Dinner at Dragon Pearl

The family and I have been to Dragon Pearl numerous times and when it comes to wanting to head to a buffet for dinner, this is it. For just a couple of dollars more per person (vs. other buffet restaurants) we always leave not only stuffed, but impressed with their food and service. There's a wide variety of food available to suit everyone. I only took photos of the dishes I ate, but there were lots more to choose from. The food is always fresh and the place is spotless.

Take a look!
Sushi rolls made with white and black rice: tempura shrimp, California roll, spicy salmon, avocado.
Salmon sashimi, which was super fresh and fatty and a fried wonton chip topped with spicy salmon

Clam chowder, which was unfortunately in need of more clam. Perhaps someone fished it all out?

Peking duck in a flour wrap, fried salt and chili shrimp and a golden seafood pocket

Roast beef, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding with au jus and a side of grilled green beans

Soup noodles in a beef broth- the noodles were hand pulled to order. I got to watch and it was super mesmerizing!
Cold platter: mussel, Thai chicken salad, coleslaw, olived, marinated mushrooms, cocktail shrimp, seaweed salad and mango salad

For dessert we all shared: Fried dough covered in burnt sugar (favourite!), flan, Chinese sugar donut (also a favourite), fudge brownie and tiramisu cake


We also shared: White chocolate mousse, burnt sugar pastry, Chinese donut, chocolate strawberry, cheesecake bite and a mini egg tart, which was still warm and so, so good!
Fortune cookies that came with the bill

This is what mine said. :)

Overall, we had a fabulous time! I can't wait to go back, but not for another couple of months. Buffets are only fun every few of months. Anymore than that, I think my body/system might rebel!
