Do You Feel Lucky?
Perhaps destiny has drawn you to Lucky Dragon, but its signage catches the eye first. An inscription of yellow on crimson welcomes passersby, along with a splashy display of the day’s specials. Inside, take your pick amongst tables spread out across two floors reflected in wall mirrors. Just don’t be surprised if there’s a line-up come lunchtime – it’s the Dragon’s busiest hour.
Starters are only the Beginning
Starters include a variety of soups – hot and sour is a specialty – spring rolls and dumplings. Several variations of congee are also offered, including sliced beef, chicken and seafood. Amongst the mains, there is a multitude of duck, pork, beef and chicken dishes. Vegetarians are wooed with many bean curd and vegetable options. Further temptations include a plethora of rice dishes and noodle soups. And for the insatiable, why not face the challenge of an all-you-can-eat Taiwanese hot pot?
Accommodating all dining groups, reasonably-priced family dinners are offered for parties of two to six. Selections of appetizers and mains can then be topped up with a range of sweets. Desserts include milk-egg and rice puddings and a medley of deep-fried fruits and ice-cream. To wash down you meal with a specialty, try the Chinese flowering quince milk. Sure, there’ll be plenty of choices left untried – but isn’t that what return visits are for?
