Peking Gourmet in Falls Church Take 2

It was my uncles 50th birthday the other day and he decided that he wanted to go to his favorite restaurant Peking Gourmet Inn. I did a pretty in-depth review in the post, so here are the highlights/new observations from this trip. 

Not so important but I liked the fact that all of their plates had the name printed on it. Thought it was really cool. 
Ordered a Chinese Beer, Tsing Tao. Good, light Chinese beer. I love drinking beer made in the country of the ethnicity I am eating. 
Crab Rangoons. Made with fresh, not imitation crab and paired with a sweet garlicky sauce. Very good. The original rangoon before restaurants started using imitation crab and cream cheese to cut prices. 
Fried Chinese Leek Dumpling. Classic, amazing dumplings. Even though they are fried, they are still light due to the combination of leeks and meat. 
Lamb with Spring Onions. This use to be a favorite at our family's favorite Chinese Restaurant but then they stopped making it. Peking Gourmet Inn's version was amazing. The spring onions, lamb and overall flavor was amazing-a very fresh tasting dish. 
Szechuan Beef Proper. Good, and even though it was my favorite dish last time, it's a little to sweet for me now, and everyone at the table agreed. I would prefer if it had some sort of kick to it/less sugar. 
And wow, I am horrible, I didn't take a picture of the Peking Duck. The star of the show. Check out my previous post to see the pictures-they are kind of in your face.

The second time was just as good as the first. My advice to you, get the dumplings and the duck and then experiment with something else
(or get the lamb with spring onions-was really impressed with it)! The quality of the food (aka the meat) is good so feel free to experiment!
