Excellent experience at Cafe Yulong

SamL | Feb 23, 2010 10:20 PM

I've been quietly lurking for a while and enjoying many helpful suggestions from Chowhounders. I went to Cafe Yulong tonight for dinner, and had such a wonderful experience I want to report back.

I had the following dishes:
- "onion pancake" (= scallion pancake)
- fish and leek dumplings
- zha jiang noodles
- Hunan-style lamb

The scallion pancake was amazingly good. The dough was nice and chewy and yet flaked in to layers beautifully. The dumplings were also excellent -- I really enjoyed the contrast in textures between the delicate fish and the "toothy" dumpling wrapper. The zha jiang noodles were tasty, but the noodles were a bit more cooked than I would have liked. The Hunan style lamb was fine, but not up to the standard set by the rest of the meal.

This came to about $35, and was more than enough food for 2, though would not have been enough for 3. The waiter was really nice, and the service was very quick and professional.
