全聚徳 outside
There are many famous Chinese restaurants from mainland China which opened branches in Tokyo over the last 10 years. When you go to Beijing a must meal is Peking Duck and the most famous restaurant in Beijing also has 2 locations in Tokyo as well. That restaurant is ZENSHUTOKU in Shinjuku and Ginza.

全聚徳 duck whole
Zenshutoku in Beijing has been used by the Chinese government to entertain VIP's visiting China including former American presidents like Nixon, Bush and many other politicians.

PEKING DUCK is a roasted duck and the chef will bring out the duck and carve it right in front of your table.

and the other half will only have the skin carved off.

全聚徳 duck soup
After the meat and skin is carved off, it will be brought back to the kitchen and they will make duck soup out of whatever was remaining.

With the carved duck on your table, waiter or waitress will wrap the duck for you in a thin pancake with spring onions and sweet sauce called Hosin sauce or Tenmenjan in Japanese.

And you just eat it using your fingers. Unless you don't like duck or a vegetarian, I have never met a person who didn't enjoy this.

To be honest besides Peking Duck, the other dishes aren't special especially the expensive ones, but its the best Peking Duck you can have in all of Tokyo. The Peking Duck tastes exactly like the one in Beijing so you are getting the real deal, not a Japanese arranged version. If its your first time here I recommend for you to order a full Peking Duck course menu or if you are familiar with Chinese food, skip the course and order Peking Duck with other dishes you will enjoy from the menu. Zenshutoku is actually the Japanese way of reading Kanji or Chinese characters and the correct way to pronounce their real name in Chinese is QUANJUDE. So, if you plan to eat at their original location at Beijing in the near future, make sure you book Quanjude, not Zenshutoku since there will be no restaurant called Zenshutou.
