Long Provincial Vietnamese Restaurant Restaurant Review: Offering an original, sophisticated spin on Vietnamese cuisine, Long Provincial Vietnamese Restaurant is the downtown sister of the International District’s Tamarind Tree. The interior, with its high ceilings and earth-toned walls, is tranquil but with a hip vibe. Portions are generous, dishes are attractively presented, and ingredients are always fresh. Choose from the house specials such as the crisp crêpe that's a cross between an omelet and a pastry brimming with shrimp, bean sprouts and vegetables, ready to top with Asian basil and wrap inside lettuce leaves. Or enjoy the exotic soft-shell crab/banana-blossom salad. There's also a salad roll stuffed with shrimp and/or pork and fresh herbs, a turmeric-coconut rice cake, and lily blossom steamed halibut. For dessert, try the tempting grilled banana cake or roasted coconut ice cream. For a light dinner, order grilled pork rolls and satays at happy hour. A full bar provides a range of libations.
