Duck House Editor’s Pick
Roasted, hung, and dried in traditional Beijing style, this PSU-area haunt serves sliced duck generously but unceremoniously on a platter arrayed with scallions, cucumbers, sauces, and a pile of steamed tortilla-like pancakes. Assemble the crispy, fatty-skinned meat into a Chinese taco and delight in its simplicity (as well as the dining hall’s stripped down, Olive Garden vibe). Psst: Quantities are limited, so a call ahead to reserve your duck is worth the trouble. If you’re still hungry—not likely, as the duck dinner serves four—order deeply flavorful xiao long bao soup dumplings ($11.95) bursting with hot broth.
