We've had lots of recent requests and suggestions for Northern Chinese dishes. But none have been recommended for Peking Roast Duck. We're looking for the multi-course duck dinner, served with pancakes and sweet bean sauce. Who do you think makes a great version?
I must admit that this has been the bain of my time in SFO. No decent duck! There is absolutely nothing here that comes close to authentic Bei Jing kao ya...I mean as served in Bei Jing! but a Chinese friend from Taiwan did tell me that there was a place in Fremont that was definately in the running. He has gone to Malaysia but I will be speaking with him soon and will pass the name of this restaurant to you.From my experience a good duck banquet should have at least two crucial courses: duckmeat and crispy skin served with pancakes,bean sauce and spring onions; followed by soup made from duck bones and man tou.
