some help please finding peking duck in the Baltimore area..

I recently visited Boston and had amazing peking duck up there in their chinatown area.. Can anyone recommend a restaurant in the Baltimore area that I could get this? I live in northern AA county.. so the closer the better, though I am willing to travel.. thank you..

  1. There are two top o' the mark duck houses in N. Va., Peking Gourmet near Bailey's Crossroads and Duck Chang's in Annandale. Those are my traditional choices when I get the hankering. I don't want a duck that's been hanging under a lamp. I want it right out of the oven, carved and served table-side by a pro.

    As far as Balt., AA and HoCo MD, I don't know of any that specialize in Peking duck. Grace Garden in Odenton has a tea-smoked duck that must be ordered a few days in advance. It's possible they might prepare you a duck Peking-style. Other than that, I would concentrate my search in the Ellicott City area. You might have some luck there.

      "There are two top o' the mark duck houses in N. Va.... "
      Three if you include Mark's Duck House.

        I like Mark's, just not especially for the duck.

    2. Szechuan House on York Road.

      1. I had Peking Duck at Hunan Manor in Columbia

        1. I haven't had the crispy roasted duck from Hunan Taste in Catonsville, but everything else I've eaten from there is pretty authentic and delicious.

            I'm in Arnold. East West has become one of my favorite spots. My wife has ordered the Peking duck a number of times and it is always awfully good. She's nearly stabbed me with a fork protecting the crispy skin.

            Pat Sajak eats there, so how could it be bad?

                Dunno, but there are several newspaper articles featuring him in relation to the restaurant on display.

                For what it's worth I've also been waiting for a pizza at a local pizza hut, when all work stopped because Pat's wife came in to pick up a pie.
