The Golden Duck, Eastland shopping Centre
A foodies' guide to Ringwood
It's the goose that laid the golden duck at Ringwood's recently revamped Eastland complex (channelling its inner Dubai with futuristic $655 million reno) as the China Bar Group opens Golden Duck on the edge of Town Square – also home to Jimmy Grants and Huxtaburger.
Guangzhou-native chefs MenSheng Xiang and Min Chen are in residence with a glossy menu focused on Canto classics – yum cha by day and a Peking duck push at night.
The Golden Duck's interior creates a Hong Kong-luxe vibe.
It's not just any Peking duck: manuka honey, cloves, five-spice and shao hsing wine marinate a lacquered whole duck carved tableside ready for a pancake wrapping – served with bonus duck and prawn-filled dumplings.
