If you just want Peking Duck own its own and not part of a set dinner, Yu Ki at 49th & Elliot has pretty good duck. It's a small local place through. Started as a BBQ shop, then expanded to a small restaurant. They only have 1-2 big tables.

$35? gets you the standard wrap dish plus the lettuce wrap dish. Call ahead to reserve a duck as they do sell out all the time.

Are there any places that do it beijing style? Carved in front of you and the skin has some meat attached to it rather just skin (Guangdong Style)?

Don't most places have some meat on it?

When I went to Da Dong in Beijing, they carved the skin out only as you were supposed to eat it on its own. The meat was used for the wraps. That roast duck would be the only reason I visit Beijing again.

On our side of the river, Luxe has a really nice duck. They're good people too.

Back in the day we would go to Pink Pearl, but now we tend to hit up Pelican when we're in Vancouver and feeling ducky.

Honestly, if you're spending that kind of cash on a special dish, just go to Richmond. Kirin, Sun Sui Wah, or even Empire have a pretty damn good duck.

There's a place called "Taste of Chang'an" at the old Stonegrill under Granville Bridge.

The duck is served very similar to what you get in Beijing, except the prices are quite high as well (88 for the duck I think)

Yah I think you're mixing up the 2. Most places here have meat on them, in fact, which place did you eat at that was skin only?

The 2 places I had Peking duck while in Beijing, it was skin only.

More places doing Beijing style rather than the skin only now that I think about it. Changing Chinese demographics.

I'm going to one-up Galactic_Phantom.

I'm looking for a place that not only serves Beijing style Peking Duck, I want them to yelling at me and being rude as if I were in China. Any recommendations? I want a true Chinese experience.

Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but if you want a Chinese restaurant being rude to you, go to any restaurant that cater to mainlanders (Chef Tony, Sea Harbour, Landmark), speak Cantonese and be really polite (please and thank yous) and you'll get servers yelling at you and being rude to you. Want good service, just yell mandarin in a northern accent and be rude as fuck and you'll be worshipped

My go-to used to be Koon Lok until they closed down
It's closer to Canto style BBQ duck.
It was never great. But it was consistently acceptable enough given that the other dishes we liked (milk balls, tofu pork croquettes, pork ribs were all very good).


Thinking Koon Bo would be similar, it sort of was,
but a not-so-great version of what I used to get at Koon Lok.


Red Star had nice skin, but the meat was bland.
Not enough 5 spice,
Not quite on the verge of what I call dry, but it sure as hell wasn't juicy.


also, as for your suggestion with Yu Ki,
Do they actually roast the duck for crispy skin, or aim for a more juicy meat ala BBQ duck?
My guess is they just pull a BBQ duck from the front window.
I've had their duck before the new owner. I wonder if it's had a massive improvement.

I don't run a BBQ shop (it'd be pretty awesome if I did one day).
I'm not expert on this.

I know some of you have BBQ shop experience.

For those in the know, can you please tell me,
Does your average local HK-style BBQ shop actually:
1. Bathe their ducks in a hot bath
2. Coat them with the soy/maltose mixture
3. Leave them to dry overnight to allow for the formation of a pellicle
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pellicle_(cooking)
before roasting?

My suspicion is that most places skip Steps 1 and 3.
And just go straight from raw duck -> paint -> roast?
Maybe?

I suspect this is the reason the skin you see on most BBQ duck is uneven and sorta bleh looking in color.

iunno.
Probably one of those care and attention thingys Vancouverites just don't get used to seeing commonly?

This is what I mean by an even skin color.

and yes, 1st attempt
and yes. Just following youtube instructions.

If I had the coin,
I would go to each and every single local restaurant that claims to serve Peking duck and rate them all.

- Skin texture
- Skin color (how red)
- Skin darkness (how much soy was used)
- Skin eveness (un-browned spots? burnts spots?)
- Skin flavor
- Skin fat rendering
- Meat juiciness
- Meat flavor
- Meat amount attached to skin
- Crepe texture
- Crepe thickness
- Do the crepes stick together
- Condiments (length and thickness of each)
- 2nd course options (lettuce wrap, stir fry)
- 3rd course options (soup, congee?)
- Cost


Oh well.
Maybe one day.

Ok, Culverin. How about a suggestion / recommendation on where to go for Peking Duck, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Vancouver, and authentic rude Mainland Chinese style? C'mon man.

I don't really eat out much anymore.
I'm actually here to get suggestions from you guys.
Hoping my list above of judging criteria helps you to give us (aka me) a more detailed analysis. hahaha

Yeah, Kirin is on my list.
I heard the Richmond Red Star is better than Vancouver location?

My family's go-to Chinese food is Jade.
My grandparents are usually very nice to the staff there, so my experience with their service is probably very skewed.
The food there is impeccable.
I've had their squab and their stuffed duck.
Their chicken is superb as well. All amazing and consistent.
Their kitchen staff is very skilled.

Peking duck from Jade is very high on my list.
