The Overview

Updated on September 9, 2014

The closest mainland China has to a bona-fide celebrity chef, the towering Dong Zhenxiang (Da" means big) took up cooking after his father quipped "with that job, you'll never go hungry." He wasn't wrong. Today, roughly 800 ducks are roasted daily at Dadong's trio of restaurants, which legions of visitors have long declared the best in town.

Flamboyant, brightly-lit dining rooms are rarely less than heaving with locals and out-of-towners dipping amber shards of duck skin in sugar, rolling overstuffed pancakes, or braving more adventurous fare like Dadong's signature thorny sea cucumber. Showy, molecular-style mains and dry-ice desserts have become big draws as Dadong restlessly expands his repertoire, but the nightly queues are still all about the duck.
