Firewood cafe-pizza & Long Life noodle in METREON SF

Han Lukito | Dec 29, 2003 06:39 PM

Ordered the pizza with pancetta and arugula. Pizza is thin crust and taste good. But still fall short compared to Cheeseboard in Berkeley or my other fave is the (gulp) Roundtable pizza joint in Hayward. About $8

Everyone else seemed to have somekinds of pizza or pastas.

At Long Life, ordered the Marco Polo. The noodle was about the size of spaghetti but slightly different texture maybe (egg noodle). It was topped with ground pork in a dark soy, green onions and generous cucumber juliennes. No broth. It's decent but nothing spectacular. About $8

The double happiness is a large bowl of thin egg noodles, many large wontons with probably pork fillings but lacked the whole shrimps, some bok choys, plenty of sliced roast chicken and generous amount of broth that had a dark brown colour probably due to soy sauce. The broth taste is ok but not that great IMO. Nothing compared to Gold Medal wonton soup in Oakland. I probably will not reorder this again.
