This is one of the most internationally known dishes of Chinese cuisine. Its origin dates back to the imperial era and, at present, it has become one of the Chinese dishes that arouses most interest in Chinese restaurants in Western countries. It is originally from the capital of China, Beijing, although it is a typical dish of cuisine from all over the northeast of the country.
