Pacifica Cafe's eight treasure duck - Gaithersburg

hamster | Dec 1, 2011 07:21 PM

My friend is apparently a regular at this place in Gaithersburg, and I was surprised since I've never seen it mentioned on chowhound. This place was packed with families on Sunday night.

She ordered ahead for the special steamed eight treasure duck. It was quite a presentation, wrapped in lotus leaves, stuffed with sticky rice flavored with chestnuts, Chinese sausage, mostly a sweet deliciousness. This thing is huge so you better come with a large group. We also had orders of soup dumplings which were semi-respectable (tasty but lacking in soup), cold smoked tilapia, addictive soy beans and tofu with mustard greens, and a fairly flavorless squash and tofu puff dish.

A fun outing.
