Chinatown #2 – Long Sang

9 Sep

When we walked out of China Court, Ron said that next time we will go to a better Chinese restaurant. I was quite happy with China Court, but Ron said that he eat there with his Japanese girlfriend and she was amazed from their Fish. Three weeks later we found ourselves in Long Sang, located in Allenby Street. With no hesitations, Ron asked for the “Black menu” and our journey began.

Wonton Dumplings

We have started with Wonton dumplings filed with meat and Chinese salad. The dumplings, escorted by tasty sauce, melted in our mouth. The sweet salad wasn’t very interesting but it was there just to add some vegetables to the dinner.

Shahar, didn’t eat with us on our previews Chinese experience, decide to check the “Peking Duck” dish. Ron and I have shared a dish from the black menu – Seafood and noodles soup. I must admit that although I liked the dish on China Court, it was much better here. The duck was sliced to thicker pieces was much juicy. The sauce, pancakes and vegetables that were severed with it were quite similar.

The soup was amazing. and spicy. I usually don’t eat soup in the hot and humid summer of Tel Aviv, but this dish was perfect for me. The soup includes Shrimps, Calamari and noodles cocked in a spicy broth. Ron said that was a bit to spacy for him but I thought it was good amount.

We didn’t ordered any desert but we were served complimentary Watermelon and Melon that were just the right fit or desert after the hot soup.

The next time we will have eager for Chinese food – we will definitely come back to here.

Quick Jump to Chinatown – China Court

29 Jul

For my birthday, Ron bought me original chopsticks from Japan. For a while we were planning to use them somewhere and we were looking for an occasion and a location. The occasion was end of school year for Ron and the location was China Court – a place that we heard a lot of from Shelly, our manager at Microsoft.

When you enter the place you feel the 80’s at their best. The pink napkin on the plates, the green tablecloth and a family restaurant make you understand that you are in right place for some authentic food.

Tsingtao Beer

We decided to escort the meal with a Chinese beer named Tsingtao. Then we started with corn soup which was very rich and thick. In addition we ordered Wonton Dumplings. The dumplings were fried and felt tasteless and therefore our least favourite dish in the meal.

Until now, we were just playing. The real reason we came to this place was the Peking duck that was highly recommended by Shelly (and for a good reason). The duck is cooked and taken out of its bones. It is severed with thin pancakes, cucumber & spring onion and an amazing sauce. In order to eat the duck at its best you need to take a pancake, put some duck on it, cucumber & spring onion, top it with the sauce and roll the pancake. Each of us ate several of these pancake, although we were feeling full, we still had some leftovers.
