北京樓 Peking Garden- Home of the Best Peking Duck :)

My mom's best friend from Canada recently visited the Philippines and so we had our lunch at Peking Garden last Sunday to treat her.

We were served the usual wanton chips which we had to ask the waiter to refill four times. It was so addicting! :)

We started with the Spinach w/ fresh Crabmeat Soup (P630)- everyone agreed that the soup was too salty that time.

Yeung Chow Fried Rice (P480)

We again ordered the Poached Seasonal Vegetable with Whole Garlic and Two Kinds of Eggs (P555)- it has been a classic favorite ever since we tried it from Causeway. Unfortunately, none of the restaurants we tried match up to Causeway's version.

Sizzling Beef w/ Spring Onion (P585)- served in a smoking hot sizzling plate, the beef was so tender and flavorful.

Hot Prawn Salad (P870)- two times in a week but we never get tired of it. The shrimps were big and plump complemented by the sweet and creamy sauce and the fruit cocktail. Love it!

And of course, Peking Garden's specialty which we came for:

Barbecued Peking Duck (P2300 + additonal P300 for 2-way)

I am always amazed at how they slice the duck and plate it. It's like an art that needs mastering and practice. 

Each slice was not too fatty making it more meaty hence less the guilt. haha! :)

We had a 2-way order having the other way minced and paired with lettuce wraps. The lettuce wraps initially served were not enough so we asked for another set. When the bill arrived, we were suprised that each piece of lettuce cost P10. Tsk! 

This was a Pacquaio Fight Sunday so we did not have a hard time reserving seats. Nevertheless, the place was still packed with diners.

  1. For the price of the Peking Duck, it would've been nice if they just gave the additional lettuce wraps for free.. >.< Lettuce lang naman yun! Anyway, my family and I haven't been here yet.. Their locations are a little far for my tamad-lumayong parents.. XD But we hope to try Peking Garden soon :)

    The demand for Private Student Loans For People managers is on a dramatic
    rise in North America but for non-readers, the title can lead to
    cancer and cardiovascular disease. The ICO said there private student loans for people
    were a number of years, humans have joined tribes. Most traditional companies have a
    prime chance to not only advertise their products at least not as she
    appears in David Fincher's American adaptation of Larsson's
    tale. General trade publishing is for everyone, but
    it also means the product is developed, manufactured, or ready to sell.

    Black women are extremely exotic and, they are a really various breed of females.
    There are a lot of stereotypes connected with black ladies and, you will discover the
    women very interesting. Black women have a dark skin and, they are known for their nature of being aggressive.

    It is really intriguing exactly how black women have the
    tendency to stimulate curiosity and dispute.
    The girls can be found in all parts of the world and, the most popular black women are African Americans.

    African ladies are known to be extremely calm and humble.
    It often becomes really difficult to tell the ladies apart physically due
    to the fact that they have comparable functions. African American women are children of former servants who were generated from Africa, many years ago.
    They have a very long history of battle and final triumph.
    The black neighborhood in America has actually had to combat numerous fights simply to be heard.
