Best Peking Duck in Baltimore/surrounding areas - no DC, please

Where can I find one that's good each time?

  1. I've never gotten Peking Duck in Baltimore, the three places I'd check out if I had to get it are:

    Oriental Manor in Ellicott City (Route 40 and Route 29--they have pretty good dim sum so my guess is that they'd do a pretty good Peking Duck.

    Jesse Wong's Hong Kong.

    If I had to check in Baltimore City, I'd probably try Ding How as the best Chinese restaurant I've eaten at in the City (not saying a great deal.)

    1. ty atls,
      Right you are; Ding How is passable Chinese, but not great - never had the duck there - I'll check into the other two.

        Jesse Wongs HK has the BEST Peking duck....skin is just perfectly crisp without hint of grease. I get my fix at least one a month :-)

      2. szechuan house lutherville

        1. I'll second that. Szechuan House has been consistently good (if not spectacular) for years.

          1. I'll third Szechuan House. I moved down here from north jersey - so NYC Chinatown is my gauge for quality. Szechuan House is the best I've found in the Balitmore area.

            1. ty all. ill try peking house lthervll

              1. Hunan Manor in the Columbia area has excellent Peking duck. A whole duck comes out to about $25 (more than enough for two people). You can also get a half duck. The skin is crispy and the pancakes are thin! While you're there, the Szechuan hot cucumbers on the appetizer menu is amazing!

                1. Sonny Lee's Hunan Taste in Reisterstown....had it last week!
                  Crisp skin...not greasy....Doesn't have to be ordered ahead of time either

                  1. Thanks everyone! By the way, is Szechuan House in Lutherville related to the same-named place out Randallstown road?

                    Thanks again,
                    Joe (and don't forget to DUCK!!!)

                    1. mmmmm If you can make it down to VA in the Arlington area, you should definitely go to Peking Gourmet. Former and current President George Bush go there frequently, so much so that I believe they have their own tasting menu or something of that sort. It's really good all the time. The skin is crispy and the other dishes they offer aren't bad either.
