Peking Duck

I am looking for truly authentic (and delicious of course) full peking duck presentation. I have been to Phoenix and a few other places (Phoenix being the best so far) but I know there is a gem out there just waiting to be discovered. Any thoughts?

    1. As noted below, Sun Wah serves Peking Duck/Beijing Duck but it is recommended that you call at least a day in advance.

      I was just there about a month ago. The full duck, with bao, soup, duck fried rice and sorbet was $28. Total. There were 4 of us and we ordered a side of bok choy and garlic ribs as well. With a few beers and tea the total bill came out to be around $60 and we walked away with leftovers.

      I wouldn't call Sun wah a hidden gem, but I would call it one of the best deals in the City *and* one of the best meals that I had this year.
