Hong Kong Peking Duck - But not the whole duck?
When I visited HK last year, my vegetarian wife humored me and joined me to watch me eat some Peking Duck. What turned into a problem was the fact that the restaurant we went to only served it as a whole duck. It was great going down as I ate about a half a duck, and we took the leftovers back to the minibar fridge in our hotel.
It was not so great coming back up, as the experience turned into a binge and purge situation later that day. I guess it was richer with the skin and fat than the mere quantity suggested.
I've only ever seen restaurants offering the quacker as a whole bird. We're returning to HK next month, and I was wondering if there's any restaurants that offer worthwhile Peking Duck in "serving portions" rather than all or nothing.
No luck. Peking duck is almost always served as the whole duck. An alternative might be visiting a buffet at a hotel that serves Peking duck. I went to the Intercontinental dinner buffet, and they served Peking duck. They carved the duck and served two pieces each time. So, that may be an alternative option.
