Peking Duck at Fuleen Seafood?

  • 3

I have to order Peking Duck for a banquet and was thinking about Deyi in Flushing--but Fuleen has so many dishes I love, and Manhattan would be easier. Has anyone ever had their Peking Duck? Sometimes Cantonese places do a reasonable job of it--I have good memories of the Nice Restaurant's version.
And which of Fuleen's casseroles are especially good? Anyone ever had the mei cai kou rou there? (Don't know how to say in English, pork belly with preserved mustard greens).

  1. The mei cai rou was one of my favorites at Fuleen. When it was on the lunch special menu I would have it once a month to tone up my system. At some point it was taken off the menu, if it is back get it.

    1. re: wew

      anyone tried the sea bass bean curd casserole at fuleen? i like that dish at cantoon garden but its not on lunch menu

    2. Of the Canotnese places that do it, Fuleen's is among the better ones IMHO. That said, if you're just ordering Peking Duck... might as well go with Peking Duck House or the like. Fuleen's is good... for a Cantonese place. It's something to order with a big family meal if you want something aside from seafood to round it out.

      For their casseroles, I've yet to have a bad one. Anything involving seafood is almost a guaranteed success, though I'd skip on freshwater options like carp, etc. Of the land proteins, the taro & preserved duck is one of my favorites, though you should keep in mind it's mostly taro - the duck is really added to flavor the root veg more than star in the dish. It's more of a side dish casserole (at leat the way Americans eat) than a main dish one. Had the Salted Fish, Chicken and Eggplant recently - good, could have been a bit heavier on the salted fish for my taste, but still quite good. Congee Village, of all places, does that particular dish best IMHO - odd, given that they cater a bit more to American(-ized) palates.

      There's one listed called "steamed pork with cabbage" which MAY be the pork & mustard greens one you're talking about, just mistranslated - but I've never had it so I can't really say. Nothing else on the menu seems similar to that, though. At Congee Village (again) I had something closer - a soup with pork, mustard greens, and preserved egg. Was decent, if you're the sort who likes preserved eggs. Not for everyone...
