A Caveat

Update: Dragon Express closed on 4/05 and is now Chopsticks Express.

Dragon Express is a little Chinese restaurant right next to the 7-11 at the intersection of East 14th Street and 136th Avenue. It offers ready-made Chinese food at rock-bottom prices. A combo of Chow Mein or Fried Rice plus one entree is $3.30, two entrees for $4 and three entrees for $5. We both got the 2-entree combo and it was a HUGE portion. We were starving but we could only finish half of it. Of course, the quality of the food didn't compel you to eat much of it.

Mike got the spicy chicken (it was spicy) and the sesame chicken (it had sesame seeds) and I got the orange chicken and the sweet & sour pork. I am going on trust here that any of these dishes had any meat, whatever there was was completely overwhelmed by the coating. It tasted OK, all the dishes pretty much the same. The chow mein, thick noodles mixed with cabbage, carrots and the occasional piece of chicken, had a strange, off taste to it and I didn't like it.

Dragon Express has a full menu of dishes I imagine prepared to order, most under $6. They deliver for $1 in San Leandro with a minimum order of $16.

I can't imagine we'll go again, unless we're completely broke and extremely hungry.
