Chef’s Corner with Philippe Chow

journeyPod recently enjoyed a tasting at Philippe Chow, an upscale Chinese restaurant in West Hollywood. The Seven Pound Peking Duck is a must and certainly worth the 45-minute wait. Inside scoop: Seven pounds sounds like a lot—it’s not. Trust us! A few other signature dishes from Chef Philippe included chicken satay skewers (the sauce alone is worth it!), and crispy seaweed, better known as “gambei”. And for dessert we enjoyed the most amazing fruit sorbet. Our fav: the red grape…with real pieces of grape skins.
