Long’s Noodle House is located on Main street right beside Au Petit Cafe. Both of these places are very busy and there are line ups during peak hours. I came here for a family lunch as we heard it has some pretty darn good xiao long bao. We made a reservation since it was for a large party. As the traffic was very busy, we called ahead to let them know we would be 15 minutes late. They were very accommodating and the table was still there as we arrived.
There is paid parking in the front and free parking in the street behind the restaurant.
The interior is basic and there aren’t too many seats. Always make a reservation.
Wine Chicken comes in a little cute jar. Inside is a bunch of chicken pieces marinated in wine and is slightly warm. Its one of the popular items on the menu. The pieces were tender and deliciously soaks up the wine flavour. Kids usually don’t like this dish, but its more for older people. My little sister refused to eat it since there’s alcohol.
Yellow Fish with Seaweed is pretty awesome. It has the yellow fish covered in a seaweed batter. The seaweed has a prominent taste and I was surprised it went so well together. Mmmmmm highly recommended.
Crispy rice with salty egg sauce was another strange dish, but it was surprisingly good too. The fried crispy rice is on top and the salty egg sauce is on the bottom. It’s salty, its fatty, its crunchy, and it’s quite addictive.
Xiao Long Bao comes with 6 pieces. It is packed full of soup and really delicious. One of the good XLB in town.
Eel noodle in soup was an interesting dish. I never would have thought of ordering this. It was good and definitely a good items share among the table.
Beef Roll has the five spiced meat, cilantro and cucumber inside. I found it different from other places as the wrap is much softer.
Hot and Sour soup came last and tasted good. This probably should have been ordered early in the meal, but we didn’t mind that we had this last.
Overall, Long’s Noodle House is a great place for some good Shanghainese food. The prices are fair and the food is just great.
