CLARK – Pampanga gets a taste of Chinese gastronomy with the opening of Wu Xing at the Clark Marriott hotel in the Hann Resorts complex.

Originally conceptualized as a Cantonese restaurant, Clark Marriott general manager Goeran Soelter lobbied for a full-fledged Beijing duck restaurant with multi-award-winning Chinese chef Raymond Yeung at the helm. of the restaurant.

“Traditional Chinese cuisine has developed through nearly 500 years of Chinese history. At Wu Xing, we follow the Beijing style of preparing and cooking our Peking duck using specialized equipment from Clark Marriott,” Yeung said.

Yeung’s Peking Duck is marinated and roasted in a traditional Beijing oven using star apple firewood to bring out the flavors and aroma of the duck. The duck is deliciously rich with the trademark crispy skin. The basic option is to prepare it in three ways.

The duck is first sliced ​​at the table for diners to admire the glistening fat and enjoy the satisfying crunch as the chef slices the skin to prepare it in rolls with Hoisin and cucumbers.

The duck is then taken out to be diced and made into a garnish for the lettuce. These are larger, meatier pieces than ground duck makes elsewhere, making for a meatier bite. Romaine is also used instead of iceberg lettuce, making it easier to hold and eat.

What is left of the duck is then fried and served as a separate dish. Duck bones can be made into soup as an option.

Although the duck is the star of Wu Xing’s star, it alone is not enough to make a real Chinese lauriat.
