Li Qun Roast Duck Restaurant (Lìqún kǎoyādiàn)

Li Qun Roast Duck Restaurant (Lìqún kǎoyādiàn) Review

Juicy, whole ducks roasting over fragrant pear wood greet you upon entering this simple courtyard restaurant in a ramshackle hutong neighborhood. This family-run affair, far from the crowds and commercialism of Quanjude, remains a popular choice for the city's signature dish. The spot is a bit tricky to find: It's about a five-minute walk east from Qianmen Donglu, and you may have to stop to ask for directions until you start seeing duck graffiti and arrows pointing the way. Sure, the restrooms and dining room are a bit shabby, but it's hosted everyone from Al Gore to Anthony Bourdain.
