adding to the rotationPosted: October 25, 2012 Filed under: Food and Drink, Local matters Leave a comment
I’m sure you’re familiar with how Chinese fast food places work. There is a hot table of prepared food, and usually an option for a 3 item plate or a 4 item plate, but one item must be rice, steamed or fried, or maybe also chow mein. I never got that. Why not say two items with rice or three items with rice? But never mind.
We have two of those places in Gilroy, both close to us and within a half mile of each other. There’s Fast Dragon and Mr. Hong’s. I’ve eaten at both, but generally preferred the latter. However, Fast Dragon changed hands recently and with the new owner I think it is now a cut above Mr. Hong’s.
In addition, they now also offer made-to-order plates. Terry and I went there last Thursday with the intent of giving those a try. I had the Thai Basil Chicken and Terry had the Chicken Curry. We were both impressed and both loved the bite we had of the other’s dish.
Never mind that the food is served on styrofoam plates with plastic utensils. I just think of it in the context of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Fast Dragon’s made-to-order dishes are in every way equal to our late, lamented Thai restaurant.
Given our now reduced lunch time options, Fast Dragon will certainly become part of our lunch rotation.
