Mark's Duck House in Falls Church gets a 24 from Zagats. I've been interested in trying more Chinese restaurants in Virginia as my favorite ones are all located in Rockville, MD which is just slightly less convenient than Virginia.
Lucky for me, Mr. BW's a big fan of making me happy and so we went to Mark's Duck House on Friday night.
We started with the obligatory order of pan fried dumplings.
Photo quality is bad, but as you can see, it's appearance suggests that it's not pan fried, but deep fried. Although Mr. BW enjoyed it, I was not a fan and would not recommend these.
In contrast to the dumplings, the bbq pork is delicious. According to Mr. BW - the best he's had! That's pretty high praise, seeing as how he's had it from Sam Woo's in Monterey Park!
The whole peking duck that we ordered was heavenly. The skin was perfectly crisped and the ample portion made for some pretty happy chinese duck taco making.
Here's a view of the beef fried noodles and the stir-fry green beans. Both highly recommended.
Finally, we ordered a whole tilapia:
Delicious flavoring, but a bit too much by way of small bones for my liking.
All in all, a hearty delicious meal. I would highly recommend Mark's Duck House to anyone searching for authentic chinese food.
