Campo De Dragon is located in a fairly heavy tourist area, around the corner from the Lisboa and in close proximity to budget hotels like the Beverly Plaza, Fortuna, President and Metropark.
For whatever reason it’s never really caught on with travellers though, which is both strange and a shame, since it’s one of the best Chinese restaurants in town.
I went there at lunch with my good friend Wang Jian and we pretty much stuck to dim sum, ordering 7 different kinds, as well as a big beautiful dish of fresh sashimi ($88).
All of the dim sum was spectacular, in particular the Shanghai Soup Pork Dumplings (灌汤小龙包 $23), Thai Eggplant (泰式酿茄子 $23), Shrimp Wraps (黑木耳鲜虾肠 $30),
The Shrimp Dumplings (聚龙虾饺皇 $30), Abalone Fish Ball (鲍鱼粒咸水角 $21), and Shrimp Rolls (木鱼丝虾春卷 $26) were also of highest quality as well.
The only thing we didn’t care for was the Red Taro Cake (红米香芋糕 $18) which was way too dry and hard.
Even though we went there on the October 1st national holiday and the place was pretty busy, service didn’t suffer and everything was handled quickly and efficiently.
The price was right too, only $305, which is great value in Macau for two people dining anywhere, anytime.
I much prefer Chinese restaurants on the street to those located in big hotel casinos and places like Campo De Dragon are the reason why. If it’s good enough for the locals, it’s good enough for me, and I will definitely return in the future.
