When I was a kid (1955 - had the newspaper corner on Jackson and Van Ness in front of Ahren's Bakery) Kan's was famous for their Peking Duck. For nostalgic reasons I have an interest in going there but I would like to know if anybody can comment on their current Peking Duck status?
I'll be interested to see if you get any responses. We've done some reports on dim sum there (surprisingly not bad for a place that looks like a tourist trap), but I don't know of anyone who has had dinner there.
If you are talking about Johnny Kan's on Grant Ave, it is long gone. What is there now is nothing like the old days of Kan's. The chefs are all retired and no longer cooking as far as I know. Johnny himself is serving food in a high place with Danny Kaye in the kitchen helping out.
If you want Peking Duck there that is another story.
