Van Dragon Chinese Restaurant

Date Visited: May 18 2015

What I ate:


Pork Dumpling with Tobiko (Shiu Ma)

  • 7/10
  • Not bad – good amount of pork could have done with more shrimp
  • Good size as well – not too big and not too small


Braised beef tendon in Brown sauce

  • 7.5/10
  • The beef tendon was soft and slippery
  • The brown sauce tasted just like other places
  • Nicely seasoned


Spareribs and chicken claws with rice

  • 7/10
  • Spareribs were kind of small and dry
  • Chicken claws were okay – nothing special


XO fried radish cake with spicy XO sauce

  • 6/10
  • Disappointing
  • Too much flour not much radish
  • The XO sauce was also lacking – tasted mostly spicy but not very strong seafood flavour


Steamed milky bun with egg yolk

  • 6.5/10
  • Could have been more runny and more fragrant salty egg yolk
  • It’s a bit too sweet for me

Will come back? Maybe – you never know where elders want to go  

Summary: Dim sum is cheap and good size. Some of the dishes are a hit or miss. Service is quick and flavours are standard.
