The Lao Beijing Peking Duck (S$33.00 for half portion) was like a mandatory order for me when I visit Lao Beijing, because not many places in Singapore would serve their Peking Ducks in this way. Conventionally, the crispy duck skin would be the highlight of the dish, accompanied by condiments, side vegetables and fresh round sheets of dough wrappers (or Popiah skins); the Lao Beijing way was to introduce precisely-sliced meat with the crispy skin, to allow the diners to taste the tenderness of the duck meat with the skin.

And as much as I liked to wrap everything up before sending them into my mouth, I was having a little trouble with finishing half of this portion, for the greasiness of the duck became gradually overwhelming. Sharing this among 3 or 4 diners should be just nice, not forgetting that there are other items in the menu that could make the meal more balanced in flavours and nutrition.
