korean food / seoul / 5 best places to eat “Peking duck”, a food loved by top chefs – 2610

The head teacher, a retired chef, cooks for his three daughters every Sunday. Catch a living duck, groom it, and blow wind through its mouth to make it tight. Light a wood fire in the drum, apply the sauce several times to the duck, and grill it to the fullest. Cut the well-roasted duck into thin slices and place it on the table where the three daughters are sitting with a happy expression. This is a scene from the movie “Food Man and Woman” directed by Ian. A jubu who loves his daughters makes the best dish he can think of, “Peking duck.”

Peking duck (Peking duck), which can only be eaten after a full day of cooking with care, was the best food enjoyed by the emperors and the best foodies of the time in China because the skin was crispy and the lean meat was moist. In China, Peking ducks are called “Peking Khao Ya.” “Khao” in Khaoya means the act of grilling, and “ya” means duck.

Peking duck was a favorite dish eaten by people in Nanjing (Nanjing) other than Beijing (Beijing), but when the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) moved the capital from Nanjing to Beijing, the name of the food also changed to Peking duck. During the Ming dynasty, they only enjoyed wood-fired grilling, so they didn't eat burnt shells. The current recipe for applying seasoning and grilling the skin to a crispy crust was developed during the Qing Dynasty (1616—1912), and began when local chefs in Shandong (Shandong) applied sauce to prevent the skin from burning. Peking duck became the best dish of the time when Empress Seo, famous as the greatest foodie, enjoyed eating it.

It takes more than a day to cook Peking duck. Peeled and trimmed ducks blow wind into the duck's snout to separate the layers between the flesh and skin. After that, apply a seasoning mixed with starch syrup, vinegar, etc., and hang it on the wall for about a day to dry. Then, cook the duck meat for about 1 hour on a wood-burning fire at about 200℃. The point is to close the lid so that the smoke flavor comes out well. For the flavor of firewood, firewood from fruit trees such as pears and jujube trees is mainly used.

The well-cooked Peking duck is reddish and shiny. The skin is crispy and the inside is soft and moist. A tasty way to eat it is to place the skin of a sliced Peking duck on a round millet jar, add green onions and cucumber, and dip it in a special sauce (chunjang with sugar, etc.). “Jeon Chui Deok ()”, which opened on Tiananmen Street in 1864, is a representative restaurant for Peking ducks. Other famous places include Dadong, Chun Yi Fang, and Tsuji Minpu. The skin is crispy and the inside is moist, the best food in China!

Executive Chef Ku Chung Fei offers authentic Cantonese style cuisine based on local recipes. The signature menu is “Peking duck,” which shows off strong visuals at the entrance of the store. The dark brown exterior of the duck, cooked in a specialized oven from China, enhances the taste. The first thing about Peking ducks that are dismantled right in front of your eyes is to make a millet roll from a sample and place it on a plate. Peking ducks cut to be easy to eat meet in a soft rice crackers will fill your mouth with a savory flavor. There is also a course menu where you can enjoy Peking duck and a variety of Chinese dishes together.

'The Round Samsung Store' is a modern Chinese restaurant run by CEO Kim Jong-suk, who successfully led 'Inning' and 'JS Garden'. The interior of the store, which is properly arranged with wooden furniture and fabric sofas, creates a casual atmosphere. The signature dish is “Peking duck,” where duck meat is grilled in an oven with the fat side removed. The contrast between the crunchy skin and the melt-in-your-mouth lean meat stands out. You can eat a combination of Peking duck, cucumber, green onions, and sauce in warm rice crackers to suit your taste. You can get a glimpse of how milkweed is served in two batches so that it can be eaten warm until the end. Course meals, where you can find a variety of popular menus at reasonable prices, are also popular.

The meat itself is delicious, so it's delicious even if you just eat the meat without any other condiments!

“Grand Hyatt Jeju China House” is a place where you can enjoy all of the four major delicacies of China, from Shanghai to Sichuan, Guangdong, and Beijing. The kitchen, which has an open kitchen, raises expectations before meals because you can watch the process of making food. The signature menu “Peking duck” is cooked using traditional roasting methods for about 1 hour by putting duck and jujube trees in an oven. In an oven that maintains a constant temperature, the aroma of oil and firewood seeps softly into the duck meat, creating a rich flavor. Peking duck, which is prepared by the chef himself, has a different texture and taste for each part, such as skin, breast, and leg meat. I also like the “Peking Duck Set,” which consists of Peking duck, duck bone soup, steamed fish, fried pork, mara shangguo, tantan noodles, and dessert.

I went on a family trip and ate a Peking duck set, and I was satisfied with both the taste and quantity. I was a little disappointed if I only ate Peking duck, but it was nice that the set came with all the other foods. ^^

“Palette de Shin” draws attention with its interior decorated with red wallpaper and furniture, based on the glamorous Shanghai of the 1930s. In collaboration with the famous Hong Kong restaurant “Mott32”, Mott32's signature menus such as Honey Sauce Chashu Barbecue and Quail Egg Truffle Shaomai will also be presented. The signature menu is a 42-day-old duck that is baked in an oven after removing subcutaneous fat with hot air. Peking duck, which has been carefully prepared to eat, boasts an addictive flavor with a savory flavor that bursts out as you chew. Dishes such as spicy stir-fried chicken using Peking duck, fried rice, lettuce wraps, and vegetable soup noodles are also delicious.

5. 'Imperial Treasure' in Yeongjongdo, Incheon, a food that has captivated the world

“Imperial Treasure” is a Chinese fine dining restaurant that started in Singapore and is now established around the world. The interior, touched by American HBA, a global interior design company, emphasized the exotic yet luxurious feel. The signature menu, “Roasted Peking Duck,” is a recipe from the imperial era, and is characterized by maximizing the crispy texture of the duck skin and the moist juiciness of the inside. At first, I recommend dipping the slightly glossy peel in sugar to fully enjoy its natural flavor. Afterwards, you can enjoy the rich flavor and texture of the lean meat by adding vegetables and sauce to the rice crackers. After eating Peking duck, it's a great way to finish off the meal with a “leftover duck dish,” which makes soup, stir-fries, fried rice, and tempura from leftover meat.

â–²Location: 186 Yeongjonghaeannam-ro 321beon-gil, Jung-gu, Incheon

â–²Price: Grilled Peking duck 160,000 won, leftover duck dish 50,000 won

â–²Review (Shikigami 95): It was a place that received 2 Michelin stars! The bowl that holds the Peking duck is also duck-shaped, so it's so cute. As soon as I first ate the skin, my eyes flashed and I understood why Peking ducks are so expensive. Of all the duck dishes I've eaten so far, I'll never forget it.
