Hunan Cuisine,American-Chinese

Located at Germantown Plaza, Peking Palace is a big attraction to the local people. They would like to stop by and enjoy the food and service again and again.

Judging from the name of the restaurant, it is easy to believe that this is a restaurant offering dishes with Peking flavor. Instead, the dishes here are mainly of Hunan flavor, which is characterized by its hot and sour flavor, fresh aroma, greasiness, deep color, and the prominence of the main flavor in each dish.

There are two sets of menus in the restaurant: one is for the Americanized Chinese food, and the other for authentic Chinese food. Among all kinds of flavorful dishes, there are some Hunan specialties that you should never miss: Beef with Broccoli, Hot & Sour Soup, Spicy Chicken with Hot Peppers, Steamed Smoked Pork in Black Bean Sauce, just to name a few. You may also try these out, such as Chi Bi Tofu with Pork, Crispy Chicken with Three Kinds of Peppers, and Pine Nuts and Corn in Light/Sweet Sauce, which are rare on the menus of other Chinese restaurants. The patrons can also have many other choices, as the owner often updates the dishes to satisfy their emerging demands.

In fact, the décor of the restaurant is featured with Peking style: traditional Chinese calligraphies and paintings are hung on the wall; elegant folding screens are used to separate the dining room. The homey ambience is the patrons’ favorite.

Ms Tang, the owner, is planning to open another restaurant recently and she is determined to have more people taste Chinese food and enjoy the comfortable ambience in Peking Palace.
