On our first night of being parentless in Hong Kong, we chose to spend our dinner somewhere close to our hotel. Actually, we chose the restaurant right inside our hotel. Haha! Being the older sister, I was a little cautious on where to take my sister. Responsibility stamped on my face yo! If I change the scenario, it would be different when I’m alone. I’ll probably ride a cab and take an adventure in hole in the wall restaurants in the city. But that wasn’t the case. I had to forget my own wants and plans, and prioritize my sister’s safety instead. That’s why we ended up in a restaurant so close to our room – just an elevator away.
Dragon Inn Restaurant, inside Regal Airport Hotel, entertained us with their Shanghai, Yangzhou and Huai Yang selections. All we really wanted was a decent Chinese fine dining food away from the crowd, followed by a quiet space with good food. We found that inside Dragon Inn.

The Food:

Spicy Pork with Shrimps Dumplings (HKD 68)
Rate: 4/5
6 pieces of Spicy Pork with Shrimps Dumplings started occupying our table and welcomed us with its glorious spicy flavor. Scared to lose my appreciation for its plump shrimps and meaty pork by soaking them longer on chili sauce. Pulled the dumplings out of the bowl and transferred on my plate to get a balance of chili spices and the meat itself.
Stir-fried Diced Chicken with Chili and Cashew Nuts (HKD 128)
Rate: 4/5 
 A hilltop of Stir-fried Diced Chicken with Chili and Cashew Nuts was up next. Steamed rice needed to pair up with this dish to reduce the deeply flavorful diced chicken meat.
Pan-fried Prawns with Salty Egg Yolk (HKD 238)
Rate: 5/5
 8 pieces of Pan-fried Prawns with Salty Egg Yolk was proclaimed the winner at Dragon Inn. Striking salty egg yolks, slimed with tiny chunks, wrapped around these chubby prawns swept me off my feet. While on my 3rd piece and Reine on her 3rd as well, I talked to her seriously, “Dude, can I please have the last 2 pieces?” What is ‘matakaw’?!? Hahaha! Oh I still can’t forget the taste! I wish I have a personal chef who can cook this dish for me.

The Ambiance:

The entrance of Dragon Inn is a reminiscent of old Shanghai with traditional decor of lanterns. Chinese style wood furnitures, art pieces, colors and patterns exist in every picture taken.
There’s a feel of Chinese royalty in any corner you sit yourself. Servers treated us like royalty, assisted us immediately in every request we make and gave us genuine service. I felt I made a good decision in taking my sister to dinner at Dragon Inn Restaurant.
This Chinese restaurant has been awarded by Philippine Tatler’s Best Restaurants for 2 consecutive years (2013 & 2014).
We had a fabulous meaninful time together! Flow of conversation about food and life at that spot. From that dinner, I affirmed my 16-year old sister is a mature young lady.
We survived our first night without our parents! We missed them but we needed this time to learn more from each other.
