When it comes to representing Beijing¡¯s culinary tradition, no dish surpasses the Beijing Roast Duck. And most Chinese consider the time-honored Dadong Roast Duck Restaurant among the best roast duck restaurants in Beijing.
Their ducks are crispy but not greasy, and there is very little fat between the meat and the skin. The store¡¯s signature dish, the Full-flavored Duck priced at RMB 158, is a big hit for regulars and first-time customers alike. Of course, another factor that separates the quality of Peking Ducks is the sweet dipping Sauce. Dadong excels in this area, with one of the most savory sauces around.
