We’ve taken out Duck House many a time and thought it was excellent. Has anyone ordered Pandemic Peking Duck from JiRong to go and know how it compares? TIA
Ji Rong is a formidable competitor to Duck House. I enjoyed my Ji Rong takeout in March immensely.
Thanks, JL! Do you recall if the warming instructions were similar?
I would like to throw in Beijing’s Tasty House duck into the mix for consideration.
Mrs. J_L (who assisted in that phase) states similar preps.
How does the Peking duck at WP24 compare?
WP24’s Peking Duck was one of the main courses served at the reception dinner for the then Chinese vice president and the current Chinese President Xi Jinping when he visited Los Angeles in 2012.
US hosts for the event included the then Vice Presidents Joe Biden (an equivalent), California Governor Jerry Brown, former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Before dinner Xi attended a Lakers game at STAPLES Center where he was greeted by AEG Executives, Magic Johnson and David Beckham,
What does this fact have to do with the question of whether the peking duck at WP24 is noteworthy?
OMG - it’s so obv - you think these people would tolerate bad peeking duck???
Biden looks like he hasn’t had a decent meal since he was a Congressman.
Obama had, like, two bites of his sushi at Jiro.
It is so comical - and, I suppose, quite sad - how much care and effort goes into the food selection, preparation, and service for these jackasses. And how almost none of it ever gets eaten.
With the caveat it’s been a few years, I thought the ESGV winner was Happy Duck House, now known as Golden Duck House.
But, a +1 on JiRong and Beijing Tasty House.
Wow! Big price difference between JiRong ($65) and Duck House ($56). Am I missing something? JiRong doesn’t seem to be including soup for that price.
Yes, soup is extra at JiRong. But it’s a great soup.
Ji Rong, Tasty House and Duck House still the best spots for Peking Duck?
Also, how many other dishes are recommended for a party of 4 along with a full portion of duck?
Not sure about the others but Ji Rong’s duck was pretty forgettable the last 2 times I went post COVID.
Any alternative suggestions?
Haven’t been back for a while but Mott 32 in Las Vegas has a decent one!
Try Chang’An in Tustin. Warning: Things can get expensive there.
Haha, I did wonder about Chang’An because although I don’t find him to be reliable, Andy Gavin had this spot number one in his Peking Duck rankings.
Yeah been wanting to try changan and even meizhou.
Both their ducks look better than ji rong and duck house. The duck/house ji rong version is so not good its like shredded duck with scrapped slices of skin.
OT but that is normally a sign to not follow any recommendations - I don’t really know why but that site/blog rubs the complete wrong way and many different levels
Yeah, I generally agree. That and the time he copy pasted stuff from an FTC post and passed it off as his own haha.
