Beijing duck joins Expo menu

BEIJING roast duck, one of the most famous of Chinese dishes, will be on the menu at the Shanghai World Expo, managers of the Quanjude restaurant chain said yesterday.

The first batch of trained chefs, along with serving and equipment maintenance staff from the century-old Quanjude duck restaurant brand, will arrive in Shanghai early this month to prepare for the opening, said Jiang Junxian, board chairman of the China Quanjude (Group) Co Ltd.

Quanjude's genuine equipment will be in place at the restaurant, which will be located on the Expo's Chinese traditional food street.

The duck will be cooked in a traditional style to ensure visitors enjoy the Chinese delicacy at its best during the Expo, which runs from May 1 to October 31, Jiang said.

Traditionally, Beijing duck is roasted over a fruit-wood fire.

The diner then wraps slices of the duck into a thin pancake which also contains a sweet plum sauce and thinly cut spring onion and cucumber.

Chefs will also introduce new dishes, including pyramid-shaped dumplings stuffed with duck meat, duck hamburgers and duck soup.

The Quanjude roast duck became a top favorite among athletes during the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.
