Ji Rong

Ji Rong is currently my go-to choice for peking duck, over the likes of Beijing Duck House and Duck House. Like the other restaurants mentioned, Ji Rong specializes in various Northern Chinese cuisines, though it doesn’t really do any of them too well – the dishes are somewhat hit-or-miss (try to stick to the regional dishes rather than the lunch specials, etc.). When we went for lunch last month, the place was packed with locals, as usual. Because they’re usually pretty busy, you have to call in to reserve the duck. Regarding the duck, the skin is crispy and has the excess fat removed, while the rest of the duck meat is shredded and served with pancakes, tian mian jiang, scallion, cucumber – the usual. The duck meat is a bit bland, but combining all the ingredients into a duck burrito is just delicious. So go if you have a peking duck craving, or let me know if there’s a better place, because I’ve been continuously searching…
