Duck you look so good! Don’t ya? Yeah. Mouth currently salivating…majorly. Workation in Beijing had to include some bomb ass peking duck. A few of us went to Country Kitchen in the beautiful and sleek Rosewood Beijing. I tried out their brunch spot Bistrot B (post coming soon) earlier for lunch and hadn’t been to Country Kitchen yet so I was reallllllly excited. I’ve heard rave reviews.
The restaurant is spacious and modern (current pop music softly plays throughout the restaurant.) As you walk in- you pass by a bar area, open kitchen (with loads of steaming goodies-steaming away) as well as a grand floor to ceiling stone- walled oven to roast the ducks to perfection.
Glistening peking duck awaited us! But more on this lil’ beaut later…..
Hello G&T! Cute plate settings and decor.
We share everything- starting with this spicy and hot mapo tofu! I loveeeeeeee the juicy minced pork mixed in….My mouth was burning up.
I think the ever popular peking duck needs a few pictures…to do it any justice!!!
Look at our whole duck!!!!!! WOW. Just wow.
Crispy, crunchy perfect skin. It was definitely the perfect amount of crunch and fat. I loooooooved this. The meat was juicy and tender. I don’t know how they did it- but it was damnnnnnnnn good.
Guo tie! Fried dumplings. I loved the presentation and the guo tie was delicious.
Grilled lamb skewers. Tender, juicy and succulent.
I love this dish. It’s my go-to veggie dish (yeah, I know…there’s a lot of minced pork in this! But I love me some stir fry greeeeeen beans.)
Kou Shui Ji (口水鸡). Sichuan chicken in chili oil sauce packed a bit of heat and was a nice starter to our meal.
The desserts were delicious! It was a East meets West mix. A lot of Chinese ingredients into this western brownie bite.
Perfect ending!! This light and healthy tofu dessert was floral, sweet and refreshing.
