TRAIL ITINERARY

A Peking Duck Feast in Beijing

18:00 - 21:00

Your guide and driver will pick you up from your centrally-located hotel in Beijing and guide you in comfort to one of the best restaurants, proudly serving crispy, roasted Peking Duck according to time-honoured recipes. When looking back at the history of this royal dish, a roasted duck has been on the menu for centuries, starting during the time, emperors ruled the country. Imperial court menus from the 14th century proudly displayed this dish as it was associated with status and elegance. The name Peking was added at a later stage, during the Ming Dynasty, once this tasteful meal entered local restaurants in the current capital. Records have shown that the first restaurant offering Peking Duck dates back form the early 15th century and are still operational up until today.

As soon as you reach the restaurant, you are welcomed by the restaurant staff, who will guide you over to your table. Using ancient cooking and roasting techniques and only selecting the finest ducks, specially bred to reach your table, a delectable evening awaits. The waiters/waitresses are more than eager to show you how to properly eat Peking Duck; the meat is eaten with scallion, cucumber and sweet bean sauce with pancakes rolled around the fillings, often garnished with pickled radish and various sauces. One drink (soft drink or local beer) is included during your meal.

The evening ends with a comfortable transfer back to your hotel where you will arrive at around 9 pm after enjoying a great evening out with delicious food.
