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 sautÃ©ed 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.
