Pete and I had an ADR at Nine Dragons for dinner. We got hungry about an hour earlier than our ADR time, so we checked to see if we could be seated earlier. They seated us immediately. The tables were really close together, and I felt like we were practically sitting with another couple because our tables were only a couple of inches apart. We decided to get the General Tso's chicken dumplings for our appetizer. This appetizer took the place of 2 appetizers on the DxDP. The dumplings were steamed and served with a dish of General Tso's sauce. The waiter also brought over a bottle of soy sauce, and told me that I should probably use it, because the red sauce would be too spicy for me and told Pete to enjoy the General Tso's sauce. It was weird. Pete actually ended up using the soy sauce, because the other sauce was sitting well with his stomach. I thought the General Tso's sauce was great, and I ended up eating more than my share of dumplings. Pete ordered the Peppery Shrimp for his meal. The shrimp were served with spinach noodles. Pete mostly ate the shrimp. The noodles were very garlicky with a little bit of pepper flavor. Pete didn't think the noodles were sitting well with his stomach either, so he gave them to me. I love garlic, so I was in heaven. I could have eaten nothing but those noodles and been extremely happy. I ordered the honey sesame chicken. This was served with rice. The sauce was sweet, but a little bland. It could have used just a little spice, I think. Overall, it was really good, and it went well with spinach noodles. There was really nothing on the dessert menu that appealed to me, but Pete wanted to get the caramel ginger ice cream. I tried a little, and there was way too much ginger flavor for me. Pete ate a few bites, then decided that he agreed with me. We would definitely go back to Nine Dragons again, but we'd skip dessert. I still wanted dessert, we made a quick trip to the French bakery. I had a sacristain, which is puff pastry dough with chocolate chips and an icing drizzle. This was delicious (much better than the caramel ginger ice cream).
