Peking Duck?

Where do you suggest going in Philly for Peking Duck? Does it need to be ordered in advance? Thank you!

  1. Sang Kee has always been my favorite for Peking Duck. Everytime I've been there, it has been available.

    Anywhere in Chinatown for the most part will have peking duck on hand.....

      Sang Kee Peking Duck regardless of location always comes out from the kitchen barely tepid. Thus good but not temp hot enough for me. Hunan in Ardmore when out is warm, bit more expensive but warm.

        Does either place bring the whole duck out from the kitchen, present it and then carve and serve it up table-side?

          Not when l had it. Rarely get the second dish, that of shreds of meat stir fried with vegetables either.

    2. We just had the peking duck from Sang Kee on Sunday, it was excellent as always.

        Can you tell us how it is served at Sang Kee? Thank you!

          I'm not sure if you can order the duck whole or not, you might want to call to ask. We get it in two courses, the first course is the duck meat and skin on one plate with another plate of scallions, sauce and the pancake roll things (not sure what they're called). Then the second course is the duck meat with green beans.

            Thank you. My husband loves Peking duck and I'd like to make plans to take him there. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
