Leiu Geen Deiu or Lee Giin Dee (something like that)??? in SGV?

  • k

what's the name of the joint? it's a chinese restaurant, and i think this is where they serve peking duck, but not sure.

i think it's one of those restuarants where they have one of those really famous dishes.

        It's the best place to go for Peking duck in this town. We had a Chowhound meetup here several years ago, writeup on my blog:

          had it a month ago - absolutely delicious -- though definitely something to bring a friend (or two) for...

          and if you trust Los Angeles magazine, it was recently named one of the best authentic Chiense restaurants in town.

          Their (thick) scallion pancakes aren't bad either.

              The article's URL is weird so not sure if you'll get the same page too-- but go to www.lamag.com - and check out their October '06 issue from the archives... it's the cover story, can't miss it.

            1. thanks for the menu link ipse,

              from the online menu it sounds really good, and not just for the peking duck. but also the prices seems very very high? am incorrect about this?

                No, the prices are probably on par for a restaurant like this -- e.g. semi-formal banquet type restaurant.

                I've never really been a big fan of LDG, but try for yourself.
