The Huffington Post ranked Peking duck number one in their list of the ten foods you must try before you die. Well, eat your hearts out Melbourne Chinese food fans, because May’s Peking Duck in Camberwell can comfortably rank among the city’s best restaurants if you’re after the crispy skinned, seasoned and roasted delicacy, a dish that has been prepared in China since the imperial age. For the most luxurious dining experience at May’s Evans Place premises in the Camberwell Shopping Precinct, go for the three-course meal: whole Peking duck served the traditional way with homemade pancakes, cucumber and spring onion and a special homemade Peking sauce plus stir-fried bean shoots with shredded duck meat (authentic Peking duck is more skin than meat) and a tofu and duck bone soup. Waste not want not!
The soup, the Sanchoi Bau and spring rolls were excellent but very disappointed in the Peking duck. The pancakes were too moist( think they may have been microwaved) not much duck and the hoisin sauce was thin . Wine was ok
nice fresh peking ducks, pastry was good, but the duck soup was a bit tasteless. good service, nice venue. the duck being cut up infront of diners is a great idea.
