  1. Ive never had Peking duck here, and I also want to know where is the good place for it too :o).

    Anyway, Ive tried to search from online and ve found some stuff.

    --> Old article in startribune about Peking duck being served at Yummy Chinese Restaurant

    --> Great Wall Chinese Restaurant has Peking duck on the menu.

    --> Reviews of Princess Garden Restaurant on Rice St in St Paul
    I was told by a friend of my friend that Princess Garden Restaurant on Rice St in Saint Paul has very good Peking duck, but when one of my friends went there, she told me that the food there was just okay, but she didnt mention the duck, so i dont know.

    --> Reviews of Grand Shanghai Restaurant in Citysearch about Peking duck,

    --> Yangtze Restaurant with Peking duck on the menu

    I wish I know where is 'the place' too.

      Some friends and we go for Peking Duck at least twice a year at Mandarin Kitchen (87 and Lyndale in Bloomington). We usually get it "3-ways": the awesome roasted duck served in the yummy little "crepes" (the names escapes me now), the soup, and the rest of the duck stir-fried with chives blossoms... I had the luck to experience Peking Duck in 2 different places in Peking (now Beijing), and MK was pretty comparable! You should call 24hs in advance to order it. They also offer it just one way (the crepes) or just 2-ways, too.
