14. November 2015: Restaurant & Club Dragon-i

| January 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

The dragon-i is apparently not only one of the best clubs of Hong Kong but also one of the best restaurants. And I must say the number of dishes you can select from for your evening is quite extensive. As we were a party of six people we decided to try quite a few different things starting with “Braised Beef Belly and Tendon white Radish with Chu Hou Paste sauce served in clay hot pot” (248 HKD). As you can see, the dish was steaming hot but it was also quite aromatic. I’d say it was not the best quality meat but it was absolutely rich.


I was not so sure what the second dish was – “Pregnant Women’s Fried Rice” (160 HKD). In any case, it was quite yummy. The “Braised Fillet of Garoupa with BBQ Pork, Ginger, Spring Onion and Beancurd in Casserole” (238 HKD) was fine as well but I personally liked the beef more.


Given we were in a place were kobe is geographically closer than to Europe, we decided to try the “Kobe Beef Tartar” (418 HKD) and I must say it was a huge disappointment. I mean, it was prepared nicely, looked nicely, no question, but it definitely did not taste like much. As good as cooked beef is, as huge a disappointment was the tartare.


One of my favourite dishes that evening was the “Deep Fried Chicken in Chinese Style” (208 HKD). It was a bit too dry for my personal gusto but the flavour was intense and lovely.


Unfortunately, I forgot to take note of what these guys were. However, I remember them to be quite dough-y but overall fine in taste.


One of my obvious favourites was the Edamame in the beginning – definitely nothing on the “special” side but a good starter as always.


The audience in the dragon-i is quite exclusive and when we decided to leave after dinner (to return later which we did not tell the staff), they were quite surprised and persuaded us to stay longer, respectively to return (as they apparently could not understand how one could leave the most in club of Hong Kong). The service was friendly throughout our stay, however, sometimes a bit slow.

When we returned later for clubbing, the place was full and the place was pumping. So definitely a great place to go clubbing – especially for Western people and people with money as the prices are quite steep.
