Questions about Duck House on Christmas Day

mocro | Nov 27, 2010 03:54 PM

We live in Pasadena and need a spot for dinner for our family of four on Christmas. Rather than go to a hotel, Peking duck seemed like a great idea and rather festive so I made a reservation at the Duck House in Monterey Park.

I've read some mixed reviews on Yelp about the Duck House. Should I be worried? In particular, that the Peking duck skin is delicious, but the meat is rather flavorless and often served cold. Also some criticism that they urge you to overorder. When I made the reservation they asked if we wanted duck and I said yes and they said 'a whole duck?' and I said 'uh, okay' knowing I'd ask you Chowies!

Anyone been recently and/or any advice as to how to order the duck for 4 people? Thanks!
