Square Meal Review of Loong Kee ?

Head north from Shoreditch up Kingsland Road & you’ll pass a string of Vietnamese restaurants. It’s worth continuing as far as Loong Kee, though, as this is one of the more interesting eateries on the Pho Mile – if not one of the prettiest (in spite of a recent makeover). Ignore the shades-of-beige colour scheme & acres of veneer, & concentrate on the food. Frogs’ legs with salt & chillies, papaya & dried beef salad, shaking beef & the house special banh cuon (steamed rolls) are all worth a try. Now under new management, Loong Kee seems to have lost a little of its mojo (the dining room is certainly quieter), but has kept prices low & remains BYO.

  1. We headed for Loong Kee Café at the far end of the Vietnamese strip. We’ve been there once before and enjoyed our meal. I had particularly fond memories of their bahn cuon (steamed rice rolls), which don’t appear on every menu. The restaurant itself is pretty basic in terms of furnishings, but was almost half full when we arrived, so obviously this doesn’t deter anyone. If anything, you know it’s not going to cost you an arm and leg! They also allow BYO, so come prepared. We didn’t bother and instead stuck to their Vietnamese beer, which was itself a bargain at just £2.80 per bottle...
