Long's Noodle House Vancouver – Amazing soup dumplings

restaurants
Restaurants

"Long's Noodle House" Vancouver is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant serving up fantastic Shanghaiese food. I'm a fan of their soup dumplings and wine chicken.

On a quiet stretch of Main Street, sits Long's Noodle House, a hole in the wall restaurant serving up fantastic Shanghainese food. They're famous for their soup dumplings (xiao long bao) and wine chicken. I'm a big fan of their soup dumplings which come steaming to the table six at a time in bamboo baskets. Each is a delicate wrapper pipping hot with soup and tender pork. I always order extra because I can easily eat a whole basket myself, they're so good. While the soup dumplings are in your face with their flavour, the equally delicious wine chicken is all about the subtle flavours and texture of each bite. Also on the menu are other Shanghainese favourites like beef rolls, dan dan noodles in soup and Shanghai style stir fried thick noodles.

With only a handful of tables, expect a line during meal times. If you're a smaller group, don't be surprised if you're asked to share a table. Not only does it allow you to get seated quicker, but you can also see what your table mates are ordering to help you decide from their extensive menu. Remember to bring cash as they don't accept cards.
