Beijing Duck by London's Alan Yau of Hakkasan Fame
Alan Yau of London Michelin-starred Hakkasan and more recently Yauatcha fame consulted on this Beijing outfit. Beijing native chef Li Dong heads the team here and draws you in with local and regional Chinese dishes. I've had duck roasted and smoked many ways, but here it's done with jujube (red date) wood for a new twist. The duck hits the spot; in fact it's probably worth coming just for this dish. The rice flour pancakes are soft, thin, and fluffy. The chef also spices things up with a honey-lemon condiment; sample all the condiments, which come in cute little silver gourd dishes. Don't miss the delicious homemade hoisin sauce: It perfectly complements the acidity and sweetness of spring onions, melon, and cucumbers.
