A return to the Dragon Garden

Truth be told, we harboured some sentiments for this place because we had stumbled upon it near the place we were staying and it did fulfill a very comforting niche of tasty and frills free food with generous portions. Not to mention that pretty much anywhere that offers offal raises my eyebrows and scores themselves one up in my book of good graces until proven otherwise.

So we hit this location again for our first evening meal, beaming ten miles wide after seeing that the place had not by some misfortune ended business. So more offal and tendons it was. I had almost forgotten the size of the mountains of carbs they heaped over the plate, topped by one's choice parts with a helping of token boiled greens (you get lettuce here, it's always the same) for dietry fibre. For the first time in a while, I had to admit that a single serving was way too much for me and I had to stop before I found myself keeling over from excessive rice and kuey teow washed down in milk tea and seaweed soup.  The beef tendons were great if a little inconsistent in the doneness and the little cow intestines were chewy and delicious as well.
