The Dragon : Soft Opening !








Yesterday I was invited to the soft launch of "The Dragon" Japanese  Cuisine located in Jabriya , on the 4th ring road.





Starting with wasabi covered cashews & a variety of drinks to choose from I got lemon and orange juice, my friends got strawberry smoothie which was spiked with coconut milk , and apple lime and red bull juice. I didn't try it myself but everyone was more than happy with their drinks .






Next up was the salads, Yasai salad and salmon avocado  salad I didn't try the Yasai since it had cucumber and sweet corn ( I don't eat both) but my friend said it was really good and the spicy dressing added a nice taste to the salad overall, the salmon avocado salad was good light and tasty not too heavy .




For appetizers, we got kani furai and popcorn shrimps I liked the popcorn shrimps it was crunch from the outside soft and tasty from the inside, didn't try the Kani furai though.



 




Blue & Green Dragon


The Golden Dragon



We tried a variety of rolls, Eight headed Dragon , Blue & Green Dragon  & Golden Dragon the latter was my favourite drizzled with sweet yet spicy sauce . I tried one of the each rolls and the presentation was all in all very neat !



Moving on to the main courses we got Hata ebi with spinach its stir fried hammour, prawns and shitake mushroom which was sauteed to perfection served with sticky white rice on the side , the other dish was crispy spicy beef which I didn't try to be honest.




And finally the happy ending was , The Green Team , Red Dragon & Strawberry trifle usually at the end of having a Japanese feast I prefer having green tea icecream but the green team did it for me it was the best from the other two desserts it tasted like a tiramisu but infused with green tea instead of coffee.




Overall it was an interesting experience, not to forget the breathtaking interior  symbolizing an actual size dragon and dragon bones chandeliers , wonderful seating ;cozy and very welcoming the weather was very nice so the windows were fully opened, the incoming breeze was pleasant !

Thanks to the Dragon owner for the invitation , as I was informed it would be opened to public within next week.
