visit Jing Yaa Tang, which delivers an authentic rendition of the Peking Duck; the skin may be oily for some but it's all about getting the perfect amount of sugar to stick to each sliver. If you’ve got extra change to spare, head out to Country Kitchen where for RM200 you’ll get a duck of the highest quality to go along with the traditional dishes and forgotten delicacies of northern China. Don’t forget to order the soup made from carved-out bird while you’re here.
