Best peking duck in Chinatown Toronto?
House of Gourmet?
I'm looking for best price/quality ratio. Nothing too cheap, nothing too expensive. It must be in Chinatown Toronto and walking distance.
Sorry to digress, but while I love Asian Legend, you have to know what to order there. I've had friends who have ordered the "wrong thing" and I was embarrassed to have so highly recommended it... Good to know though not to order the P Duck. I'm sticking with their great dim sum... moo shu, etc... As for Peking Duck, if you can find Greg Couillard on here he'd know...
Why don't you choose one, and give it a try? E Pan and H of G are likely comparable and around the same price. Both are liked on this Board, if you do a search, and in the past 3 years, the Peking duck has been recommended at E Pan. That's why I mentioned it in the earlier Chinatown thread you started. Another poster recommends the House of Gourmet's Peking Duck in this recent thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/842841
Relatively few people recommend the Dundas St Asian Legend for anything, so I'd probably lean towards E Pan or H of G, which are well-liked by people who post on this Board. I've been to E Pan and thought the room was slightly more polished and modern than some of the other Board favourites in Chinatown.
Nowhere in Chinatown is selling Peking Duck that's too expensive. Chinatown charges prices its market will bear, which is around $33 for 2 course Peking Duck right now.
Take one for the team. :-)
How about Crown Princess on Bay? Close enough to Chinatown, better duck than E-Pan (and definitely better than Asian Legend) and less expensive than LWH. I think it was $40, if I remember correctly.
While Lai Wah Heen is good (very Hong Kong) I think that Dynasty(in Yorkville) is better value for the money..and the second serving is i lettuce cups rther than buns.
