Kunming - Peking roast duck may be the country's most famous duck dish, but people from Yunnan province always say the best ducks come from Yiliang county in the province.

The unique fragrance and tender meat of Yiliang duck is by no means inferior to its Beijing counterparts, says Lan Xuecheng, a 53-year-old restaurant owner in Yunnan's provincial capital Kunming.

It is less greasy than the Peking duck, says Lan, whose restaurants are known for Yiliang roast duck.
