so cool you got to visit the Missus homeground...the duck looks wonderful!


Hi Kat - I really enjoyed walking through the hutongs.......I told the Missus that next time we'll need to spend more time exploring.


Kirk: Just a question of curiosity. How much in USD was the whole roasted Peking Duck? Just trying to get an image of the price comparison to what we are used to experiencing.


Hi Alan - This was one of our most expensive dinner (minus the banquets) and was 288 yuan, which included the gai lan. At that time a bit over $40/ us.


Oh peking duck...I surprisingly had a really good version in Taiwan. Didn't think I'd find it there. I haven't really enjoyed the versions I've had in the US. My mouth is watering at the pictures of the crisp duck skin


Man that gai lan looks good. Hands down my favorite veggie.


I didn't realize there were so many variations of roast duck. I've seen a few hanging at the restaurant inside of 99 Ranch market, and thought about trying them but I'm doubting they come anywhere close to this quality.


Hi Kirbie - I'll keep on searching, though.....

Hi Jan - It was very fresh....

Hi Rodzilla - I'm only covering Beijing Duck.....not Chinese Roast Duck which is a totally different, well, not animal, but prepared totally different.


I wish I can have some Peking duck right now with the thin wraps and not the crappy steam buns.


Hi Billy - The dan bing were super thin and very good!
