Had two consecutive dinners here and both very satisfactory. First meal started after 9pm due to late arrival, I was famished and asked the waiter for the quickest food to order. He recommended the Beijing-style dough soup and Tianjin steamed buns. The soup was served within five minutes and arrived in a huge bowl - quite enough for three to four people! I applaud the speed at which it was served but would have appreciated if the waiter could warn me of the portion size as it was evident th
The second meal on the following day was much more leisurely and we had a terrine of pig's ears to start with, rather crunchy and tasty, like it very much. The real star was the roast duck, it was fresh out of the wood-fire oven and temperature hot, tasty plus good texture. It must rank very near the top of all the Peking ducks i have tasted. Nothing more to add. To round it off we had a tofu dish with steamed rice but it is no way nearly as impressive as the duck. The meal was accompanied by a bottle of Portuguese red wine from the Duoro - fragrant, slightly tangy in tannin but pleasant enough to drink with the food.
