Latest Dragon City news and reviews

Wonton soupJM ate the General Tso's chicken with  pork fried rice, an egg roll, and a soda.
Nichole ate the chicken/shrimp/veg special with pork fried rice, wonton soup, and a soda.
The bill was $14, or $7/person, plus tip.
JM gave Dragon City a B+; Nichole gave Dragon City a C (see our grading rubric).

Dragon City is a strip-mall mom & pop Chinese restaurant. We got a couple lunch specials and ate in the smallish dining room, which also houses a full-size keyboard probably used more for piano practice than, say, Piano Man-type stylings, based on the stacks of etude books set on top, but who knows.  What happens in Dragon City stays in Dragon City.

JM liked his meal just fine. It would have been easy to make a saucy chicken dish too sweet, but this had good flavor. Nichole just thought "bad, bland, brown."

If Dragon City is Cleveland, Jordandal Cookhouse is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That is to say, last Thanksgiving we leaned on Jordandal Cookhouse for most of our feast (it was delicious). So we could see ourselves stopping in at Dragon City for a quick hot meal en route to a freezer-stocking trip, but Dragon City itself might not be a destination.
