Gave this place another shot, since we live basically next door. What a pleasant surprise... We got the Peking Duck 3-ways, and it was fantastic. Fragrant, crisp skin with only the slightest bit of fat left, meat separated into sizeable pile, complete with bao, sauce and green onion spears. Then a dish of stirfried bean sprouts + duck meat, which were excellent. And finally a duck soup, chockful of tofu, Napa and vermicelli. For $42, maybe a little pricey, but a very worthy rendition of a personal fave.

We also had a steamed fish fillet in ginger / scallion that was suberbly executed along with other dishes that were fine but not as notable.

on a totally unrelated note, the Cara Cara oranges this year are to die for. Juicy, with just the right balance of tart / sweet and that unique flavor . I've been getting htem at the farmer's market in MV.
