A co-worker is asking for restaurant recommendations in Chinatown area for Peking Duck.
Thanks in advance!

    Does anyone know if Champion House is around anymore and if it's any good? I remember that place was around before all the new Chinatowns developed uptown...
    They had a really fun Gong that would chime every time a Peking Duck order came out of the kitchen. Fun show. Dingy place. More nostalgia than anything else for me...

        Lai Wah Heen has good duck, although it's pricey. I've had the duck at Asian Legend in North York and enjoyed it. I haven't tried the Asian Legend downtown, but assume it's of the same quality. And Champion House has been gone for years. I miss it.

          Really? Wow, I have not been to Chinatown to have a meal in a while - the last time was during SARS to try and support the Chinese community and dining scene. That is too bad. Had many fond memories from my younger years at that place.
