Peking duck



  • A renowned Chinese speciality of crisp, marinated and roasted duck, pieces of which are wrapped up in a small pancake with spring onions, strips of cucumber, and a soya-based sauce prior to eating with the fingers. The ducks are specially bred with a meaty breast and an even layer of fat between the skin and the carcass so that the skin separates when roasted and becomes crisp.
