Dragon Tea House
Posted by greg on 07/24/2011
You know what Grandma cooks. She has her way of making certain dishes, she never disappoints and she always serves up generous portions with a smile.This is why you come to Dragon Tea House. When I come to eat here, I'm not expecting anything exotic or novel, I 'm coming here because I have a yen for Roast Pork w/ String Beans or Shrimp w/ Lobster sauce. I need some solid pieces of pork in my Won Ton soup, a crispy Egg Roll and some Chinese Brabequed Ribs..... and I want them to taste just like my Chinese Grandmother would have been making them everytime I ever ate them in her house. I want the bowls of wide flat crispy noodles to keep coming with old style Duck sauce and fresh hot mustard. This is a traditional Chinese restaurant from the decor to the menu to the service. Wherever I have lived I have been fortunate to find one of these that still endures and can be counted on to make your meal exactly like you expected it. Look for the window full of Christmas lights at the end of this otherwise non descript strip center on the southside of Commercial Blvd just a few minutes west of Federal Highway in Ft Lauderdale. No sushi here; no Thai ; no buffet.....this is the neighborhood joint that I fell in love with a child in the fifties. The carpets a bit worn but there's still table cloths, cloth napkins and leather booths. It's comfortable to dine here with friends and family... you're not worried about how your dressed, the size of the check or whether your meal will taste good. Kinda like eating at Grandma's. I've been eating here since my kids were in strollers (they are now graduating college) and have enjoyed consistently well prepared food served with the same love by the the same owners since we set foot in the Dragon Tea House.

Place is a little old (same owners for 28 years) but the food is down right good and at a great price. Try the General Tso chicken - nothing like I've ever had before. You can tell there was care in developing the sauce. My wife had the cashew chicken and was raving about how good it was. Definitely try this place.
