X.O. taste, falls church Va

i found some descent reviews on a cantonese restaurant near john's work, so we met up for lunch on a friday.  the place is about 35 mins from gaithersburg but only 15 mins from where he works, so the location worked out for both of us.

the service was quick, typical of chinese restaurants, and the food was descent.  the bbq pork and duck over rice (雙拼) is one of the best i've had for a while.  roast pork was juicy, not dried up like some other cantonese restaurants in the area.  the duck was very tasty as well, i think they fry the duck before roasting it, retaining all the juices very well!

he ordered the roast pork lo mein, which is a very 'american' dish and not worth mentioning.  we also ordered an extra dish called marinated varieties (滷水什錦) to share, it was a waste of money!  the portion was rather small and it only tasted okay, definitely not worth the $7.95 on the menu.  on top of that, they put a thick layer of steamed bean sprouts on the bottom of the already small dish as a filler.... tsk tsk...
i would probably go back for the bbq pork, duck, and chicken.  maybe even peking duck (whole duck for $26.95)  it might not be worth the drive, but if you are in the area, give the meats a try!
