Old Kingdom

Introduction: Long established Peking Duck specialty restaurant in Smith St Fitzroy
Ambience: Run down, crowded and battered

Service: Friendly but somewhat confused

Food: The Peking duck is carved at the table and you make your own packet with the spring onion, cucumber and plum sauce and thin pancakes. the duck is then removed and the remaining meat used to make a duck and beanshoot dish. The bones are cooked up to make a duck soup which is served last. An excellent meal.

There is also a full menu of chinese dishes which, having tried Lemon Chicken, Beef with mushroom and vegetables and Fried tofu I can confidently say they are just OK but certainly nothing special
Wine: Byo

Price: Very inexpensive

Comments: The place to go for Peking duck. Make sure you make a reservation Ph. 9417 2438 and organize that they have duck available (Closed Monday)

Score: 13.5/20
