Excellent experience at Cafe Yulong

I've been quietly lurking for a while and enjoying many helpful suggestions from Chowhounders. I went to Cafe Yulong tonight for dinner, and had such a wonderful experience I want to report back.

I had the following dishes:
- "onion pancake" (= scallion pancake)
- fish and leek dumplings
- zha jiang noodles
- Hunan-style lamb

The scallion pancake was amazingly good. The dough was nice and chewy and yet flaked in to layers beautifully. The dumplings were also excellent -- I really enjoyed the contrast in textures between the delicate fish and the "toothy" dumpling wrapper. The zha jiang noodles were tasty, but the noodles were a bit more cooked than I would have liked. The Hunan style lamb was fine, but not up to the standard set by the rest of the meal.

This came to about $35, and was more than enough food for 2, though would not have been enough for 3. The waiter was really nice, and the service was very quick and professional.

  1. Thanks for stepping into the light and posting! I've enjoyed Cafe Yulong in the past, but had one bad experience there. Maybe it's time to go back. I have loved the fish dumplings before.

    1. Cafe Yulong and Chef Liu both in MV?
      Mountain View not Mill Valley
