While it may still feel like summer, the cooler days of autumn are fast approaching and the rush of “back to school” has kicked into high gear. Now, more than ever, you need to have a “go-to” place to find wholesome and delicious food to help you get back on track for the busy days ahead – a place just like Jade Dragon. Long a familiar sight on Warwick Avenue, this cozy mainstay of the culinary community offers up not only great food, but also friendly service and incredibly affordable prices. Jade Dragon is a family-owned restaurant run by Judy and Rickie Chin who have welcomed customers from all over Rhode Island for over twenty years, including many who travel great distances just to come here. The Chins know their customers and they know great food. Come in today, enjoy the hospitality and tantalizing food and become an official member of the Jade Dragon “family.”
Jade Dragon has an extensive and varied menu of tantalizing Chinese cuisine with a lengthy list of appetizers and a huge selection of combination platters to chose from. To get started, try one of their crispy Spring Rolls, their savory Scallion Pancakes or their finger-licking Beer Battered Onion Rings. Their Pu Pu Platter is perfect for two, three or even FOUR diners and includes Egg Rolls, Chicken Wings, Fantail Shrimp, Chicken Fingers, Spare Ribs, Beef Teriyaki and Fried Wontons. Are you drooling yet? There is more to come.
Jade Dragon serves up some unexpected and enticing dinner entrees as well. Some popular favorites are their heaping combination platters of Chow Mein, Egg Foo Yong, Fried Rice and an endless assortment of meat and seafood, vegetables, egg rolls, Moo Goo Gai Pan and more. There is literally something for everyone.
If you are hungry for some lighter fare, try any one of Jade Dragon’s crispy salads, including their popular Buffalo Chicken Tender and chunky lobster salads. An unexpected surprise at Jade Dragon is their broad selection of American-style classic sandwiches and burgers. Their Chicken Club Sandwich is considered “one of the best around”, but their BLT, stuffed with garden-fresh lettuce, juicy tomatoes and piles of bacon, is a tough contender.
All of Chef Rickie’s meals are made from the freshest ingredients, with special care to keep things light and healthy. Chef Rickie also cooks up some delicious meals that contain no soy or wheat products for today’s gluten sensitive customer.
