Atlanta Restaurants Serving Peking Duck and Cantonese Roast Duck Feasts

Where to indulge in succulent roast duck around Atlanta

View as Map

While both dishes may appear similar, there are differences in how Peking duck and Cantonese (or Hong Kong) roast duck are prepared, presented, and consumed. However, both easily feed a small crowd and feel equally indulgent.

Peking duck originates in northern China, specifically Beijing, and was at one point served exclusively to the royal court. Served in courses, the duck is expertly sliced table side by a trained chef with exacting precision and accompanied by julienned cucumbers, scallions, hoisin sauce, and Chinese pancakes or bao buns. The decadent feast often includes a soup course made using the duck’s bones. Cantonese roast duck has more modest origins in southern China, near Hong Kong. This comforting and hearty family meal sees the duck cut into chunks and served with rice, and sometimes vegetables.

Here are a few restaurants around Atlanta offering delectable roast duck feasts.
