Opened lately in Wan Chai QRE Plaza, Zither Garden is a Pekineses/Chinese restaurant specialises in making one of the most authentic roasted Peking ducks in town. It is set in a modern and chic environment, with marble walls and an open kitchen showcasing the roast oven and the making of Chinese pastries.

The list of drinks on the menu are plentiful. Such as chinese barley water, sweetcorn juices, homemade sour plum juices and many other fresh fruit juices and special Chinese brewed tea.

For our starters, we have Wuxi fried eel, pork trotters cured meat and drunken chicken. The fried eel is incredibly crunchy with a sweet and tangy sticky sauce, whilst the drunken chicken is very tender with a strong Huadiao wine flavor.

The signature roasted peking duck is exceptionally juicy and crispy, because it is first air-dried, frozen, and then undergoes a second air-dry process before being roasted in the oven. The Chef will carve around 10 pieces of duck skin, and the rest are around 108 pieces of duck meat with skin.

Served with cucumber, leeks, honeydew melon and ordinary sweet bean sauce; they also provide us with a homemade honey plum sauce and caster sugar. The duck skin is so delicious when dipped in caster sugar.

The tossed noodle is also fragrant but a bit too soft for my liking, while the steamed xiao long bao has a relatively thick wrapper. After all, the roasted Peking duck is very remarkable and worthy considering it is just $300HKD for five catty.
