Peking Duck: Can I Ask For the Carcass?

Humbucker | Oct 13, 200606:45 PM     14

A lot of times, it seems like restaurants don't give you all the meat on the duck when you order Peking Duck, just the skin with a little bit of the outer layer of meat attached. Some places use the meat to make additional dishes like a stir fry or soup that is also served to you, but a lot of places don't. At restaurants that don't give you additional duck dishes, can I ask to have the carcass so I can pick at it the next day, or is this frowned upon? My reasoning is that if I pay for Peking duck, I should be able to have the whole duck. I've had Peking duck many times where they just take the rest of the duck away after carving and I never see it again even though I could see there was still plenty of meat that could be extracted from the bird.
