Take Home Peking Duck Tips

ocumaster | Jan 3, 2010 10:22 PM

Hi everyone, I just read through the archives on the topic and didn't quite find the answer to my question. I've seen lots of peking ducks hanging in the window at many small shops in Chinatown and Inner Richmond. I've always wanted to try one, but I'm a bit intimidated by the task of selecting a shop and ordering in a place that doesn't appear to have english on the menu. I'm hoping there's folks out there with some experience that can share:

When I order one, will they typically carve it for me?

Do they usually come with buns, greens, and sauce or do I need to supply that myself?

Are there things I should look for when window shopping?
