Peking Duck in SD?

We had perfect fall-off-the-bone, melt-in-your-mouth Peking Duck when we were in Philly a few weeks ago and are craving it again. Any suggestions?

      That Ch post is mostly about roast duck. OP asked about Peking Duck.

      I'm no Peking duck expert, but the one I had 3 years ago at China Max was pretty good. Here's Kirk's report:

      Jasmine sells the whole duck in their take out deli beside the main entrance to Jasmine on Convoy.

          "Fall off the bone" Peking duck? Are you sure that what you had? Peking ducks are usually served skin only. Sometimes the meat in a stir fry and the bones in a soup.

            Golden City has their 2-course Peking Duck, first course is skin, meat, & scallions with "man-toh" to wrap it with. Second course is whatever meat is left on the duck and chopped up (either minced for lettuce wraps or cut up). Price is like $18 although if your second course is minced lettuce wraps, it's $22 or something like that.
