Featured Philadelphia Restaurant: Sang Kee Peking Duck House
Located right in the heart of Philly in downtown Chinatown is Sang Kee Peking Duck House. They’ve been voted “Best” in Philly by quite a few different media publications since their opening in 1980, and it’s fair to say that that honor has stayed with them all the way until now. But why is that so? Aren’t there many other Hong Kong style restaurants that have opened up since then that serve dishes that others might consider to be the “Best?”
Of course there have been, but that doesn’t mean that Sang Kee Peking Duck House hasn’t maintained its greatness over the last four decades since opening in 1980. Part of the reason that they’ve been able to do this is because of their Peking Duck dish. Yes, as you should have inferred from the title of their restaurant, Sang Kee Peking Duck House’s specialty is, well, Peking Duck. When ordering their Peking Duck, you have the choice of getting a half a duck or a whole duck, and it is served with pancakes, scallions and rice. For those of you without an absolutely monstrous appetite, we certainly recommend that you stick with the half a duck if you’re only feeding yourself.
But don’t look past Sang Kee Peking Duck House’s appetizers, soups, salads, fried noodle dishes and rice platters when fixating your eyes on their entrees because you’ll be missing out! We suggest that when you’re enhancing your appetite with their appetizers, you should totally go with the Peking Duck Roll. You can also go with Dumplings (steamed or fried), Spring Rolls (chicken or vegetarian), or even Fried Wontons – you can’t go wrong with any of their choices.
For soups, Sang Kee Peking Duck House’s Small Wonton isn’t as small as they make it out to be. Unlike other restaurants that sometimes serve only two (or even only one) wonton in their Wonton Soup, Sang Kee Peking Duck House gives you four for a very reasonable price. This could serve as a lunch of its own if your appetite is frugal, but if that’s not the case, you can always try a heartier soup such as the House Special Soup. Loaded with chicken, shrimp, pork, wonton, noodles and vegetables, the House Special Soup is bound to fill you up.
Sang Kee Peking Duck House offers various rice platters (we recommend the House Specialty Fried Rice), meat dishes (be sure to try the Beef & Broccoli), poultry dishes (they have some awesome General Tso’s Chicken), seafood dishes (try the Scallops With Mixed Vegetables if you’re not bashful), and even vegetarian dishes (if you don’t mind garlic breath, give the Sautéed Water Spinach In Garlic Sauce a whirl)!
But really, you must look at Sang Kee Peking Duck House’s WHOLE MENU before you go about making a decision based on our recommendations, because their other offerings are phenomenal as well. That’s why the restaurant has been alive and kicking since 1980 in the heart of Philly – and that’s why us folks here at DiningIn would love to bring their cuisine to your door.
