Dragon is a legendary 4 legged scaled creature in Chinese myth and the fifth celestial serpentine-like creatures in Chinese Zodiac.
Crab is an exoskeleton creature and seafood with a single pair of claws.
What are both creatures going to do with my post? Heard about Dragon-i before? What about Hairy Crab? Dragon-i is currently having Hairy Crab Set meal with only RM 138++.
Hairy crab?? Nah.. I am not a big fan of crab especially the HAIRY one .
Before I shocked you with what I have eaten, let me share a little about the atmosphere. This Shanghainese restaurant has western-chinese décor with clean and slightly noisy environment.
I particularly like the transparent kitchen. Why? Well duh, at least you get to see how the food is prepared and no cockroach or mice running around..hehe..
If you recalled, I have no idea on the signature dishes in Sakura – Since 1977 but now I do. The signature dishes here are Xiao Long Bao (shanghainese steamed meat dumpling) and La mian (hand-pulled noodles).
I didn’t tried La mian but I ordered custard bun and xiao long bao as a starter.
Don’t drool when I said this. The melting hot custard bun is probably the best that I ever tasted. The xiao long bao with thin skin and soupy meat is one of my favorite dishes in this restaurant.
If you follow my blog long enough, you know that 2 dishes will not fill my tummy.
So, I ordered Claypot Eggplant, Sweet and Sour Fish, Seafood Fried Rice and Mango Drink. Too much for one person? My tummy can fit 2-3 people portion
The Seafood fried rice has nothing special but the claypot eggplant is a remarkable dish. Personally, I like the salty bean with soy sauce gravy.
The sweet and sour fish is nicely cooked. Not too sweet and not too sour. It is a bit difficult to taste the fish texture as the fish is deep fried before serving with the sauce.
Let me see, I am about 80% full after I finished all these. 80%?? Oh yea.. but the downside is, I have to sacrifice about RM 95.20. Well, it is quite reasonable for a delicious dinner.
