My colleagues and I have been looking for a good Chinese place near work. We tried 1-6-8 Chinese on Turkey Lake as well as a place down on Westwood Drive and I-Drive, but didn’t really find anything we liked. This week we tried Dragon China in the Publix plaza on Sand Lake Blvd. It’s a small location in the strip mall, but when you walk in the place is clean and the people are nice.
We kept it simple and went with the lunch combinations (~$6). Each combo has an A or B option; A is the meal and rice, B is the meal, rice, and an egg roll or soup. We ordered the Pork with mixed vegetables, pork egg foo young, Mongolian chicken, and bourbon chicken as well as the wonton soup, hot and sour soup, and an egg roll. Additionally, for $1.50 you can add brown rice to any meal. The egg roll didn’t seem to be anything too special. The wonton soup was your basic chicken stock with scallion and wonton. The hot and sour however was done pretty well; it was made with a nice variety of fresh mushrooms, bamboo, and spices and wasn’t too salty. The meals themselves were pretty good made with fresh veggies and lean meats. The brown rice was equally as good and a nice option with our meals.
The food came out quickly, was hot, and our glasses were always filled. Hot tea is free, so that is a huge plus for me. Overall Dragon China makes lunch easy while tasting great. If you’re in the Dr. Phillips and need a good Chinese restaurant, definitely keep this one in mind.
Dragon China is located in the Publix plaza in Dr. Phillips at 7538 W Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, FL
