Hungry for something succulent and packed with flavor? Allow me to suggest the exquisite and iconic Jinling Salted Duck (盐水鸭). The earliest records of the dish date back over a thousand years ago to the Six Dynasties (AD 222-589). A keystone of Jinling cuisine, the tender white duck meat is fragrant and moist, with taut skin. The savory dish has been popular with many throughout the years, especially the founding emperor of the Ming dynasty: Zhu Yuanzhang. Legend says there was a dispute over a loud noise in the city, so the emperor issued a decree to kill all the roosters in the land. The people of Nanjing (formerly known as Jinling), had no chickens to eat, so the answer was simple... Ducks! This gave rise to the prominence of duck dishes, salted duck being one of the most exceptional. If you ever find yourself craving it, head to Yunnan Nan Lu food street. You’ll also find boiled chicken, spareribs with rice cakes, Nanxiang steamed bread, and Shandong dumplings. Although personally we recommend the unique salted duck. Let’s keep it between us!
