So after hearing so much about Korean Peking Duck and accidentally going for regular Peking Duck after some miscommunication, we finally made it to Man Ri Sung on Saturday.
Because I had reserved a duck the day before they seemed very intent on getting the dinner going even though we were still waiting for A. Before I even had a chance to really look through the menu, the owner/chef approached us with suggestions … in mandarin. With 2 non-speakers and 3 patchy speakers, the communication wasn’t exactly smooth but at least I was able to understand 90% and convey 10% ^^. While I was appreciative of his suggestions I didn’t like how forceful he was going about it. After he approached us a third time within what felt like 5 minutes I finally ok’d his choices plus an order of Ja Jang Mein.
Wow… Meaty. The meat wasn’t especially flavorful nor was the skin crisp but the meat was moist and there wasn’t much fat which was nice. This, combined with the thick slices of chewy, watery tasting soy wrap and lightly flavored sauce didn’t quite strike a note with me, but was an interesting twist.
Carn.H thought this dish was the highlight of the night – but I felt the noodles were slightly overcooked.
Overall, not a bad meal but not one I would crave for or feel the need to have again. Except, maybe for the seafood pancake ^^
After tip everything was about $120 or in other words $20/head.
Likelihood of revisiting: 30% (but not for the Korean Peking Duck)
Culinary Mindset: homey
