Buried away in east Qiánmén, the approach to this compact courtyard restaurant is through a maze of crumbling hútòng that have somehow survived total demolition; look for the signs pointing the way. If that doesn’t inspire confidence, reassure yourself with the thought that the delectable duck on offer here is so in demand that it’s essential to call ahead to reserve both a bird and a table (otherwise, turn up off-peak and be prepared to wait an hour). Inside, it’s a little tatty (no prizes for the toilets) and chaotic, but walk by the ovens with their rows of ducks on hooks, squeeze past the scurrying, harried waiters and then sit back and enjoy some of the finest duck in town.
