Self-styled “Demon Chef” Alvin Leung needs no introduction to Hong Kong diners.
Behind three-Michelin-starred Bo Innovation and upscale Bib n Hop Korean restaurants, the epic chef deals with standard Chinese favorites in his latest venture: Forbidden Duck.
Found in distinguished Times Square tower, the Chinese restaurant serves classics Cantonese staples, such as dim sum and char siu (grilled pork), roasted pork, plus duck in myriad ways.
The signatures include standard Peking duck with pancakes and all the accouterments or more contemporary slow-cooked duck.
For the latter, Leung sets the roasted bird with orange-infused bao (steamed buns). The result? Duck sandwiches, best-taken pleasure in when doused in the chef’s homemade sauce.
To take pleasure in the duck dishes, we ‘d recommend calling ahead and securing yourself a half- or the entire portion of the bird, as the dining establishment has restricted servings daily.
