ABC Wednesday:P for Peking/Beijing Duck
When I was growing up, Beijing used to be known as Peking.
Peking duck is a roasted duck, Slivers of thinly slice duck breast meat is skillfully cut and eaten in a little wrap with strips of cucumber and spring onion. I find this a wasteful way of eating duck. I like to gnaw on the bones.
This was taken in Singapore. The restaurant was called fortunate. I told my host, no wonder they make a fortune. They charge you for a whole duck, and give you a few slivers.
