Fortune House in Beverly Grove serves some of our favorite Chinese-American food in the area, like soy-sauce-tinged chow mein, orange peel chicken, and siu mai the size of tangerines. But the best excuse for a sit-down meal here is the reasonably priced peking duck. A whole one costs $57 and is carved tableside. The skin is so crispy it shatters like candy, the breast meat is juicy, and it comes with a tin of steamed bao buns, plus the usual accompaniments like green onion and sweet bean sauce. And then there’s the bonus meal, which consists of the bird’s legs and back meat in their salty drippings that you snack on like ribs.
