Thanks for the King Fung rec! (long)

After reading about the peking duck at King Fung I had to go during this trip to Boston. It was a great meal and value priced at that! Thank you for all the recommendations - we ended up with the duck, peking ravoli, green onion pancakes, and lamb noodles.

The duck was very tasty. Maybe not the best I have ever had (skin could have been a little crisper) but for $30 and 3 courses it was a great bargain. The skin was gone within 10 minutes of being served. My second favorite course was the soup - the broth was well seasoned and the tofu, veggies, and vermacelli was a great light ending to the meal. The course of duck meat sauteed with veggies was tasty but the sauce was kind of gloppy. Its all about the skin though!

The green onion pancakes were a hit - we had to order more to keep folks from fighting over the last pieces. ;) Definitely a must have. Different from the kind I've had here on the West coast (looks griddled/pan fried) but loved the crispness (KF's looked deep fried).

The peking ravoli were tasty but didn't feel they were that much more special than pot stickers I've had anywhere else and not as good as mom's homemade but then what can compete with that? And the lamb noodles were a little scarce with the lamb but folks loved the chewy noodles and some didn't even realize it was lamb.

All in all a great meal and the waitress was very friendly and helpful considering the large size of our party and the way we inadvertantly kind of took over the restaurant. It does get cold in there, especially for the folks sitting by the door which kept opening and closing to let in folks picking up take-out orders. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Boston looking for the Chinatown experience. Can't believe I spent 4 years at school in Boston without once eating at King Fung. I think I made fans of 10 more Bostonians, sorry if the restaurant is crowded during your next visit, its probably my fault - my friends can't stop talking about it and are already planning the next group dinner there!
