To celebrate dad's birthday, we went to Old Kingdom in Surrey Hills. I was looking forward to it as I love Peking duck. It was my first visit, however mum and dad had been there before. I was also interested to see how it compared to Simon's.

We ordered the 3 Course Peking Duck meal with one duck.

The Salted Vegetable and Duck Soup followed. It was a clear broth style soup with tofu as well. A traditional Chinese style 'filler' dish as part of the banquet.

We opted for the additional noodles for the stir-fry. I'm grad we decided on the noodles as they were crispy and gave more substance to the dish.

At the end of our meal, my parents asked if they had any spare duck carcases as they wanted to make congee. They were generous enough to give them a full bag at no charge.

Old Kingdom is a great place for Peking duck. The banquet was well priced and we left very full and satisfied. They definitely know how to cook delicious duck.
