Peking Duck at Red Pearl Kitchen

creamfinger | | Dec 20, 2007 01:21 AM

I cut the below information from the Los Angeles Restaurant News page on the Gayot.com website. I love Peking Duck but so few restaurants manage to pull it off, and sadly none of those seem to be in LA. I know a lot of people love Lu Din Gee on this board, but I honestly find their version to be just ok, and Quanjude is long gone. So the search goes on. I'd love to know if anyone's tried Red Pearl Kitchen's attempt, and what they thought.

Red Pearl Kitchen Serves Up Peking Duck
Red Pearl Kitchen's new menu features chef Tyson Ophaso's Peking Duck, which is made in-house and served Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The centuries-old dish is prepared over three days by a process that includes glazing, drying and slow-roasting. The duck is then carved and served along with the requisite accoutrements: pancakes, scallions, hoisin sauce and cucumber sauce. Red Pearl Kitchen's $36 Peking Duck is served family-style and feeds up to four people. Red Pearl Kitchen, 6703 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, 323-525-1415.
