Not sure if anyone remember reading my last review about another Macau Restaurant, where I ate a real Wood Roasted Peking Duck, aka real Peking style ~ which according to my knowledge, is not really possible to find in Hong Kong (but Roast Goose you can find.. but still rare!). Back then I wasn't sure if it was the only restaurant that makes it like that, hence the question mark but in fact I found out a couple of months ago that there was another one in WYNN'S CASINO.

Not sure if anyone remember reading my last review about another Macau Restaurant, where I ate a real Wood Roasted Peking Duck, aka real Peking style ~ which according to my knowledge, is not really possible to find in Hong Kong (but Roast Goose you can find.. but still rare!). Back then I wasn't sure if it was the only restaurant that makes it like that, hence the question mark but in fact I found out a couple of months ago that there was another one in WYNN'S CASINO. So in June 2010 I finally booked a Dinner session to try their version here.

**************************************
CRAB CONGEE -
Not bad. Some good flavours from the crab penetrated into the congee base.

PLAIN CONGEE -
This was a bit thickened up artificially and seemed to carry MSG as a base taste.

APPLEWOOD ROASTED PEKING DUCK -
Very disappointing. Don't bother. There is absolutely no applewood roasting taste. no duck aroma. And guess what? Not a piece of skin on this duck was crisp!
It's also substantially smaller than Beijing Kitchen version, which is cut up using a more Artisanal Beijing Way aka the top restaurants in Beijing does nowadays (using 3 Ways). Here its more of the older way where all parts of the duck are sliced with a bit of skin intact on the meat.

Even the mandarin crepes here are doughy, hard. The duck meat is dry and tasteless. Absolutely horrible Peking Duck.

*********************
WHAT'S THE POINT OF IMPORTING IN THE APPLEWOOD FROM CANADA, WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN ROAST THE DUCK RIGHT? AND THIS COSTED US LIKE $320 OR SO..
THE SERVICE WAS EQUALLY UNFRIENDLY FROM MOST STAFF MEMBERS, ESPECIALLY THE SENIOR MEMBERS.

DON'T BOTHER. GO STRAIGHT TO BEIJING KITCHEN IN HYATT HOTEL INSTEAD FOR YOUR DUCK, ITS BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN HONG KONG!

FOR CONGEE OR A QUICK MEAL, MAY BE ... (?)
Applewood Roasting Oven. So What?
