Dragon-I: Not Just a Clubbing Venue!
Night life at Dragon-I takes on new meaning with the introduction of the Dinner Tasting Menu by Executive Chef Ryan Chui - and an amazing deal at that, too. At the price of only HK$688 + 10% for 6 sharing plates enough for 4 people and HK$1032 +10% for 9 plates per 6 people, these new tasting menus are a serious steal. I honestly never thought I'd be eating a tasty meal and enjoying a civilised conversation on the same sofa that once sagged under my dancing weight as I chugged down one too many 10% cranberry- 90% Belvedere mixers. (If anyone from work is reading this: just kidding, I don't do that).
If you're an avid fan of Dragon-I's clubbing aspect, I recommend you to have dinner on Friday or Saturday night, because as an extra perk, that grants you automatic free entry into the club. Now onto the food - and FYI these photos are NOT my own, and are courtesy of Dragon-I's official press photos. Not all dishes pictured either, but my favourites from the night!
This dish, the Sun-dried Scallops and Bamboo Pith soup, was so utterly comforting and delicious - I could probably have like four bowls in a single sitting. Full-flavoured and with that awesome thick, savoury texture, I really enjoyed this!
This is the Poached Chicken Flavored with Root Ginger, a tasty Chinese classic. The chicken was very tender, and again bursting with flavours from the sauce.
The Sliced Spicy Beef in Szechuan-Style was just the right amount of spicy without it being too overwhelming, and had a nice, tender bite. I actually would have loved to have this (and the above poached chicken) with some rice.
The Chili Pork Dumplings was one of the table's favourites of the night. The dumplings arrive slathered with a delicious home-made chili sauce that really compliments the filling.
The Pregnant Women's Fried Rice! Not really sure why it's named that, but it's as good as traditional Chinese fried rice interpretations go.
If you're looking for a stylish and conveniently located restaurant for modern Chinese fare after work, this is the place to go. Despite the heavy look of each dish, you actually come away from the meal feeling full without the bloat - so it actually makes for a great pre-going out dinner with a group of friends!
