Pinot Duck – A Spin On Peking Duck

No doubt, Peking duck is one of my favourite food on earth. When it comes to the thought of how to consume a whole bird, the opening of Pinot Duck has deliberately turns this Chinese tradition on its head.

Set on the ground floor of Stanley Plaza, Pinot Duck stays true to its name by serving a great selection of Pinot red and whites to pair with small Peking duck-focused dishes in a modern way.

They put peking duck in every shape and form, such as the two favourite classics, peking duck crepe and Chinese steamed duck bao. The former crepe is very thin and texture-wise, wrapped with hoisin sauce, cucumber and duck fat, whereas the bao is phenomenally fluffy and filled with juicy and fatty peking duck.

Moving on is a fresh and light rice paper roll with a delicious combination of mango and duck, served with nouc nam, the Vietnamese fish sauce dip. The brioche toast is also perfect just the way it is topped with peking duck and pinot balsamic reduction, given a pleasant sweetness from the piece of roasted pineapple.

Other light we plump for duck liver pate marinated in Hua Diao wine with toast and kale chips, melon salad with jasmine tea-smoked duck breast.

The wok-tossed Angus beef is succulent, flavored with black truffle and sautéed with mushroom, onions and green asparagus. The duck broth cooked risotto is very pleasant and topped with slow poached egg.

The creme brulee is not to be missed because it is probably the best I have had in Hong Kong. The actual pudding is super silky and burst with the flavor of Chinese citrus zest.

For sure this modern fare is definitely worths checking around Stanley, and whenever you have a Peking duck craving, Pinot Duck got you all!
