Looking for recommendations for the best Peking Duck in the Twin Cities.
Thanks

    Princess Garden in St Paul was the best I had ever had. The whole duck was presented at the table before being carved in the kitchen. The skin was not served separately, but the duck was tender/juicy and the skin was crispy with a nice amount of fat still under the skin. I am sure there's better out there, but old habits... Then the owners changed and I *heard* it went downhill. I haven't been back since the change. but if I don't get a good recommendation soon I am planning on a trip back there.

    I am surprised that there are so few posts on peking duck.

      Didn't someone post something about having lived in China for a number of years and having eaten Peking Duck numerous times and never having it served the way mentioned here - first course with skin only, etc.?

          Is it traditional style? (carved at the table, first course is skin only--no meat on it at all)

          I'm on the lookout for traditional-style peking duck. Can't get it were I am anymore, so I'm hoping to get some my next time in MSP!

            I was going to say Ping's but it has been forever since I have been there. Good to know.
