Long's Noodle House, Shanghai food, XLB, Salty Egg Crispy Rice....Vancouver

Long's has been around for years. This little place has been quietly plugging away and serving up some of the best Chinese food in town. Sandy, co-proprietor and server could be one of the best servers I have ever seen: friendly, knowledgeable, fast and efficient. Their XLB is a standout - one of the best in town...very close to the top of the heap. (It could be a better place to get XLB than Lin's whose service record of late has been poor....they regularly forget parts of my order at Lin's).

I recommend the XLB, the Hot and Sour Fish Maw Soup, their unique Crispy Rice with Salty Egg Yolk (which goes very well with the Hot and Sour Soup), Fish with Pinenut, and their Chicken in Wine.

The flavours are clean and the food is prepared expertly (have a look the the XLB - perfect pleats, thin skin, plump with broth). They have a very focused menu (not the nearly 200 items you often would see in a Chinese restaurant in this town)...and everything I had had there over the years has been very good...and very inexpensive.
