The deal:
Fuck, another review about Peking Duck. After the massive fail of Le Duck Petit (aka Peking Garden, Pacific Place) fail, the aforementioned equally judgmental friend recommend that I try out Old Beijing, where he promised me that I would be able to eat my fill of Peking Duck, instead of staring down a solitary pancake with a side of desperate longing for more. Is Peking Duck the Hong Kong food blog equivalent of pork belly wank? Writing about the delicate crunch as you bite through crispy skin, sinking into pancakes filled with scallions, hoisin sauce and slivers of cucumber? Don’t worry, I’m not going to pepper this post with unnecessary superlatives – just trust me, it’s good shit. It was about HKD200 a head for a couple of entrees, dumplings,’fried lettuce’ (it’s not really like lettuce at all but more like a type of asparagus vegetable which is very delicate and highly recommended, but no one is able to tell me what it is in English or Chinese), some deep fried mutton (A++ would order again – unless I was with people who don’t like food being too ‘sheepy’) and a whole Peking Duck. If I start writing posts which just look like big jumbles of letters, it’s because I’ve gained too much weight in Hong to the Kong and have just resorted to smashing my pudgy digits against a keyboard in a desperate cry for help before I wash myself with a rag on a stick. Old Beijing, putting the KING in Peking Duck. All hail.
