London: Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant

18 Jul

I know it may sound silly to come to London and eat roast duck done Cantonese style. But somewhere in Bayswater and Chinatown lies Four Seasons, which serves one of the best roast ducks I’ve ever had. The supposedly Irish ducks used here are very very fleshy, lean and not gamey at all, and comes drenched in this sweet sauce that goes well with rice. After trying this, I really don’t fancy the kind of “powdery” ducks we get in Singapore. And the absolute highlight for me definitely has to be the flavourful skin. Delish.

I’ve tried some of their other dishes which are a-okay, though the beef brisket was more memorable. But if it’s just the duck you’re after, or if you’re on a tight budget you can just have it with rice at a relatively affordable price in London at £5.50.

Don’t expect much service, and it could get a little oily to the end. But if you like goose at Yung Kee in Hong Kong, you should definitely give this a try.

Price $-$$ / Location: 12 Gerrard St & 84 Queensway
