Peking Garden (Specialty: DUCK!)

Thanks to my friends I was able to discover this restaurant.  We started talking about how delicious Peking Duck is.  My friends said that there's a restaurant here that is as good as the ones found in China.  This intrigued me and I wanted to try it for myself.  My friends definitely have good taste. ;)

This Chinese restaurant is turning into one of my favorites.  They have something other Chinese restaurants can't compare with.  It is their famous Peking Duck.  I've tried both of their branches in Greenbelt 4 & in Trinoma. The Makati branch is usually crowded even on a weeknight, try to make a reservation if you can to prevent disappointment. :D

When you order your Peking Duck, you'll be asked if you want your duck served one way (just the slices) or two ways (the rest of the duck is cooked to your specification).  We usually have it two ways so none of the duck meat is wasted.

Interior in Makati branch

Crowded even on a weeknight. This is on a Tuesday to be exact.

Nice chandelier

Xiao Long Bao
This is a small steamed dumpling with soup inside.  Be careful it's really hot when it comes to your table.  Many tongues have been scalded by this delicious dish, including mine. hahaha :D 

Ginger Sauce for the Xiao Long Bao

Vegetables with mushroom

Seafood Noodles

Sizzling Beef with Onions

Sizzlling Beancurd with Shredded Pork & Vegetables

Hot Prawn Salad

The most anticipated dish. PEKING DUCK!
The duck is prepared by your table side.  The server will fill a platter with slices of the duck meat with skin and the other platter with just the skin. 

Just the skin

Duck slices

Pancake wrap & cucumber with onion

Peking duck sauce

Put your duck meat or skin or both then add a cucumber/onion or both again . Finally add some sauce to your pile. :D

All wrapped up.  Tada!  Ready to eat!!

The rest of the duck is cooked as minced meat with some vegetables
Another delightful way to enjoy your duck.

Lettuce Wrap

Put the minced meat in the lettuce then add some sauce.  Yummy!

It's good to know if we start to have a craving for Peking Duck there's a restaurant here that can satisfy it. 

Remember: Eat Live and Be Happy!

Price Range: P500 - P1000

* Whole duck will cost you P2300++

Here's a tip:  If you are eating as a small group & can't finish a whole duck, try to inform the captain that you would like to order half of the Peking Duck.  The captain will try to find another table who is also willing to order half.  This way you get to have your duck & within the budget.  Try to go there early so the captain can be on the look out for other tables trying to order half of the Peking Duck.  But remember the restaurant can't always accommodate this request.
