Duck House, known as Lu Din Gee in Chinese, is a Taiwanese-Beijing restaurant that happens to specialize in duck. They pull out all the stops: crisp squares of roasted duck skin, thin flour pancakes, a sweet and salty bean sauce and thin slices of scallion. You can choose to have your bird prepared three ways for $52.95: the whole duck itself with the pancakes, duck meat sautéed with bean sprouts and duck bone soup. But if you just want the duck itself, minus the soup and extra dish, the a la carte version only goes for $35.95. One hour advanced notice is required. 501 S. Atlantic Blvd., Monterey Park; 626-284-3227.
