Lu Din Gee: what to order?

WHills Apr 20, 2007 02:15 PM

I'm heading over to Lu Din Gee this weekend. Any recs on what to order? I already pre-ordered a roasted duck two way: with soup.

Any other suggestions? Not too into spicy dishes...

    The duck can be very good. (The one at Mission 261 is my fav). The konyakku dishes really are good. I got a cold one, where it looked like green&yellow noodles. The eel with rice is the best dish, but mind you, is quite subtle in flavor.

    P.S. There's a dish there which is shrimp, canned pineapple, and mayonnaise. It's nothing complicated, tastes like 1950's indulgent retro grub, but nontheless, is delicious.

      Try some of the konnyaku dishes - I'm partial to the one with the black fungus.

      Also, get the house special chicken.

        The eel and rice dish is also rather good - enormous portion, however. A group of four of us ordered the duck 2 days and the eel/rice dish, and left a good quarter of the duck and third of the rice behind.

          i second the above rec for the eel. the rice is incredible. i actually think it's the best thing there next to the peking duck. i also had some nice thick tri-colored noodles, monkey king mushroom, and lightly fried dragon ball. as jacinthe says, portions are large.
