LA Chinatown Restaurants Take On Poultry (Turkey, Duck & Chicken)

Chinatown restaurants are offering Chinese-style roasted turkeys, which are carefully steeped in a soy sauce marinade spiked with star anise, two different kinds of vinegar and sweet syrup. The turkey is then roasted, giving way to a crispy on the outside, moist on the inside, sweet and savory turkey. Prepared similarly to traditional Peking roasted duck, the turkeys have a crispy, seared skin and better-preserved juices than oven-roasted turkeys.

Peking Duck is noted for its light and crispy skin as well as flavorful dark meat. The ducks are seasoned beforehand and slowly roasted in a closed or hung oven. The meat comes out crispy on the outside yet tender and moist on the inside.

Another take on the duck is the tea-smoked duck, a quintessential dish of Szechuan cuisine. Tea smoked duck is prepared by smoking a marinated duck over tea leaves and twigs from the camphor plant, giving the duck a unique herby, smoke flavor.

Many Chinese-American families serve their duck or turkey with complementary sides such as sticky rice stuffing, or with rice bun, spring onions and hoisin sauce with their duck. These sides are available at most Chinatown restaurants.
