This was our set menu. Several items I’ve already featured before but I was glad that there were new dishes that I was going to try for the first time.

I ate only one of the 4 appetizers, the honeyed fish butterfly shape. Strange name but it’s the best appetizer in Peking Garden. It’s sweet, thin and crispy fish. I’ve never eaten this anywhere else.

The soup was extremely tasty and flavorful. I just didn’t eat the papaya or the whelk.

The Peking duck was a staple in most tables in the restaurant. This is what they are famous for. I heard they sell several hundred ducks in a day. No one can cut up a duck as fast and as prettily as they do in Peking Garden. They even manage to scrape of the fat from the crisp skin.

I loved these crispy prawns flavored with salted egg. They were simply sublime.

This seemed like a healthy dish, using only egg whites and a lone egg yolk on top. I was told that this type of dish needed a lot of oil to cook it. No wonder it was so good.

The crabs and rice were very good. Perfect for crab lovers!

I loved the marinated flanked steak that was seared and sliced thinly. It lay on a bed of shredded lettuce thus the name beef fillet salad.

I didn’t like the dessert at all. I wish it were just plain almond soup but it had egg whites in it. It tasted strange. Good thing since I was already so full from lunch.

  1. accompanied friend who was availing a coupon  for their duck at 50% off. Unfortunately he only had 2 days left before coupon expires. We visit the place only to be told that resto was fully booked the next 2 days and that we could not take out the duck. Manager and head waitress were dismissive.Did not care about the loss as Groupon have paid them already anyway.  Did not really care about the coupon promo. They might have good duck but with such service why should I patronize it. .. One fucking lousy service!!
