Peking duck is a notoriously difficult dish to cook, so it’s no surprise that it’s a bit difficult to find around Boston. But there are still some kitchens committed to the process, and the result is pure poultry bliss — shatteringly crisp and golden-brown skin and tender meat tossed with mixed vegetables. Wrap it all with an airy Chinese pancake, and be happy knowing you’re eating a dish that’s existed in some form for hundreds of years.
Peking duck prices vary from restaurant to restaurant, and some restaurants require diners to call up to 24 hours in advance of ordering the dish — bear that all in mind when deciding where to eat. One duck can generally feed about three or four people (unless otherwise noted below), depending on appetites; plus, there are plenty of other great dishes to order at any of these restaurants in order to stretch the meal more.
Here are five of the best Peking duck options in Boston and how to order.
