Hi Andy - Id that what is was? That's too funny! It's nice hearing from you; I hope all is well.


I love these posts. Time to make another road trip. =)

Way to go, Kirk! Hahahaha


Hi Kirbie - Yes, go and check them out.

Hi TFD - I'd forgotten how drivers in the area were.....


I actually had duck from lien hoa about 5 weeks ago and it was fantastic!! I had it for dinner for about 5 nights and it was just as good every night.


Hi Paul - They do make a very good duck. Now I'll have to try some of the other stuff too!

Wandering Chopsticks

Huh. Weird. I tried to comment yesterday but the "post" button wouldn't light up for me. It's working today though.

My favorite roast duck is from Capital Dim Sum & BBQ, not the big restaurant, but the take out shop next to Wing Hop Fung in Monterey Park. Slight honey and five spice flavors, not the heavy soy sauce-laden version at Sam Woo. Eat it right away and the skin is so nice and crisp.

The dim sum to-go is cheap too, but around 5 p.m., they have fresh baked char siu bao. Go right before closing and it's 6 dim sum items for $2.

The roast pork is good too. Juicy. I've stopped getting my BBQ from Sam Woo completely because it's always been too salty and dry for me.


Hi WC - I've got to check the place out! Thanks for the recommendation.
