ISO: The best duck in los angeles
If you like your duck cold, Nanjing-style, try NANJING KITCHEN in San Gabriel.
If you want Chinese BBQ duck, my vote goes to the takeout side of MPV SEAFOOD in Alhambra.
You want haute cuisine duck - then my vote goes to Saddle Peak Lodge (www.saddlepeaklodge.com)
706 West Las Tunas Dr.
1420 South Garfield Ave.
If you like Duck Brest served medium rare like an excellent cut of beef, like I do, then from L'Orangerie:
Le Canard de Barbarie et la Truffe Noire $44.00 Rôti en Parmentier Moderne
Roasted Moscovi Breast of Duck, Black Truffles and Vegetable Parmentier
I haven't been there under their current Executive Chef, so I am hoping nothing has changed much. They also have a 55 page Wine List of 25,000 bottles, 600 distinct items, and enough in the $50 area and under to help survive any financial meltdown.
