The 143-year-old Quanjude roast duck restaurant in Beijing has closed for six months of renovations, but the oven will stay on. The restaurant ovens have never been extinguished since it first opened in 1864, in which time it has served over 115 million ducks!
"The electric board will stop tracking the ducks, but the stove has been burning for about a century and a half, and the fire will never die out," Jiang Junxian, chairman of the board of Quanjude Group Co. Ltd. said in an interview with Xinhua on Tuesday.

He said the restaurant will keep embers burning in an ancient cooking vessel that will be kept on-site during the renovations. According to Jiang, special staff will be assigned to add fuel each day to keep the fires burning.

...When I first read that, I thought, "whaat? I know there are dog and cat restaurants, but I didn't know there were restaurants that served customers that are ducks too!"

Sorry. Just had to mention that. :P
