We went to Celestial Restaurant in Taipei for lunch today, a restaurant specializing in Peking Duck and recommended by several Taiwan guides and Hungry Girl’s Guide to Taipei. We ordered a duck and enjoyed some seafood dumplings to snack on while we waited for our duck.
The dumplings were delicious and we devoured them quickly. When the duck was ready, one of the waitresses brought the duck out for us to see before it was sliced to serve.
The waitress then returned to the kitchen with the duck to slice up for serving. It was served with warm flat pancakes, green onions and hoisin sauce. The waitress assembled one for us so we would know how to eat it, sort of like a burrito. Next the staff brought out the duck soup. It was a tremendous amount of food and all very delicious! Here are a few more pictures.
