Moon Palace (Chinatown)

Moon Palace provided the best experience I have ever had in any Chinatown restaurant.  Not only do they serve everyone their own individual bowl of soup at the table, they make roasted duck wraps at the table too! Plus, they offer authentic soup dumplings!  I officially love this place and can't wait for someone to plan another large gathering here... (Friends: Hint, hint.)  Food is delish and service is fantastic.   Reservations can be made here.

Sizzling Golden Rice Soup.  The server shushed us while she poured the rice into the soup so that we could hear the rice siiizzzzllleeeeee.
Savory and extremely flavorful, the crispy rice provided a nice texture to the soft ingredients in this soup.
Xiao Long Bao.  Soup dumplings.
Look how adorable they are!
The cuteness didn't stop me from taking a bite out of it though.  The hot, savory broth flows out when biting into the dumpling. 
Peking Duck.
The server makes every wrap at the table.
Our server moved so fast that I couldn't even take a clear picture of her assembling each wrap.

Oh my goodness, the duck was just heavenly.
Beef fried rice.
Bok Choy with mushrooms.  Absolutely delicious.  Crunchy, fresh, and perfectly marinated.
Mongolian Beef with broccoli.
Salt and Pepper Fried Pork Chop.
Ma-po Tofu.
Ended our meal with Happy Birthday almond cookies.  Jon, I hope you had a wonderful birthday! 

Happy eating.
