Dynasty Dragon @ Brem Mall, Kepong

We celebrated my sis-in-law's birthday at Dynasty Dragon last Sunday. Hubby chose the venue due to its crab promotion. However, when we got there, we discovered that the crabs were small and not worth the hassle of cracking the shells to get to the flesh. Too much work for too little meat.

We passed the crab and opted instead for their specialty dishes.

Barbecued pork ribs in plum sauce - RM18

The pork in plum sauce was tender with a tangy taste. Mother-in-law found it hard, though. Perhaps it's not an appropriate dish for someone without their natural grinders.

Double-boiled Spinach in Herbal Soup - RM12

The waitress recommended the Double-boiled Spinach in Herbal Soup when mother-in-law asked for soft, easy to chew vegetables. The soup was full of flavour. Not of herbal, but of anchovies and century eggs. There's nothing herbal about the soup at all, other than the presence of some kei chee (wolfberries).

Steamed Egg with Crab Meat and Diced Fish - RM12

The Steamed Egg with Crab Meat and Diced Fish had a layer of gravy on top, unlike any other steamed egg we've ever had. Although it had plenty of crab meat and was delicious, I could hardly find any diced fish in it. Perhaps it was one of those strips of meat in the egg??

Claypot Beancurd with Salted Fish - RM15

This was the only non-specialty dish on their menu, and was chosen by hubby. Although the name of the dish sounds a little exotic (salted fish with beancurd is not  a usual combination), it turned out to be a rather ordinary fare. A little disappointing, I think. 

Other than this little letdown, I loved the others, with the spinach and steamed egg being my favourites.
