Ottawa Has a New Peking Duck Restaurant and You’ll Think You’re Dining Right in Beijing

A new dining experience has arrived at the Byward Market and you won’t find this type of Chinese food anywhere else in Ottawa. If you’ve always wanted to visit Beijing but can’t go right now, you can visit this new restaurant and feel like you’ve been transported to China.

QuanJuDe Peking Duck is a well-known food brand in China, which has been around since the 19th century. This popular spot has a location in Markham where you can feast on authentic Peking duck and other fine dining, and now they’ve just made their home in Ottawa.

Who wants to eat here has to book in advance both to reserve a table and to eat the restaurant’s traditional duck.

The Peking Duck meals are the main draw at this restaurant, making it something to add to your “must order” list if you go. The way the duck is prepared and served is as much an experience as it is a meal (it’s not fast food to say the least).

An Ottawa-based food blogger, Anny Cao, told Narcity that the chef cuts up the duck right in front of you and serves it right up with some sides. They also have a thin crepe-type wrapper to roll up part of the duck, along with some vegetables and sauce to enjoy.

From the red accents in the interior and the luxurious decor to the way they display the unique dishes and meals on offer, you’ll seriously think you’ve been transported to China. In addition to roast duck, you can find menu items such as braised beef leg, marinated jellyfish, mango stir fried chicken, braised sea cucumber and crispy prawns. Hmm!
