Dragon Mama

Dragon Mama is a personal favourite of mine, a perennial go to in the winter of 2011, when I lived in the San Va for a month straight, churning out the first wave of the casino reviews.  Prices got me in the door at the start and have kept me coming back ever since.  With many good options under $40, it’s fantastic value for being located on the Street of Happiness.

Serving local Cantonese food, the main things on the menu are seafood ($38 to $88), stir fried noodles ($45 to $120) and rice served with meat, vegetables, or seafood ($34 to $88).  Less expensive selections like soup, dumplings and chicken wings are available for $22 to $38.

I usually go with some simple rice dish for $35 and leave a happy man, but decided to spend a bit more money for this review, ordering Chicken Soft Bone Dumplings ($38), Mushroom Noodles ($45), and Seafood Rice ($88).

True to form, nothing I had knocked me out, but at those prices it didn’t have to.  It’s just simple straightforward Cantonese food that tastes good, and I’ve never had a bad meal there.

As an added bonus, the menu is in English too so you won’t have to worry about communication problems.

In terms of budget restaurants, Dragon Mama is definitely worth trying out, and it’s especially viable for visitors, given its location on the very picturesque and tourist heavy Street of Happiness.
