The Peking Duck Crepes starter at the Sushi Lounge is a pretty crisscross of two fat rolled pancakes wrapped with delicate scallions and drizzled with sticky sweet and salty Chinese barbeque sauce. The beer crepes are filled to bursting with saucy duck that is savory and sweet, familiar. While the decadent meaty duck stuffing is a rich counter point, the pancakes are tender and doughy with a subtle sweetness. The sauce contrasts the bold hues of the ivory pancakes and bright green scallions, and plays up the high points of the appetizer. ••
