Who still makes a credible version of Wor Shu Opp

Gourmet2 Nov 29, 2004 08:30 PM

Wor Shu Opp is still my guilty passion but Cantonese food and this old "wor horse" are out of fashion and it's hard to find it on a menu, let alone find it well made.

However some other long-memoried, discerning chowhound must know where the good stuff is still to be had. Any suggestions ? Thanks

    They definitely have it on the menu at Jade Mountain, on 2nd Avenue around 13th Street, though I have no idea if it's any good.

      Tried it at Jade (albeit several years ago) -- think Duck Jerky :) ...best I've had in the city (though not as good as it used to get) is Cafe Evergreen on 1st and 69th.

        Tried Jade Mountain and their sauce is the best but it is mock duck.

        Tried Canton and the Duck was good but the sauce wasn't right.

        This weekend - I tried Hop Kee and both the duck and the sauce was not good. The duck was not crispy and was full of fat and the sauce was just a brown sauce.

        Still on the hunt for Wor Shu Opp

        omg i LOVE wor shu opp!!! the New Hong Ying on Mott made the BEST wor shu opp... unfortunately they are now closed. my family & i had been going there for over 20 yrs. believe me i was devastated!

        soooo i am now finding that it is close to impossible to even find it. i've been walking thru chinatown looking at menus w/o much success at finding it. :-/

        is it considered "old style cantonese"?

        in any case, if anyone out there can help us track a place down, it would be much appreciated. i haven't had it in 'bout 3-4 yrs now.
