Doping-free roast ducks guaranteed in famous Beijing restaurant
If you like your roast duck doped, do not ask for one at the Quanjude restaurant in Beijing this summer. Having been founded in 1864, Quanjude restaurant has a longstanding culinary heritage and is famous for its specialty Peking Roast Duck. Quanjude’s chefs have vowed to make sure that the roast ducks they serve during the Olympics are doping-free and 100% safe, so that that the Olympic athletes can enjoy the renowned Peking specialty too.
A manager of the century-old chain restaurant said the famed dish will go through three rounds of examinations, including the anti-doping test, before being served on dining tables in the Olympic Village.
The cooked dish should meet the set physics and chemistry targets concerning protein, fat and mineral content, and will be tested for micro-organisms such as colon bacillus.
I wonder if the expense of offering such “closely inspected” meals adds to the $42 billion cost of this summer’s Olympic Games.
