Beijing Kitchen serves the crème de la crème of northern Chinese and Beijing cuisine in a fairly pleasant surroundings, with emphasis on favorite classics like their signature "Old Fashioned Peking Duck".
The restaurant's interior is contemporary, with a fleur of classic Chinese décor, including an impressive display of Chinese teapots at the entrance and an open kitchen which allows you to see how noodles are hand-pulled artistically… The dining area is spacious, with high ceiling and reasonable distance between tables, although the clever use of dark wood panels and brick walls creates a warm and somewhat cozy feeling.
As already mentioned, the "Old Fashioned Peking Duck" seems to be one of the main draws of Beijing Kitchen. It is traditionally-prepared in wood fired oven, using Jujube or Lychee wood, and served in three different dishes: One with the crispy skin, one with the white flash, and one with cuts that have both skin and meat… The true Beijing way of serving.
Other recommended dishes include the Duck liver with plum chutney and sesame pancakes, Wood fire honey-glazed pork, Braised ox-tail with chili and, of course, their handmade noodles.
Prices are slightly high, as you can expect from a five star hotel restaurant, but certainly not outrageous for such a fine dining experience: Expect to pay around MOP 300 – 450 for a nice a-la-carte dinner.
