Beijing duck pizza

IMG_5595

One of the most famous dishes to come out of China is Beijing duck. It’s no surprise then that this iconic dish has served as inspiration for various other dishes. One of those is a Beijing duck pizza that was recently on sale at Pizza Hut here in Lanzhou. It’s topped with roasted duck, cucumber and hoisin sauce, just like the original.

Unfortunately I found the duck a bit limp and tasteless. It also misses the crispy skin that Beijing duck is so famous for. The other negative was that there wasn’t enough hoisin sauce on there to give it that tang and sweetness it needs. The parts with the sauce though tasted pretty good, and the cucumber gave the dish a nice crunch. All in all not bad, but I still prefer the original.

    What caught my eye is that you had this at a Pizza Hut. When I travel internationally I always feel that I see way more Pizza Huts and Kentucky Friend Chicken restaurants outside of the United States than in the United States.

      Yes, Yum Brand bought in big in China. When I arrived in Lanzhou four years ago there was only KFC and Pizza Hut. More recently McDonalds, Starbucks, Burger King and Subways have been added here, but Yum Brands still rank one.
