My favorite roast duck restaurant in Beijing, Liqun, is a bit tricky to find if you’re a first-time visitor. It’s located in a hutong, or alleyway, and the neighborhood isn’t particularly well-lit at night.
Fortunately, someone came up with the ingenious idea of drawing a series of ducks on the side of a building nearby. So once you get close, all you have do is — literally — “follow the ducks” … and then eat them, of course.

I’ve had the Peking duck in this place. I believe I had to book a reservation 1-2 days in advance. Real hole in the wall type of place, but good food and yes hard to find (even during the day).
That’s part of the appeal for me. Plus, the service is usually pretty good.
Thanks for reading.
