After shopping at Costco we noticed East Dragon and wondered why we never tried this local restaurant. So, Saturday night we did just that. It is kind of hidden in the back of the Costco parking lot with a few other stores in a small little strip center. It is nicer inside than you would expect from the street. The place has quite a few tables for a small place and is very clean in appearance. We were very hopeful as we navigated thru the menu with choices of Chinese and sushi. Hubby was disappointed that there were no combo platters which we have come to expect. He started with the won ton soup ($1.85) and both of us had egg rolls. Some previous reviews mentioned the wonton soup as not being so good and it made us curious. It does have a unique taste different from other traditional wonton soups...an odd seasoning. I kinda liked it but Hubby still preferred others. The egg rolls were piping hot and were just okay. Does anyone put shrimp in egg rolls any more?...no shrimp. It was simply a hot greasy cabbage filled egg roll. We decided to split the Honey-moon couple dish as it captured our curiosity. Described as crepe with shrimp roll in chicken and house special sauce. ($12.75). When it came out we both stared at it for a bit trying to figure out exactly what to make of it. I guess I expected a seafood and chicken kind of pancake crepe or even a moo shu pork type pancake. But what came out was six pieces of a sweet type of breaded chicken with a piece of shrimp in the middle of each. The breading was similar to the breading on sweet and sour chicken...but not crispy. A very heavy salty plum type sauce empowered the entire dish. It was quite interesting but nothing I would ever order again. It fell apart with each bite and the chicken could have been more tender. The sauce was way too heavy. We really wanted to love this restaurant as this family run business looked like hard working people that take great pride in their restaurant. But unfortunately our search continues for the best Chinese restaurant in the area.
