looking for Peking Duck near Charlottesville, VA

My boyfriend really wants to find Peking Duck near here. An hour or so in any direction is fine. Any ideas?

  1. Peter Chang's China Grill has a lot of duck dishes and is absolutely the best Chinese in the area. They might have Peking Duck. I know the other place he opened, Taste of China in Albemarle Square definitely has it on the menu.

      Thank you! I thought of Chang's but knew they don't have Peking Duck on the menu, because I've looked. I forgot about TOC. We'll check that out.

    2. If you intend to be down near Richmond, the Full Kee is a Cantonese restaurant that has Peking Duck, however I was encouraged to call ahead for it.

      I can vouch that their roasted duck is good, so i imagine their Peking duck is very good. They have hanging roasted ducks in a window case near the front door, they grab one and take the cleaver to it right before your eyes if you are so inclined. My son was fascinated by this.
