A good friend rolled back into town and we decided to get together over dinner. Knowing that my friend has the lock on some of the best Chinese cuisine in this city i got him to choose the spot. He took me for a drive down to SE Marine & Fraser to a down low spot called Wonton King. The decor and atmosphere was your typical chinese restaurant. My friend pointed out that the Peking Duck was their specialty and told me that we had to try it. So we ordered the Special Duck plate for $35 and the Egg Tofu dish. The Duck comes in 2 courses: first, the Duck Skin here has a good amount of meat on it, which we both prefer over just the skin like most places. You wrap these in a thin flour wrap w/ a little green and sauce. Amazing! They give you enough Skin & Wraps for a good 15 or so delicious servings. Second, the duck meat is chopped up with bamboo and chinese mushroom into a stir fry, and served with a tower of perfectly shaped fresh crisp lettuce. The stir fry was mad tasty. There was enough for another 2 people. Lastly the Egg Tofu came served with bok choy and chinese mushroom with a nice starch glaze over them. These small pucks of egg tofu were so good. crispy on the outside and soft inside. On top of the great food here, the service was surprisingly good. To me, chinese joints aren't known to have the best service but the service here was Great, making this spot a "must try". The Special Duck and Egg Tofu with tax turned into a $50 bill, but we had enough leftovers for a whole other meal. And we were stuffed! We got the rest to go and took our time and drank tea to help digest. You could easily feed 4 people with what we ordered. We got friendly service right to the door. Try the Special Duck at Wonton King. I believe it's one of the best in the city. Wonder how their Wontons are?
