Beijing 2007 Pt II – I Must Be Quackers!

After about an hours wait I finally got my first taste of Peking Duck (well it had to be done didn’t it?!) at Beijing DaDong Roast Duck Restaurant near my hostel. It was really delicious and I ordered a feast of food (totalling just over 12 pounds) using up 20% of my whole Beijing budget in all. As well as half a roast duck and a Yan Jing beer I also ordered mustard duck webs, sayed duck wings and sauteed duck breast in a crispy yam basket and it was probably enough for two or three people!

The following day I took early lunch at the snack street in Wangfujing and on the menu this time for me was smelly tofu, lamb kebabs and a cicada or grasshopper or something like that which despite all the talk was quite alright. Just like crunchy small shrimp to be honest.

I returned to Wangfujing in the evening but this time to visit Donghuamen Night Market for pretty much more of the same but on a bigger scale. A few more lamb kebabs weresampled as were banana fritters, crickets and snake!
