My Chinese friend Tammy took a few of us to the courtyard of Ritan Park’s Xi He Ya Ju for Easter dinner (and my last night in Beijing), which included golden, crispy Peking Duck. Afterwards, we enjoyed duck soup, made with the duck’s body parts and soft tofu.
In addition to the onion-skin thin pancakes in the center, fixins included cumber, carrot, sugar, plum sauce, scallion, raspberry sauce. I couldn’t resist including below the Bugs Bunnies I visited earlier in the day at Zhongshan Park, where I went to see the weekly bustle of parents of single sons and daughters negotiating matches for their children.
