    The lights attract the moths, and Asians and bums and gamblers and anyone over 18 that wants to stay warm under the lights. Well they know who the bums are but they let the Asians in anyway.

    Seventy bucks better be a duck. Yes It was a darn duck. The Gf asked where are feet and the bill. I said, If you want to suck on some feet and get the bill we should be off to the room.

    You got a duck fer sure. But you did not get the dish called "Peking duck". Looks like some sort of roast duck with hoisin sauce maybe. But the dish "Peking duck" is not served like that.

    Peking Duck looks like this:



    The whole point of Peking duck is the skin, which is eaten in pancakes with a sauce and some veggie. To be honest, the preparation of the duck entirely screws the meat.

    For peking duck, they will bring the whole duck to the table, carve off the skin (with a sliver of meat maybe), wrap in pancakes with the additions. The rest of the duck gets taken back to the kitchen. You see it again in some noodles and/or a soup, but it really is not good.

    The duck in your picture is chopped to buggery - destroying the skin. besides which, its the wrong colour skin for peking duck.

    Multiple levels, smoking old ladies and non, just like any other place but it does have an "Old Indian" look and feel to the place. Got to have a hook to spear em in. Seems every time I go I see many Asian people I have known for 20 plus years that are friends of my hand towel. Don't know when to throw in the towel. I gave up long ago. But still have the craps every now and then. Don't you? Sexes then ates, Maybe a game of lyres dice then.

    Years ago, I remember eating Peking duck in a Chinese restaurant in the UK.
    It came on a salver and the waiter 'stripped' it down to the bone with a fork.

    Fookin' delicious but very, very expensive.

    Thais call the duck breed "paking"
    So maybe that's what you mean.
    "Paking" translates as Beijing.
    But "paking" was translated to "Peking" in English.
    So it is a Peking/paking duck by breed, but not a Peking duck in so far as the western dish. Same breed of duck but prepared differently.

    Did I mention I used to Raise Peking Ducks.

    And Multiple brands of chickens BTW. We had some years of 60 plus chickens alone, well I mean the two of us. Fun part was butchering them. Kinda a sick thing that gave me a reason to drink more. Yea, watching her milk and gut them was quite the buzz. They liked her so she had a way of calming each one down as she slit their neck and sent them to bed. None of this chicken with a head chopped off deal. Why waste the blood.

    Sorry, ducks was the topic. I wish I could pull some pics but that was too long ago. They were fun to raise but annoying. If I got up at 4am as soon as I turned on a light they went into a tizzy. Geese are the same but worse. Ask any Pole or German.

    The ducks would tare up the yard and or mostly the pen area. Funny if the saw a hawk or large bird of prey they would in no time waddle back to the pen area as a group.

    Don't have the will or time to play with them now that it's just me and the bird and the bird.

    Funny isn't it.
    As a consumer you avoid the history, but as a proprietor you have to look genocide in the face

    Yes, pay dirt is bloodied by necessity, yet the dirt lies under their feet.

    Ok it's a fishuism. Go Fish for the real meaning.

    And no i'm not trying to be an ass. I just am.

    I have the pics to make a wonderful thread about my adopted pooches trip to the pond.Way better than the scenery in this last post.

    I took my newest favorite shooter with me. A cannon camera.

    Funny to shoot birds with a cannon.

    I usually use a twelve gauge. But have not for about 10 years. Not because their in decline but I just have no need. Gone Vegan,,,not.

    Actually, this similar technique of the mythically royal named "Peking Duck" is used commonly throughout East/SE Asia and differs from style and quality. The only reason that the attachment/reference towards this dish with Peking/Beijing is a royal one......bit of a misnomer regarding a very countryside Chinese technique.

    This style of slow roasting duck can be found of a higher traditional quality in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.

    One can find a Vietnamese version in and around Hanoi [especially the north] that is quite exceptional, as well as a Taipei version which is well renowned.

    Historically, this so called "Peking Duck" is a blue-eyed Gweilo terminology that caught hold centuries ago, as the Chinese refer to it for what it is - without the undertones of a royal and foreign bastardization - 慢烤鸭
