Mark's Duck House


6184-A Arlington Blvd., Wilson Center,
Falls Church,
United States,

About 15 minutes from D.C., this small Cantonese restaurant is renowned for its lunchtime dim sum, as well as the house specialty: roasted Peking duck, served in a scallion pancake with homemade plum sauce. Run by Hong Kong native Frederick Mark and his wife Esther, the no-frills dining room contains a few Asian-inspired art pieces and a handful of circular tables topped with Lazy Susans. The regular menu has some 400 items, such as pan-fried flounder with ginger soy sauce, while the dim sum menu includes traditional options like shrimp noodle crêpes and fried taro dumplings.
