Wahsun in North Phoenix Has Closed
Goodbye, roast duck. You'll be missed.
We're going to need a moment to get over this one, folks. Because while there are a number of solid options for Chinese cuisine around town, there was only one place where you could pay $8 for an excellent and sizable portion of succulent roasted duck.
And unfortunately for us all, that place is no more.
For years the no-frills Chinese dining destination wooed diners with crispy-skin roasted pork belly, flavorful hot pots, and kick-ass Peking duck. Though located in a West Valley strip with little charm to offer, Washun was a favorite for egg roll aficionados and savvy diners.
As with many Chinese restaurants, Wahsun offered both a menu of Americanized dishes (as in kung pao beef and chow mein) as well as a Chinese menu chock full of authentic and inexpensive eats.
