Chinese Shreded Crispy Duck (UK Style)

As an ex-pat Brit, living in Perth, I have found it impossible to find Chinese Crispy Shredded Duck served in the same manner that we get it in Chinese retaurants in the UK.

UK style has the pancakes, cucumber etc but the duck is served skin on and shredded (normally shredded at your table by your waiter). It has been cooked so it is soo delicious and crispy that having it skin on it no problem.

In Perth when I've ordered duck with pancakes it has been served sliced with the skin on but it is far from crispy and has a big white layer of fat. It came pre wrapped in the pancake which involved unwrapping, cutting the fat off etc. Not the experience I was after.

Does anyone know where I might find Chinese duck served UK style in this manner within the Perth area or even Melbourne?

P.S. When in Melbourne recently I couldn't find any either but I'm going back in September and am willing to try again.

Thank you in advance.
