Duck Chang's Restaurant was established in 1975, this is the restaurant that made the Peking Duck famous! Peking Duck Restaurant was opened in 1982 and has been serving Peking Duck and other delectable culinary delights ever since. Duck Chang's was the first and only Chinese restaurant in the United States that prepared and served Peking Duck without 24hrs advanced notice.
I love Asian food but I confess that Chinese is my least favorite; however Peking Duck is better than most, and its steamed dumplings are extraordinary for three reasons: The dough is light and perfect (most Chinese restaurants serve dumplings that are thick and doughy), the filling consists of a nicely seasoned meat, and the dipping sauce is made from a beautifully-seasoned soy sauce -- with fresh minced garlic and slivers of scallions. There is also a cold appetizer that I order as an entree, the name of which I unfortunately cannot recall but it's a delight, especially in the summer. Its base is tender strips of beef, with cucumber, onions and cilantro in a light, perhaps vinegar-based, sauce. It tends to be Tabasco-hot, so I modify that when I order. Oh yes...the Peking Duck is good too.
When we lived nearby, we went often, because it was our local chinese place. Since we've moved, we've tried half a dozen local places, and nothing compares. We make the drive just for the Peking Duck - the owner's secret plum sauce recipe is to die for. Pick up some extra when you leave for barbequing, or experimenting with your own recipes!
