Peking Duck?

nleow | Jan 19, 2008 05:52 PM

I had Peking duck at Chau Chow last night and was disappointed. While the duck itself was crispy and flavoursome, I was disappointed when they brought the "pancakes" out. I am not sure what the custom here is, but I am used to really thin, moist pancakes which are steamed. Instead, I got the fluffy bread (reminiscent of char siu bao) which detracted from the overall taste of the duck, sauce and spring onion.

Additionally, there was only a single course. I have found that when I have had Peking duck in the past, that the second course would either be the duck meat with fried handmade noodles, or sang choy bao. No such luck this time!!

Can anyone recommend somewhere else in Chinatown that would have more authentic Peking duck?
