Peking Gormet Inn Still Rockin

It's been about eight years since we've been. When we had a duck jones we went to oriental regency which is now closed since the duck came from peking anyway. I had a mean urge yesterday so called peking and got a resevation for 7 pm. It was like We had been there last week. The place was controlled pademoinum, lines out the door, no room to move It was crazy! It was just the two of us so we got lucky and actually sat down at 7. Have to say the duck still rocks, tastes the same as it did eight years ago.Only one old timer still left carving. They now have two hispanic ladies carving as well.Ours said she had been doing it for 5 years! We had a couple of other dishes and they were excellent as well. They are back in our rotation but not on Sat. night !

      Isn't it crazy? I think the duck tastes as good as it did when it first opened and consisted of just the little room to the left as you walk in. Back then, we used to go for duck once a week--always carved by the old man who owned it.

        The garlic sprouts are a MUST ORDER.

          The food there is still pretty high quality. It may not be the best in the area but it is consistently solid. The only problem is dealing with the crowds over the weekend. If you are local, it is a dream on weekdays.

            I was a regular when I lived near there, but haven't been in 5 years. I was just talking about this place yesterday.

            I believe I will have to go now and get my fix.
