Recently I was browsing the Chinese newspaper and saw an ad for a duck fest at this restaurant. The ad stated that the chef learned to how to roast the duck from China's most famous Peking Duck restaurant. So I called up 4 people (since it's a set menu for 4), made a reservation (it's required if you want the roasted duck) and off we went.

We actually arrived earlier than our reservation time, so we had to sit there and wait for awhile, as the duck was probably still being roasted. The place was packed, and it looked like everyone is eating that fest. Like all Korean restaurant, first come the side dishes. I simply love the potato, it's my favorite Korean side dish. However when we asked for second round of the side dishes, they run out of the potato :(

 


Finally our roasted duck is done. The chef himself wheeled it out and start carving it. I thought the fact that the chef is all properly dressed and serving the duck himself was quite a nice personal touch. What more impressive was that he could speak both Korean and Mandarin fluently, as we found out later he is actually a Chinese descendant of the Korean tribe located in China, The tribe is located on the border of Korea/China. He personally came out and talked to a lot of the customers in both Mandarin and Korean. Personally I really like the chef, as he is very nice and professional.

 

He first carved off the wings for us to enjoy. The outer skin was really crispy.

Of course, being Peking Duck, it must come with some green onion and sweet duck sauce. However I think this is where the Korean part comes in, because the green onions were sliced and with a bit of Korean kimchi like powder. The other sauce was a bean paste sauce (definitely a Korean sauce).

He then presented us with the sliced roasted duck. It was so delicious, juicy, tender and very flavorful. I highly recommend and totally drool worthy. :)

To eat it the right way, one must wrap the duck in a flour wrap with some green onions and the sweet sauce. Oh I forgot to mention, the wrap was not the typical Chinese flour type wrap, it was a bean curd wrap (very interesting). I thought the wrap worked well with the duck, as it was soft enough to wrap without breaking. I tried it with both the sweet sauce and the bean sauce, both ways are delicious. The flavors all blended very well. YUM

This fest for 4 also comes with a duck hotpot with Chinese style noodle (the knife shaving type if you know what I am talking about). This hotpot was also cooked with some duck meat, noodles, cabbage and bean sprout. It was rich and fulfilling. They will also ask if you want rice, I think the meal come with four rice, but we only asked for one, as it was too much food. (PS: forgot to take a picture when the hot pot just came out, this was taken after half of it was eaten)

Almost forgot, this fest also consist of a choice from Jap Chae (stir fry potato noodle), dumpling or rice sausage. Since I have tried the first 2, we decided to go with the last one. I thought it was definitely interesting, but it tasted okay. You have to dip the sausage in the salt/chili mixture, as the sausage itself didn't have too much flavor.

The whole fest cost only $49.99, as it is a promotional price. I have no idea how long this promotion will lasted, so I suggest if you want it, better book it fast (hence I included the phone number at the top). I believe the regular price for this fest is $61.99. I definitely think this place was pretty cheap, as their lunch specials are only about $5-6.

Service was good, but slow, because there was only one server there on a Friday night. I think they definitely need to hire more people.

Overall, I like this place, especially impressed by this duck fest they have. If you want to try this mouth watering fest at a cheap price, you better hurry, who knows how long it will last.

PS: it would be nice to see some feedback/comments if you are reading my reviews.. thanks :)

    Hi Liz,

    It was very good, and yes the duck was pretty "juicy", aka grease (mostly from the skin). However the flavor wins over the grease factor :)

    I feel that may be an interesting point, it made me think a bit. Thanks for sparking my thinking cap. Occasionally I get so much in a rut that I simply really feel like a record.

    I never tried duck because I think it's an exotic food. But I will perhaps try after I read this blog.

    I just love roasted ducks. I never knew that they held a roasted ducks feast yearly.
  15. Sep 22, 2011 at 6:14 AM
    I never heard of roast duck before and never ate duck before. But I think now it's my favorite dish.

    I was not used into eating ducks but after reading this article, I've been inspired to eat so. It was just perfectly like a chicken.

    Ugg boot footwear will be ideal for fall plus winter weather situations. Keep away from dressed in Uggs original sundance these folks whether it is pouring down rain and also dull outdoor. A sheepskin may get harmed by using substantial moisture content. If you decide to get ugg boot footwear don't forget Ugg sundance potentially they are considerably larger than ordinary boots

    The event started at 2 p.m., and seasoned eaters entrenched themselves early; by 3, Adesso's prime tabletop real estate was completely occupied. Seats at the bar were also full, so we got to "mill about," except we were jammed up in the tight the north face interior. Plates in hand, we tried to make small as servers jockeyed for position. After watching us dance into three or four different spots, a group of seated eaters took pity, scooching over to make space.

    Roasted duck is one of my favorite now since I tried once in some restaurant in Ohio. I never thought it would be more delicious than chicken. Anyway, have your heating and air-conditioning units installed or repaired? Visit us now HVAC Fairfax VA.
