Hong Kong Peking Duck - But not the whole duck?

When I visited HK last year, my vegetarian wife humored me and joined me to watch me eat some Peking Duck. What turned into a problem was the fact that the restaurant we went to only served it as a whole duck. It was great going down as I ate about a half a duck, and we took the leftovers back to the minibar fridge in our hotel.

It was not so great coming back up, as the experience turned into a binge and purge situation later that day. I guess it was richer with the skin and fat than the mere quantity suggested.

I've only ever seen restaurants offering the quacker as a whole bird. We're returning to HK next month, and I was wondering if there's any restaurants that offer worthwhile Peking Duck in "serving portions" rather than all or nothing.
