Leong's Legend Continues


26-27 Lisle Street
London
WC2H 7BA

C took me here for dinner - the original Leong's Legend is just around the corner but I guess they've expanded into another location, hence tacking on "Continues" to the name, which is funny. Really great atmosphere - little tables with low lighting and lots of dark wood - and the prices are ridiculously low. We had Taiwanese beef noodles (niu rou mian), sticky rice with pork, soup dumplings (xiao long bao) and tofu stuffed with prawns. Delicious! I suppose I could nitpick and say the noodles were a little more done than I would ideally like, but then the broth and the falling-apart tender beef more than made up for that. Plus, the soup dumplings were actually full of soup - probably the best I have had so far in London, not that I've been on a hunt for soup dumplings or anything. Ate everything, which is why my version of a "diet" is so incredibly unsuccessful, but how can people leave food behind when it tastes so good? Maybe I need to go to less tasty restaurants (yeah, right).
