Entenhuus is difficult to find, it is located on Alfred Escher Strasse. From the outside it always looks like it has closed up for good, the lack of a website doesn’t help to make that impression go away. Calling ahead to make a reservation showed me otherwise. We decided on Peking duck, which needs to be ordered a least two hours in advance. After sitting down, the duck’s crispy skin gets served together with the pancakes, plum sauce and thinly sliced leeks. I think this is a great dish, also because it is rather simple for an asian dish. The duck skin was excellent but the distinguishing feature was that the pancakes were homemade. The soup with mushrooms was nice and had a special taste which I couldn’t distinguish. The duck was then served in two dishes, one with sprouts the other of the sweet and sour accompanied with fried rice. Rather average chinese fare, nothing really exciting. However I thought the price was fair. 120 CHF for Peking duck for two is a fair price. Compare this to a chinese dinner at Suan Long and you’ll know why.
