“Dà jiā hăo” 大家好!

Peking roast duck is an ancient dish dating back to Mongolian invaders.  Although those raiders may have invented the dish while they roamed across China, the imperial kitchens of the Ming Dynasty refined it during the 1600s into the type of dish served in restaurants today.

The Huffington Post ranked Peking duck as one of “10 Foods Around The World To Try Before You Die”.  As I won’t be making a pilgrimage to Beijing any time soon, I figured the next best thing is a Food Explorers Expedition to a Chinese restaurant that serves this imperial favourite.

When:  Sunday, October 20th, 2019, from 1200 – 1500 hours

Where:  Restaurant Yangtse, Steubenstraße 46, 68163 Mannheim

What:  The Peking duck served at Yangtse is roasted using the hung oven method developed by “Quánjùdé” (全聚德), a restaurant founded in 1864 during the Qing Dynasty.

Our Peking Duck experience begins with a bowl of flavour-packed “Duck Bone Broth“, served hot.  Up next is “Peking Salad” – a fresh green salad tossed with slices of duck meat, in a slightly spicy dressing.

When the roast duck is ready, it will be brought out into the dining room on a large platter by a knife-wielding chef.  The chef will then proceed to carve the whole duck in front of you.  Watch closely as the skilled carving takes only minutes.  The crispy skin tastes divine on its own, and the corresponding juicy slivers of breast meat will be served with steamed pancakes, sweet hoisin sauce, julienned spring onions and cucumber batons so that you can create your own “Peking Duck Pancakes” (tip: use your hands to roll them).

The rest of the duck will be served as “Duck Stir-Fry with Vegetables”, accompanied by “Fried Rice.”  We will conclude our meal according to Chinese tradition – by having some “Seasonal Fresh Fruits.”
