My son Matt and I enjoyed the Duck Noodle dish at the Long Fung Chinese Restaurant.
The Dawn on the Amazon Cafe is closed on Sunday. On Sunday we eat out at one of our favorite restaurants in Iquitos. Marmelita was visiting with her family. This time my son Matt and I were hungry for Chinese food. We flagged down a motocar and asked to be driven to the Plaza 28 of July for S /1.50 soles. Across the street from the plaza, on the south-east side is Long Fung, arguably the best Chinese Restaurant in Iquitos. The address is San Martin # 458. They have new chairs. Nice.
Matt ordered the Caldo de Gallina con Verduras, or A Simple Chicken Soup with Vegetables for S/ 14 or around $5. We decided to experiment with something we have never tried before. We agreed on the Tallarin con Pato, or the Duck Noodle Dish for S/ 22 soles, approximately $7.86.
I’ve eaten better Chinese noodles but rarely better duck. The duck, vegetables, and sauce were delicious, but the noodles didn’t get it for me. Next time I’ll choose duck in a different recipe with Long Fung’s great fried rice and hope for the best.
I’ll let you know. Or better yet, why don’t you let me know? Leave a comment with your recommendation for Chinese Food in Iquitos. Matt and I will give it a try.
