Weekend Food Choices Week 46: Quack

It was my last weekend before training so hubby and i decided we would go out to eat one of my favorite food

I was 1 hour late so you could imagine that we were all pretty hungry when we ordered. Fortunately our steaming hot peking duck was served right away.

Our duck was carved beside our table and i could hardly wait to start wrapping it in thin mandarin pancakes with green onions, cucumber sticks and hoisin sauce.

Hubby and i first tasted Peking Garden‘s peking duck when AST and her hubby DT treated us last year. I absolutely love crunchy duck skin!

We ordered the duck to be cooked in 3 ways. As we were enjoying the duck skin, a waiter came to our table and apologized that he had to take some of the duck meat for the 2nd dish as our carver got too eager and left very little meat on the remaining duck to work with. I thought that was very funny!

The second dish is good tucked in lettuce pockets!

The third dish was deep fried duck bones

Very, very crunchy! Although i thought that it was a little too spicy for me. I could imagine munching on these bones during one of our snack times…

Other dishes on our table:

Stewed Abalone Mushrooms

The velvety textured abalone mushrooms were pretty good…just a little hard to eat with plastic chopsticks as they were very large and they kept slipping *fork please!*

Braised E-fu Noodles with Seafood

E-fu noodles are Chinese egg noodles known for their golden yellow color and chewy consistency. Apparently the consistency is due to soda water used when the dough is being made.

I thought that this dish was very good but hubby said it was a little bland for him.

After enjoying the delicious food, we finally decided to call it quits and have the remaining contents of our dishes wrapped…all i could think of was … lets do this again!
