In Beijing, the way they prepare Peking duck is not the way most of us have had Peking duck. The skin isn’t wrapped in a big, soft, fluffy white bun. It is instead wrapped in a thin, yeasty pancake. So what’s the best place for truly Beijing-style Peking duck? Chowhounds agree: It’s Great China Restaurant. The duck comes with thin pancakes, and it’s really, really, really good, says Kitchen Imp.
elainew concurs that Great China has the best Peking duck in the Bay Area. When her relatives come to town, they always ask to go there. They once had three whole ducks for 10 people—they just couldn’t stop eating the stuff.
