Hidden in the heart of Sanlitun, the 1949 Club is a group of restaurants that provide discreet privacy for their guests. Duck de Chine is one of their finest establishments. Enjoy, upon arrival, the original architecture of the restaurant.
Start your evening with a stroll through the art gallery next to the restaurant, which displays works of contemporary Chinese artists. The menu at Duck de Chine is a journey through Chinese cuisine, enhanced with a touch of French. The Peking duck is the dish of honour - Duck de Chine's may be the best in all Beijing. The pumpkin with plums and braised oyster mushrooms are especially popular.
One of its secrets lies in the cooking, done over a fire to make the skin crisp and amber, as well as the spice mix, a secret jealously guarded by the cooks. It is eaten in very thin slices with a thin pancake, accompanied by green onion and plum sauce. It is imperative that you order this dish when booking, as it requires special preparation.
