Dragon-i, Selangor Malaysia

14:30 27/07/2013  An unexpected meetup with our friend at Sunway Pyramid Mall in Selangor, Malaysia drag us to Dragon-i. Our friend got a positive feedback about this resto, and being a foodie herself, she can attest they serve authentic Chinese Food. Though she warned us, that  food range maybe bit pricey but it doesn’t break off our gaiety. For two reasons, it’s payday ( you know the drill, if you been follower of this blog). And it’s been a while when our taste buds savored an authentic Chinese food. So a little persuasion lured us to Long Ti Chuan Ren, name of the Restoran in Chinese.

We don’t waste much time to decide and immediately jump to the museum like entrance of Dragon-i.  Someone was obviously excited and lead us directly to the dining hall.

The stylish classic-modern fusion ambiance of this restaurant make it more delightful to the eye while enjoying your authentic Chinese meal.

Everything was elegant, from the suspended ritzy lighting,  snazzy cushioned chairs, wooden antique like tables and elaborate dragon design wall. All we could see was pleasant to the eyes.

A medium size plate, Chinese Spoon, flower shape saucer, Wooden type Chopsticks and wet tissues was laid individually beforehand on our table. 

Before we utter our orders, a small plate of steamed garlic peanuts was handed on our table as an appetizer. The food servants had already a clue that we’re starving. The softness of peanut, made us think this had been steamed for so many hours to achieve this kind of tenderness.

After a few chit chat, our main dish was served. Fried Hand Sliced La Mian with Sliced Beef  and Steam Rice with Pork Chops and Potatoes (below). The fresh hand pulled noodles of La Mian make a big difference of it’s taste. A hint of light soy sauce, topped with fresh bean sprouts and garnish made this meal extra-ordinary. The tender sliced beef complements well on this course. It’s sweet and it’s medium spicy kick made us more crave of this saucy noodle dish.

The Steam Rice with Pork Chops and Potatoes didn’t impress us at all, and something is missing.  But I’ll look forward to have second look on this dish. It might be overshadowed by our first bite of that flavorful noodle dish. 

For our side dish we got Crispy Spring Rolls and Steamed Meat Dumplings with Celery. Spring Rolls or Popiah as what they called it here in Malaysia, had reminded me of our  version Lumpia. The crispiness and flavorsome stuffings of Spring rolls was enough to compensate our disappointment from the other dish. The Steamed meat dumplings with celery had caught us to by a surprise. The newly mince meat stuff on this hand made dumplings boost it’s natural flavor. The simplicity of this dish make it as winner.  

Ice Jasmie Tea With Hawaian Passion Fruit was a perfect pair to wash down the delish food. The jasmine flavor was overpowered by the tangy-sweetness of Passion fruit, which Summer gave a two thumbs up.

For our dessert we got Vanilla Sago Cream with Mixed Fruits. The best thing about this sweet course was, it didn’t rely on it’s artificial sweetness. It call came naturally from the fruits and the sago cream had magically augmented it’s taste. Who wants some?
Dragon-i somehow exceeds our expectation and 70RM++  meal was all worth it. We just found out, their chefs was came from mainland China. Thus, makes sense of it’s Chinese food authenticity. We commend this restaurant if you’re looking for that bona fide Chinese treat.

    incidentally, it was at dragon-i, queensbay mall branch where i treated tina & gabby the first time they set foot in penang. a bit pricey to some standards but reasonable to me.

  2. Agree Doc Gelo, it's reasonable!

    I would love to try the Crispy Spring Rolls! I just want to compare the taste to our Lumpia here in the Philippines.

    One thing I noticed though, the pictures were not as saturated as before.

    How would you rate this restaurant in contrast with other similar Chinese restaurants in Malaysia? The ambiance looked authentic. How about the food?

  6. omg nagutom ako ng sobra sa La Mian… and those spring rolls look so heavenly! =)

  7. Love the dessert with the dragon fruit, but not the jasmine tea. I once ordered a jasmine tea at a food stall in HK and it didn't impress me. Taste like I'm drinking a perfume out of the cup, might be the strong scent of jasmine 🙂

  8. Waah mouthwatering! I love the spring rolls and vanilla sago! nomnom!
