Tonight I finally did it. I returned to Song Kitchen (宋廚菜館) after almost 8 years. The place is legendary among Peking duck lovers, which means the restaurant is always packed full of hungry diners. It is quite possibly the hardest reservation to secure in Taipei. The reservation "system" is open once a month on the first of each month, where diners can call in to reserve a table for a date in the next calendar month. So our table tonight was actually reserved on February 1st, just over a month ago... Now why does this remind me of the reservation system for El Bulli?
The lean meat was also very delicious, fairly succulent and tender. It's good to see how the meat retained its moisture, as a lot of steam was seen rising up from the duck as it was being carved.
