There are a few competing BBQ duck spots around Little Saigon, but Lien Hoa is our favorite. The cash-only spot is essentially a pick-up counter, so if you’re looking for a big-group dinner spot, Lien Hoa is not your place. That said, if you’re on your way home from work and aren’t in the mood to cook tonight, picking up a half duck or soy sauce chicken for later is a move we fully endorse. The duck itself is tender and slightly sweet, and the crispy skin provides the ideal amount of crunch. A full duck is only $20, and can easily be made into several meals.
