Dragon Palace Chinese Restaurant, Northbridge

My Dim Sum favourite at the moment is Dragon Palace. The quality of the food is good, the menu is good, and it was the first time ever I saw a smile from a waitress working at a Dim Sum restaurant! Quite rare since they are always frantically running around.

If you come before 11.30am you should get a table fairly quickly.

Dragon Palace

Depending on my mood I sometimes stick to the usual pot of chinese jasmine tea or sometimes I order chrysanthemum tea.

Sui Mai of Prawn and Fish Roe $4.90

Dragon Palace Sui Mai

One of the most common dishes for dim sum. Bursty prawn and pork dumplings wrapped in wonton skin and then steamed.

Har Gow Steamed Prawn Dumplings $4.90

Dragon Palace Ha Gow

Prawn pieces in a translucent starch wrapper folded in pretty pleats.

Steamed Crystal Dumplings with Scallops and Corn $5.90

Dragon Palace Scallops and Corn Dumplings

I love steamed scallops and the sweetness of  the corn gives this more on a kick.

Pan-Fried Turnip Cake with Bacon in XO Sauce $5.60

Dragon Palace Radish Cake with Bacon in XO Sauce

This has got to be one of their signature dishes. Cubes of raddish cake tossed with crunchy bacon bits in a dark chilli XO sauce. Crispy outside coating with a soft centre. Not greasy like at some other places.

Cooking Mama China cooks this at home and this is almost as good as hers.

Cha Siu Bau Steamed BBQ Bun $4.90

Dragon Palace Steam BBQ Pork Buns

Steam chinese bun with a BBQ pork filling.

Lo Mai Gai Lotus-Leaf Glutinous Rice $5.90

Dragon Palace Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice

Sticky rice parcel with gravy meat filling some sausage, mushroom and egg.

Lotus-Leaf Glutinous Rice Innards $5.90

Dragon Palace Lotus Leaf Glutinous Rice Innards

The glutinous rice is coloured from lotus leaf and the aroma rushed up your nose when you open it.

Cheong Fun Prawn Rice Noodle Rolls $5.60

Dragon Palace Rice Noodle Rolls with Prawns

The rice flour noodle rolls was thin and not a bit mushy. At some other restaurants I’ve had mushy, gooegy batter which is really offputting.

And now for the deep-fried items…

Chilli Pepper Whitebait $5.90

Dragon Palace Chilli Pepper Whitebait

Traditionally I’m use to having squid tentacles but this was a wonderful change. Deep extra fried whitebait with chilli, salt and pepper with peanuts.

Deep Fried Prawn Wantons with Mayonnaise $5.90

Deep Fried Prawn Dumplings

If anyone knows what kind of mayonnaise they use with this dish please tell me so I can get a kilo of it.

Deep Fried Meat Dumpling $4.90

Dragon Palace Deep Fried Meat Dumplings

Crispy outside and hollow on the inside, these savoury oval balls are a savoury version of mochi balls filled with minced meat.

Our Busy Table

Dragon Palace Lunch

Beef Belly and Spicy Chicken Feet was also consumed both had delicious sauces.

Dan Tat Flakey Egg Tart $4.90

Dragon Palace Egg Tarts

Three per serve! I’m use to only received two per serving.

Sago in Coconut Milk $4.90

Dragon Palace Sago

Up to par.

Grass Jelly $4.90

Dragon Palace Grass Jelly

Not so much. Tasted like it came straight out of a can.

Blocks of coconut jelly.

Fresh Watermelon Juice approx $5.00

    I’ve been on the lookout for a good dim sum place since moving back to Perth – I’ll have to check this one out!

      Ahoy Katy! This is one of the better Dim Sum places out there. One of my other favourite is Dim Sum Cafe on William Street in Northbridge =)

    Dan Tat Flakey Egg Tart and Har Gow Steamed Prawn Dumplings will be a great partner.

    Can you give me an idea what is the best food you taste in that place. LOLS

    Love to eat!

      Hello Troy! My favourite dish there is XO Radish Cake. If you like Dan Tat, I’ve got a blog post on that shortly.

      I’m also curious on your restaurant… it’s very close to where I live! Thanks for commenting.

      Thank you Sandra! If you’re a fan of chilli, Kewpie mayo mixed with a few drops of sriracha chilli sauce is the bomb (:
