If you want to eat peking roasted duck in Taipei, locally recommended is “Wan Xiang duck”.
Unlike the methods to prepare peking duck, “close oven style”, the crisp skin and the fat and meat is separated, the “open oven style” is more common in Taiwan.
Carved roast duck with the“open oven style” includes skin and meat, besides, duck skin in “Wan Xiang”, the glossy and caramel colour with a bit of caramel flavor is my favorite.
They also provide pancake, spring onion, onion and sweet bean sauce, you can use them make a duck roll.
The remaining duck will be stir-fried with basil, garlic, spring onion and sauce.
For NT$50 more dollars, they will add some cabbage when stir-fried duck. It’s another flavor.
