Check out their walls of awards!
As we had made a reservation, we were seated pretty quickly and so didn’t scrutinise the awards. 😛
When walking to our table, we walked by the roasting area:
We liked the ambience of the restaurant, especially because no one was smoking (it was atrocious in Shanghai, people could be seated right beneath the ‘No Smoking’ sign but still smoking! :x)
Our starter of Sauteed Bean Sprout:
We think it’s been sauteed with vinegar because it tasted a little vinegar-ish – took us awhile to get usedto, after which we found it was pretty tasty though.
This is THE duck:
We didn’t film how the duck was sliced, though maybe we should have.
Our table of Peking Duck, condiments and wraps; so little of the Peking Duck is left. Hmmm…
Each person gets a tray of condiments:
We were taught 3 ways to eat Peking Duck:
This is the first way of eating Peking Duck, just the roasted skin with the condiments:
This is the second way (which happens to be the usual way we eat it in Singapore) of eating Peking Duck:
This is the third way, with toasted buns:
Our favourite of the 3!
The Peking duck was really tasty!!
The skin was roasted to crisp but not too dry and still with a thin layer of fats while the meat was juicy.
We were served Duck soup to close the dish – soup was apparently cooked with what was left of our Peking duck.
Our dessert of 冰糖葫芦 (bīng táng hú lu), sugar-coated haws, which we’ve always seen in movies and finally tried for the first time yesterday. 😉
These were slightly nicer in that they were seedless. 😛
Mandarin oranges were served too:
Our bill came up to RMB 418 (SGD 87), of which RMB 268 (SGD 55) was for the Peking Duck…
This was definitely value-for-money, considering the quality of the food plus how satisfied our tums were! 😉
A row of roaster-trainees at the back, learning how to do it and waiting for their turns at roasting:
This Peking Duck we had is the best we have had so far, no regrets for the amount spent (though finances are a little tight on this exchange)! 😀
