Mark's Duck House
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.
Arrive by 10:30 a.m. to avoid a long wait for dim sum, and be sure to request a table near the kitchen for first dibs from the rolling food carts.
