September 23, 2008 – Dragon City (Verona)

This was Kevin’s choice, on the basis that he’s got a VAHS discount card.

Pat says: This is a carry out place with a few tables on the side, not a restaurant that has carry out.  We ate in, anyway.  If you’re looking for good service and a pleasant dining experience, never mind about Dragon City.  If you plan to eat in, I”d suggest bringing your own tableware and glasses.  I had shrimp egg foo yung and Kevin had sweet & sour chicken with fried rice and egg roll.  We all split an order of crab rangoon.  These were terrific – really good filling with a nice crab flavor.  The egg foo yung was also very good – thick patties with a crispy outside and lots of shrimp.  Not too greasy.  It’s too bad that this restaurant doesn’t have a little bit nicer place to sit and eat.  I’ll give Dragon City a 6 out of 10, but with an actual dining room and waitstaff, that would be much higher.

erin says: I knew this place was probably not a sit-down restaurant when I couldn’t find any info on it online.  If your’e tired of Chang Jiang and you live somewhere near Verona, give it a try.  It’s got the same “Chinese restaurant in a box” decor and menu as all of the other area Chinese takeout places.  The food seemed better than average, so I might elect to order from Dragon City next time Brian is craving takeout Chinese.  I had a chicken with cashew nuts combination plate.  I enjoyed the crab rangoon, which seemed to have more onion flavor and less cream cheese filling than most (somehow that wasn’t a bad thing).  5 out of 10, but I’m starting to think we need a takeout or fast food category, because I’d rate it pretty high for takeout.
