A return to the Dragon Garden

Dragon Garden, beef tendon rice

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 fulfil a a much appreciated need with their tasty and frills free food that came in generous portions. Besides, anywhere that offers offal raises my brows 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. More offal and tendons it was then. I had almost forgotten the size of the mountains of carbs they heaped over the plate, topped by one's choice of cow parts with a helping of token boiled greens (you get lettuce here, it's always the same) for dietary 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.
