Forbidden Duck

Forbidden Duck is a concept restaurant recently launched by wellknown Hong Kong “Demon Chef” Alvin Leung. As the name suggests, the restaurant specialises in duck, and Peking duck in particular; it also serves dim sum and other Cantonese dishes.
 
A giant duck at the front door greets visitors. The interior is spacious and Forbidden Duck uses an open kitchen, giving a friendly and open feel.
 
Lunch is mainly a dim sum affair. We picked out some favourites, including Barbecue Pork Milk Bun with Crystal Sugar ($48), Pesto Duck Spring Roll ($42), Chicken Feet with Abalone ($78), and a very nice Barbecue Yunnan Black Pig ”Char Siu” ($108).
 
Then came the signature dish, Peking Duck ($468/ whole and $248/ half). The skin was crispy and crunchy, and the meat tender and moist, a must for good Peking Duck. A second dish was prepared from the same bird – Mongolian Style Duck ($80). To round out the meal we also had Seafood Rice in Aromatic Duck Soup ($180) and Lobster and Vermicelli with Black Truffle Har Mi XO ($308) which was quite a treat, before our dessert came.
 
Forbidden Duck is bound to develop an enthusiastic following given its pedigree, so give it a visit before booking becomes difficult.
