The Peking duck is a must-try, with its crispy skin and succulent meat served with traditional accompaniments – pancakes, cucumber, and scallions. Vegetarian and vegan options are also available, making Ch?o Cháo a great option for diners with dietary restrictions. One fact to point out is that the food at this eatery is so good that we actually doubled up, and did both lunch and dinner, and would even have gone back for round three to try even more dishes!
