Peking Duck, Food Express

Palace Station’s unassumingly named but traditionally authentic Chinese restaurant offers Peking Duck, a must for Lunar New Year. The skin of the duck is crispy and shiny with a nearly lacquer-red finish, and is served with steamed buns for guests to create their own duck bao. Place slices of duck into the warm bao and dress with accouterments of scallions, cucumber and hoisin sauce for a bit of crunchy texture to go along with juicy and tender duck. $40, in Palace Station, 367-2411.
