BEIJING -- (Marketwire) -- 12/26/12 -- It would be impossible to visit Beijing without sampling the city's most famous meal but with so many options, where should one go for Peking duck? Thankfully, Lunar 8 at the Fairmont Beijing hotel has ended the search with its duck to end all ducks.
Named Beijing's best Peking duck in 2010 by Travel & Leisure magazine, Lunar 8's chef follows a closely-guarded recipe when preparing this dish. Blending the principles of traditional Chinese medicine with time-honored cooking techniques, Lunar 8's Peking duck is the result of years of training. After being roasted over aged jujube wood and being dressed with a blend of herbs and spices, Lunar 8 serves its Peking duck with traditional crêpes and homemade condiments.
In addition to the famed Peking duck, our Beijing restaurant's new menu features a delectable mix of popular Chinese delicacies, including hand-pulled noodles, flaming barbecue, delicate dim sum and spectacular wok dishes -- which are all made to order.
"The new menu features classic recipes and the best of traditional Chinese cooking enhanced with innovative techniques, and an emphasis on flavors, aroma, freshness and presentation," says Reto Borer, Fairmont Beijing's Director of Food and Beverage.
Set to be the venue of choice for discerning diners, the Beijing restaurant's new private dining rooms allow guests to enjoy the city's best Peking duck in well-appointed privacy. Available in various sizes, the inviting spaces are both intimate and sophisticated, featuring textured wallpapers in soothing hues, buttercream-colored carpeting, decorative wood and glass panels, custom-designed chandeliers and polished wood furniture, as well as full-length glass windows, which allow copious amounts of natural light and stunning garden views.
