This is another blog post done entirely with the iPhone, including the pictures and video.
It came as a shock to many people to learn that Wang’s had closed. I found out only last week. The new place is called Xu’s. Apparently new owner. The new lady in charge look very familiar but I just can’t remember where I had seen her before.
So here I am trying Xu’s XLB. They call this the Baiyulan XLB which is $4 for a basket of … five XLBs.
Business is as brisk as it was when it was Wang’s. Unlike Wang who had three workers doing the pleading, they have only one.
I did notice that they still have the CRA sticker which Wang’s won the XLB award in 2010. That’s not right. :-)
Verdict: Soup was flavorful and so was the meat. Skin is not ultra thin but who cares because the soup and meat just dominated the taste. Pretty good. However the soup was not scalding hot as most XLB should be.
I wonder where the old Wang’s is now. I tried asking the lady but she seems to be uncomfortable with my question.
Ok look at the customers … there are quite a number of people waiting in line.
Update: I asked the lady again about where I had seen her before. I took the opportunity to ask again when I returned the basket. I think she said she was at the Bayulan (hence the name of her XLBs) on “bar-ker lu” in Richmond. I think “bar-ker lu” is Parker Road. Baiyulan is a Chinese name … anyone knows which Baiyulan it is?
