Soup-er bowls all year round



Whoever lived in the bungalow near the corner of Mills Avenue and Montana Street before the house joined the other commercial properties must have left a happy vibration, because the current tenants certainly seem glad to be there.

Kim Long Vietnamese Cuisine (1326 N. Mills Ave., 407-228-0031) has been open about five years. While you may not be impressed by the surroundings (it's a bit dark and not very modern), you'll stay for the quick, friendly service and the menu of almost 100 soup-bowls full of genuine Vietnamese flavors. The majority of items (like shrimp, pork and clear noodle soup) are $5.95 or less. If you want to splurge, try the unusual boneless duck and bamboo soup ($7.25) or a whole salted fish baked in a clay pot ($10.95).

It is quiet, family-run, authentic restaurants that make a community, and Kim Long does that neighborhood proud.
