"Remember to Remember"

Dragon-i @ Sunway Pyramid

It's another girls day out with my sistas! Another back dated post... please bear with me as I have lots to sort out and catch up. Went shopping with Yen and AiWei at Sunway Pyramid and we were excited to stroll and loiter around the newly extended shoplots. Most of them were not open while we were there, most probably have to wait till the end of the year. Spotted quite a number of eateries! Will be back to explore definitely :)

We decided to have a late lunch at Dragon-i after several dilemmas in decision making. This happens all the times right?


A well-known restaurant for xiu long bao and la mian, needless to describe much, I'm pretty sure there's nothing much to complain.

Drinks to satisfy our thirst and for throat-soothing, Yen and AiWei had the Winter Melon, Longan with Sea Coconut. Cold and hot respectively with each priced at RM4.50.



I opted for Sugar Cane with Water Chestnut, my favourite :) Also at RM4.50.

A definite must-order for us while dining at Dragon-i, the Shanghai Meat Dumpling (xiu long bao). A better version dumplings than Din Tai Fung for sure, the soupy broth, translucent smooth skin and densed meat just made us savour them. RM8 for 4 dumplings ;P

Cute lil' dumplings

Ginger and vinegar~ goes best with these dumplings


Shanghainese styled restaurants or other restaurants that served xiu long baos are growing like mushrooms nowdays. From cheap to unreasonable, tastewise varies. I had some at Puchong the other day, 4 dumplings for only RM4.50. Cheap eh? Delicious too! Will do my review on this later ;P

Coming back to our lunch, the girls made an order of the Steamed Egg Yolk Custard Bun, 3 for RM6. It's the first time I had this and we find them very pleasant! Liquefied egg yolk burried mountainously inside the steaming custard bun.. Ooo. Absolutely lovely :)

3 of us ordered their specialty La Mian;

Yen had the Fried Black Pepper Chicken La Mian for RM 14. Very flavourful and tasty, but somehow she complained that it's too spicy due to overdose of black pepper :P But I still find it acceptable.

I ordered myself the Fried Seafood La Mian priced at RM16. Tastiness not really comparable to the portion of noodle Yen had, I still love the smooth consistency of the noodles generated. A filling portion for me.

AiWei had the La Mian with Minced Meat & Mushroom in Spicy Sauce for RM12. Oops.. forgotten how her share of meal tasted. No complains right AiWei?

Back to shopping business and both my girlfriends are having their hectic finals now. Didn't get to hang out with them these days. Hope they'll pass with flying colours! All the best girls :P Know it's hard. What to do? No Sacrifice... No Victory! LoL ;P

I haven't been to Dragon-i before. A bit outdated. Must try it out soon since you recommended their xiu long bao. The la mian looks fine. Might wanna check it out!

Hmmm I still sitting infront of my computer wondering , how come, hmmm.... one drinks serve in a drinking glass and while the other two drinks serve in plastic cup...looks for cheapo!

Xiu Long Bao November 5, 2007 at 10:25 AM

big boys oven~
haha.. I think they actually wanted to use plastic cups for all but since it's hot, they use glass instead. Lazy to wash!lol
