DRAGON-i OPENS SECOND OUTLET IN PENANG

Dragon-I, the popular chain of Shanghainese restaurants from Klang Valley, now has a second outlet in Penang. The first opened in Queensbay Mall in 2008 with a menu that contained not just classic dishes but also quite a few new ones. It’s certainly proving very popular with Penangites, as the queues which form outside at mealtimes show.

According to CEO Henry Yip, the second outlet on the Lower Ground Floor of Gurney Plaza’s new wing was opened in response to popular demand. “Penang people really like good food,” he said at the soft opening last week, “and we would like to thank them for their support. Now they can enjoy it on both sides of the island!


So if you’re a fan of their popular Siew Lung Bao (steamed meat dumplings), its skin so fine and delicate it’s all you can do to not to poke a hole in it with your chopsticks before it gets to your mouth so you can suck out the soup prior to consuming it with a few fine lengths of fresh ginger and vinegar, you no longer have to drive to Queensbay Mall just to eat it.

Their signature “open kitchen” where all their skilled Hong Kong chefs prepare the aforementioned bao and other specialities like their popular hand-made lamian (hand-pulled noodles) is still there, but the seating is divided into two parts: a smaller area just in front of the open kitchen, and across the public walkway, the larger main 1800 sq ft dining. The service personnel are kitted out in their easily-recognisable chic red and black outfits, with matching smart décor.

The carefully-chosen menu includes a selection of authentic dishes from Shanghai, Beijing and Szechuan, as well as all their popular signature dishes including a delicious Spicy Szechuan Lamian served in a smooth, slightly peanutty gravy – a bit of Chilli Padi just adds that extra depth. The rice dishes are excellent, and, as my policy is one should never leave the table without “dotting the heart” without something sweet for afters, so are their desserts.

Dragon-i’s policy is nutritious and healthy food, so their food is prepared with no added MSG, uses low salt and less oil.

Many ingredients like vegetables, flour, soya sauce and cooking oil are imported from China and Hong Kong to ensure authenticity and consistency in taste.

For the time being, the new Gurney outlet also includes an exclusive selection of “Chefs Recommendations” which includes some Shanghainese dishes you won’t find at any other outlet at the moment like their Pan-fried Meat Buns served in a stone bowl.
