Dragon Room Chinese Take Away, South Melbourne Market
The girls and I headed over to South Melbourne Market for lunch, there was plenty of sun for a change and made for some lovely alfresco dining. Dragon Room is the second Chinese eating option to Mama Tran but isn’t necessarily second with great value, great tasting cuisine. I went for the large lunch combo which is the usual pick your base and two dish affair. Mine was rice with the sweet and sour pork and chicken and vegetables. It’s a mixed bag much like it’s a mixed dish.
I must have been doing something right that day though as the sweet and sour pork was fresh from the fryer and tantalising crisp and satisfying. The sauce was a bit too goopy but tasted reasonably familiar. I had a weird bit in my chicken but otherwise that and the rice was good. After a hard morning of dealing with some interesting client characters the lunch and the sun was a pleasant mid point break. Here’s waiting for summer.
