The Da Ya Li Roast Duck Restaurant, which integrates Chinese royal imperial food and Beijing marketplace dishes, has deeply absorbed the essence of Chinese food culture. With more than two decades of experience in the catering market, it opens a new restaurant in Chengdu to promote the Beijing food culture and upgrade the brand image.
