Roast Duck

Eight Treasures Roasting is a Chinese restaurant.  Specializes in Cantonese cuisine, specifically roast meats and dim sum.

It’s located in the same gas station strip mall as Va Bene Pasta Deli (see 10.146 Bruschetta).  Again, I’m a bit cautious, but willing to risk contamination in hopes that the restaurant – super close to home – has decent Cantonese – my favorite.

The roast duck, which I’d been most looking forward to, was disappointing.  Juicy and delicate flesh with nicely rendered skin.  But the meat tasted kinda funky, almost fishy.

The dim sum and noodle soup were pretty good, enough to warrant a second visit.
