Many years back I have been to Dragon Hut, at that time, there was 1 day in the week where they cleared some of the tables and make way for some ballroom dancing activities, somehow it seemed surreal now that I am writing this piece, did I dreamt it all ? Anyway, fast forward to present moment, we are cozily seated in this airy non conditioned restaurant, and beside us is the lake…not a bad environment …
There were three of us and we decided to go for vegetables, a tofu dish and steamed fish plus rice.
Braised beancurd with petola, mushrooms and fishpaste (small portion , RM12), the tofu was firm yet supple, complimented by juicy, melt in the mouth petola ( sorry, I am not a fan of petola, I dislike the ‘sandy’ taste), add some fish paste and then mushroom. This dish was tasty and we all liked it.
We spent a bit of time to decide on the fish and finally decided on steamed teochew style ( RM50) . The fish had a bit of a earthy flavour which dampen the enjoyment of it. the fish was fresh though and plus tofu squares, ginger and salted vegetables- the flavour was good.
Sauted celery, lotus root and black fungus with almond flakes ( RM12) – the dish was well presented and I am glad to say that it tasted as good as it looked. The combination of crispy lotus root, spongy black fungus and crunchy celery was infallible, and topped that with perfectly toasted almond flakes which add another layer of flavour to the dish. Perfecto ! My favourite dish for the night.
The total meal, plus 3 rice and drinking water and with a 5% service charge came to a bit less than RM85. I think the price was pretty reasonable for a restaurant kinda setting.
Overall, an enjoyable meal..
