Peking Cuisine Restaurant

May 12, 2011

February 3, 2011 | Xin nian kuai le!  That’s Chinese for “Happy New Year”! Lunar new year that is.  Honestly, I don’t really know much about the traditions besides the red envelopes but my friends and I decided to go out to Peking Cuisine for a Chinese dinner– seems appropriate, right?

This wasn’t my first time at Peking Cuisine, and it certainly won’t be my last. Like the name suggests, they consistently serve an excellent peking duck! We ordered the duck, which came with a duck soup. We also ordered seafood dumplings, mapo tofu, and a whole fish.

FYI– some places use baos for wrapping the duck, but not here.  They use this thin tortilla– it works.  I can’t say the dumplings were particularly memorable but everything else was great! We way over-ordered and had a bunch of leftovers, haha.  If you’re looking for a good place for peking duck, definitely check this place out.  I would recommend calling ahead (at least a day, though I’ve been able to reserve the duck same day before) to make a reservation for the peking duck.
