Peaktop - Brief Review

Fwagra | | Mar 23, 2010 08:43 AM

We were 9 at Peaktop on Sunday night.

Oh boy, is this place good. Best Peking Duck I have had, and I have had a lot. (I grew up with it hanging in the laundry room). What made the PD so good: freshly made pancakes, rather than grocery-store springroll wraps. Less fat (but still some) than usual. I don't like eating thick, white layers of duckfat. No, this stuff was extra crispy and good. And, there was a lot of meat too.

But, Peking Duck is just the beginning. Stir-fried pea shoot leaves, for $12 an order; delicious. BBQ'd pork was excellent, and very lean. Every piece a winner: no need to pick through the pile for that special slice! Salt & pepper shrimp were good to very good; nice, fresh shrimp that were not overcooked. We tried the suckling pig, but I just don't think it's my thing: it was porky tasting, if you will. Just not for me.

We loved this place. It was $35 all-in per person, for Peking Duck with all the trimmings. Better duck than Lai Wah Heen, for half the price. Excellent. Go now.
