Delicious Peking duck @ Spring Deer, TST

This place has been around for a very long time now. They serve traditional old school Chinese food. I remember coming here about 5 – 6 years ago whilst holidaying in Hong Kong with family and have yet to go here since I have arrived.

MG is a huge fan of Peking duck, even when we were in Sydney we would go eat Peking duck or lobster! He came with Hubby and I when we wanted to sample our wedding banquet! I can definitely count on MG to go eating with me that’s for sure. I have truly missed eating with him!

I didn’t think I could make a reservation for that night – I have heard from friends about the long waiting list, minimum 2 week wait, however, thankfully, on a week night it was much easier, and especially if it’s later at night! So we scored a table at 8.30pm and were looking forward to some delicious and juicy Peking duck.

We ordered the Peking duck and it did not disappoint! The skin was crispy, duck meat, with a slither of fat, was juicy and succulent. It was a tad oily but satisfying. The pancakes were a little disappointing. It was too thick for my liking as I like my pancakes slightly thin!

We had two plates of this, much more than we needed, but satisfied our Peking duck cravings!

Next came the stir-fry mix vegetables. This was a little ordinary, nothing special.

A big steamer of dumplings was placed in front of us. These pork dumplings were meaty, juicy and moist. It was full of flavour and deliciously yummy.

The second course to our Peking duck was san choy bau. I was getting full by this stage (duck over load!) however, did try a bit of this and it was ok. I have had better san choy bau elsewhere. MG seemed to have enjoyed it though.

They claim that they have the best Peking duck in Hong Kong – is it the best? I thought the Peking duck was good but the one in Ye Shanghai (read review here) was a lot better. It was served differently, skin and meat, served separately.  The pancakes were superior better!

Nevertheless, it was satisfying but not sure if I would say that it was the ‘best’ Peking duck in Hong Kong. They do have some great old school dishes – really wanted the sweet and sour pork but was completely turned down by both MG and Hubby! Will definitely have to come back again!
