A Beijing Duck Feast at Sun Wah
The Hong Kong-style whole-bird feast at Sun Wah BBQ is an off-menu prix-fixe extravaganza, presented in two parts. First, a whole roasted Beijing duck is wheeled out and carved tableside, served with steamed bao (ideal for mini duck-skin “tacos”), pickled daikon radish, and sticky hoisin sauce. The remaining carcass returns to the kitchen to form a second course of duck fried rice and duck soup with Chinese winter melon. House-made sorbet provides a palate-cleansing closer for the meal. The meal will run you $40; make sure to call in advance to ensure availability.

When: Fri–Wed (restaurant closed Thursday)
