Peking Duck Take-Out Window

This is a fast food take-out window for Peking duck at a restaurant in Flushing, Queens. I know how oxymoronic it sounds especially since a good Peking duck takes more than a day to prepare. I guess the owner managed to incorporate the best of the East and West to bring the cuisine to the masses.

The photo here shows how Peking duck is traditionally served. It is encased in a steamed bun and then topped with scallions and hoisin sauce. However, I think the restaurant here served it with julienned slices of cucumber instead. Each of these little Peking duck stuffed buns costs $0.75.

Duck in the bun? Though it sounds a bit weird for me but I think it must be nice :)

And thanks for visiting my blog. BTW, we called the iced kacang as "ABC" too (Ais Batu Campur) :D

That's interesting, Ming, none of the Chinese BBQ restaurants in Perth serve duck in a bun like this. I tried a similar dish in Westlake Chinese Restaurant in S'pore sometime back,'Stewed pork belly in a bun'. It was so good, Ming! the pork belly melts in your mouth! When I came back, I tried making the dish from memory of the succulent flavors and I succeeded! I serve this dish once in awhile , maybe one day I'll post it on my blog!

I like good food but duck is not on my menu. I like your photo of it though as I did yesterday.

Very interesting to see how people live elsewhere and what they eat. Here are not so many take-a-ways.

No no....I thought Peking Duck should be sandwiched and wrapped in thinly crepe-like egg-based skin instead? I thought the steamed buns are for braised pork belly? :O

Tigerfish & Oh For The Love to Good - You ladies are correct. I think they used the steamed buns as substitute because it's more difficult to make the crepes.

Darn, I can't pull anything pass you ladies.

Funny, I was in Flushing a couple of weeks ago and was tempted to buy one of these Peking-duck-on-a-buns, but was already full of scallion buns & turnip cakes & couldn't eat another thing. Are they are delicious as they smell?
