"Peking Lettuce" is derived from the frac2bunt of "I'm taking the piss!" Like all good English it can have a variety of meanings dependant on context and/or intent.

Peking Lettuce can be thought of as a salad whose primary ingredients are lettuce and urine.

"Can we stop so I can make some Peking Lettuce please?"
Means the person has a requirement to urinate. This may be in the context of a long journey through the countryside where there are not any public toilets.

The term can be used to indicate the making of a joke of a situation or person. "Please excuse me, I spoke with a mouthful of Peking Lettuce."

As it is also potentially a food stuff it can, but less frequently, be used to indicate hunger.
