We will be dining "Family Style," and will be divided up into 3 tables of 10. The food bill will be split evenly amongst all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. The goal for family-style dining is to allow for the entire group to sample as wide a variety of dishes as possible. If one or more attendees choose to order on their own, that limits the group's choices, which defeats the purpose of what Family-Style Dining is all about. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you.
Well, according to Eater LA, today is National Peking Duck Day, which only gives me another reason to chow down on some delicious crispy Peking Duck, and why don't we feast on a couple of Peking Ducks at Tasty Duck in San Gabriel? Tasty Duck, so far, prepares the best Peking Duck I've had in a long while. I find their ducks to have the crispiest skins without the excessive oil. I love their ducks more than the ones I had at Beijing Duck House, Duck House, A1 Seafood Restaurant, to name a few.
In addition to their renown Peking Duck, Tasty Duck also serves up a Baked Eel & Stick Rice dish, as well as a crispy fish in a sweet & sour sauce.
Yelp reviewers gave Tasty Duck an average rating of 3.50 Stars out of 5.00 Stars from over 71 reviews. You can read those reviews here:
