[DFW] Who has the best Peking Duck?

I recently tried the Peking Duck at Mr. Wok in Plano, and it was pretty good. However, I am still looking for that perfect dish. The standard to which I judge all others is the Peking Duck at Peking Gourmet Inn in the Wash DC area, and I have not found any match it in DFW. Any suggestions?

  1. Are you looking for the entire buns, hoisin sauce, onion, duck meat removed from the bone Peking duck experience? If so, I'm afraid you'll have to head down I-45 to Sinh Sinh in Houston.

    If you're just looking for solid Chinese roast duck, try First Chinese BBQ.

      From my scouring of my menu collection it looks like Kirin Court, Shanghai and I believe Sing Kee all might have peking duck.

      Kirin Court it is called Roasted Duck served with flour buns and choice of 1 or 2 ways $23.95 for one way, $28.95 for two...prices might have gone up slightly but this menu is recent as of April/May....214-575-8888

      Shanghai has it with pancake and soup for $27.95....recent as of June.....972-239-1400

      Sing Kee I would call but I know they have roasted duck and all....I wouldn't doubt they have peking duck or coudl prepare it for you with notice......972-889-3888.

      I am not sure about Maxims but I bet they would prepare it with notice!

        Yeah, Maxim's serves it, too. I had Peking Duck at NSD (now closed) as a part of their special Chinese NY course earlier this year, but I'm not big on peking duck so not the best judge.

    2. I will also try these places below. I grew up at the Peking Gourmet Inn near DC, and haven't found anything as good out here.

      1. May Dragon in Addison does a Peking Duck Three Ways.

        When I had it a few years back, I remember enjoying it quite a bit, but that was before I was spoiled with more authentic Chinese places. :-)

        As a plus, their decor is pretty nice compared to most other Chinese restaurants around. They also don't use MSG if that's a factor...

        According to their website, it goes for $32.

        1. Although I haven't been there in a long time, I always remembered, Kang's in Irving as having the very best Peking Duck in the DFW area. The original owner has since retired but, his son is at the helm now.

            I believe Kang's Cafe is closed. The phone number is disconnected.


            1. re: kelly2

              Kang's Cafe has been closed for quite a while now. It has since been replaced by Temptations Cuisine which is Himalayan (better IMO). Temptations was also written up in Guidelive

              I think his son is the one who runs Mr. Wok in Plano.

              1. re: kuidaore

                That's correct, Mr. Wok is run by the same family as Kang's.

            3. I agree w/ May Dragon. Peking Duck 3 ways is the traditional way of serving it. It is very nice. I would certainly go ahead and give that try. While you're there you may as well as have the 3 ingredient soup, also very good.

                I stay in Addison two or three times a year. I have had good Peking Duck and other dishes at May Dragon. I like the classy, yet casual atmosphere.
