For starters, what could be a very cramped and commotion filled environment has a very relaxed element to the atmosphere which is a well needed relief from the hustle and bustle just outside the restaurant’s unassuming doors. The interior décor is elegant, yet simple, as Nine Dragons is filled with rich colors, deep rosewood panels, and gorgeous artwork from a variety of disciplines.
My cohort for the dining affair was my good friend, and regular dining campanion,
In my experience, there are two types of Chinese restaurants in the country, the quick carry out specialists/buffets and the more complex meal authorities. After my meal at Nine Dragons, I firmly believe in falls into the latter category. With such a dense history of food and, honestly, a culinary heritage unlike any other it is easy to not rise to the occasion of Chinese food, especially when the something as simple as wrecking rice can completely obstruct the rest of the meal. Nine Dragons makes the task look effortless in the way in combines uncommon elements together, such as the caramel and ginger, and subtly layers the flavors of traditional favorites, a la the Canton Pepper Beef. All and all, this was a terrific meal, and I am sure to head back to Nine Dragons again.
