Mandarin Garden in Berkeley, CA *****

This restaurant has the absolutely the most delicious Peking duck! I say, visit the place for the duck itself. It’s definitely worth driving a few miles for. They come with tortilla like wrapping paper instead of your typical bread – the skin is crispy and meat is juicy. In the bread, we put some hoisin sauce and cucumbers and green onions along with the meat/skin. The waiter was nice enough to give us a demonstration as well. The staff is very friendly and can speak Chinese, Japanese and English.

Aside from the duck, we’ve had other items on the menu that were quite good. I really liked the pot stickers and they seem to have a specialty called stuffed eggplants that other restaurants don’t seem to carry.

I’ll definitely visit the restaurant again should I be in Berkeley.
