Do you have to go to Beijing for Peking Duck?

fryrose | Sep 24, 2006 05:07 PM

Sunday Morning had a short segment on Peking Duck that had my mouth watering. A chowish friend and I have had this dish on our "to do" list for a while. My question is, are there any great places to try this dish in Chicago and what makes it a great dish to you. The Sunday morning segment showed them eating it in 3 waves. First they ate the skin with the fat dipped in sugar and garlic, then they ate slices of meat in a pancake with plum sauce, scallions and cucumber, and then I did not catch exactly how they finished their meal. The Chinese chef that described the dish said it had to be cooked over a wood fire and the host said that it is a dish you need to eat in Beijing. If I can find something that tastes half as good as what they were eating looked like, I think that I will be a happy camper.
