Serpico, Philadelphia: Deep-Fried Duck Leg

5 of 26

Peter Serpico (the former culinary director of David Chang’s Momofuku empire) has decamped to Philadelphia—and his riff on Peking duck bao is a high note on a menu that has earned rave reviews. There’s some Wylie Dufresne–inspired molecular magic in how it comes together, but all you need to know is that this honey-and-hoisin-glazed, deboned duck leg, deep fried and served with pickled cucumbers on a Martin’s potato roll, is giving the Philly cheesesteak serious competition. serpicoonsouth.com
