GOEDUCK

I'm looking for a good chinese (cantonese) restaurant that serves goeduck, besides Koi Palace. I'd prefer to have it cooked rather than eating it sashimi style. Anywhere in the bay area. Thanks.

    Haven;t been in awhile, but I've seen them in the tanks at Asia Pearl in the Pacific East Mall in Richmond.

          Don't feel bad. It's pronounced "gooey duck" in any event, so your spelling makes more sense than the "correct" spelling, which was probably a bad transcription of the Indian name, something like "gueduq"

          I've seen it sporadically in the tank at Ocean on Clement St. at around 8

            If you are lucky enough to get hot pot at Koi (it seems that they kind of sort of offer it) you'll probably get geoduck to cook yourself; at least it always came with the hot pot at Willie Ng's previous establishment.

                Try South Sea Village on 15th and Irving. You can order the geoduck cooked two ways. The meat inside the shell is used to make a soup, while the siphon or trunk can be stir fried with garlic and chives or quickly blanched and served with a soy based dipping sauce.

                  Bay Fung Tong Seafood Tea House serves it at around $20.00 per pound. You can specify how you want it made. The normally will do it 2 ways for you, deep friend and sashimi.Or just have it mixed with some snap peas...

                  Of course, fresh from the tank. I've seen it 3 out of 4 times I been there. Call ahead to see if they have it.
