1992 was a busy year. Bill Clinton would become the nation's 42nd President, the 16th Winter Olympics wrapped up in France, and the country's largest shopping mall was built in Minnesota, delighting shoppers everywhere! It was also the year that a small, family-owned restaurant opened on Warwick Avenue ~ Jade Dragon Restaurant. Jade Dragon Restaurant was the passion and pride of Judy and Rickie Chin who determined early on that their restaurant would be known for the quality of their food, loyalty to their customers and an unbending commitment to excellence. What they could never have foreseen back then was that their friendly, neighborhood restaurant would still be going strong after all these years. Now, as we enter 2014, they have proven themselves true to that goal as their popular restaurant celebrated its 21st year in business on December 30.
Jade Dragon serves up delicious Asian cuisine every day and has accrued a long list of loyal and devoted patrons, many of whom have been fans of the Chins for all 21 years of their operation. Just ask Arthur, a retired teacher from nearby Vets High School, who frequents Jade Dragon and loves absolutely everything he has ever had on their long and diverse menu. Today, he is eating juicy boneless spare ribs, crunchy Crab Rangoon and sticky chicken wings, but tomorrow, it could be a heaping portion of pork fried rice, or finger-licking good Beef Teriyaki, or even crispy Sai Woo Duck! Arthur often begins with an appetizer and bowl of wonton soup, but from that point on, the possibilities are endless!
At Jade Dragon, you will find many unexpected and enticing dinner entrees as well as a long list of delicious appetizers. Some popular favorites are their full-size combination platters of Chow Mein, Egg Foo Yong, Fried Rice and a huge assortment of meat and seafood, vegetables, egg rolls, Moo Goo Gai Pan and so much more. There is literally something for everyone here, including daily specials and many American dishes for those picky eaters in every family. There is also a full-service bar at Jade Dragon that serves up many of Judy's own refreshing creations.
Although the food is consistently appetizing, the one thing that is truly unchanged at Jade Dragon Restaurant is the genuine hospitality, friendship and affection that the Chin's feel for their many customers. On the occasion of their 21st anniversary, they extend their sincerest gratitude for all the continued love and support they feel from these friends and patrons.
