Lonely Planet review for Bianyifang
Despite having shifted location to a shopping mall that sees few foreign faces, Bianyifang remains a solid duck option. Claiming to be the original Peking duck restaurant – it cites a heritage that dates back to the reign of the Qing emperor Xianfeng – Bianyifang roasts its duck in the mènlú style – in a closed oven, as opposed to a half-open one where the duck hangs to cook – and the meat is nice and tender. A half bird is Y94 with all the trimmings and the menu also offers duck liver, heart and feet dishes. In fact, just about any part of the duck that is edible is available here. Nonsmoking throughout. English menu.
